Banana Dosa

After the savory Plantain dosa, today I have for you a sweet treat - Banana dosa.Sometimes we are left with a little dosa batter that is neither sufficient for the entire family nor do we have the heart to throw it out. During such times, I mix other ingredients into it to get a new tasting dosa that is welcomed by everyone at home.

One such experiment to use up the little left over dosa batter landed on me using a couple of ripe banana that were shouting for attention.The Lil ones will surely love this sweet treat.If the adults have a sweet tooth, they are bound to gobble this up....

 I used:

Leftover dosa batter
Banana , mashed

  1. Add the mashed banana to the batter and mix well.
  2. Heat a griddle and pour a little batter in the center and spread it to a circle.
  3. Cook on both sides and spread a little butter on one side while still on the griddle.
  4. Remove from heat  and serve hot.

Note :

  • You can use leftover batter but it should not be sour.
  • I served this with jaggery and drizzled honey over the dosa. I don;t think any other side dish will be apt other than this.
  • I did not add sugar to the batter. But if you feel the batter is not sweet enough, add some sugar.
  • Using butter is optional. You can drizzle oil instead.
  • This dosa tastes best when served hot.
