Kale dosa

Kale dosa


Dosa is a yummy side dish in India, although often people eat it whenever – because it’s a delicious healthy bread-y snack. Actually it’s more of a crepe.

1 cup besan flour (chick pea)

1/4 cup brown rice flour (see note below)

1 tsp salt

3/4 cup water

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp chilli flakes

1 cup shredded kale (or you can substitute grated zucchini, or baby spinach)

1 tablespoon chopped coriander


Blend the dry ingredients then pour in the water and mix the batter until it is lump-free. Then add the kale.


Get a flat skillet (or flat electric frypan even) and heat with some oil until hot. Add a dash of oil or spray oil.

Add a spoon of mixture and with the back of the spoon, swirl the mixture around in circles until the crepe/dosa is and spread in a large circle.  When you can see the dosa has dried out, add either a spoon of oil on top or spray oil the dosa.

Flip the dosa over and cook on the other side.


I basically (with some slight changes) got this recipe from here. There is a lovely video there of how to make dosa if you are keen.

Just note, you need the veggies in the dosa if you use brown rice flour (to balance the moistness ratio). If you are leaving out the greens, leave out the rice flour too. Enjoy!
