I am bit confused, should I call these dosas or pancakes? Actually I wanted to make pancakes, but ended up making them spicy and more like Indian cousin dosas!. These were infact inspired by zucchini fritters that I saw on TV a while ago, which involved deep frying.
Lately, I have started using zucchini a lot. Ishaan is at a stage where he does not want to taste most of the vegetables. So I end up grating and adding them in many dishes. I am not a great fan of sneaking in vegetables for him because I want him to enjoy them as they are, but at 2 years of age(the dreaded terrible twos!) I am ready to do all mommy tactics to get him eat something healthy without fight!. He did enjoy these dosas a lot, so I was happy.
It takes about 10mins to put together batter for these. They taste really great.
1 cup grated zucchini
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 tea spn chilli powder
1/2 tea spn cumin seeds
1 egg white (optional)
1/4 cup breadcrumbs (optional)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and add enough water to make the batter.
Heat a tava and make small thick dosas. Cook from both sides.
I served them with pineapple paank. They go well with a spicy chutney.
