Egg Dosa is a street food and served in road side open tea shops. Have not tasted it from outside. But when ever i make dosa my hubby always wants to finish it with an egg dosa. So i learnt to prepare the recipe. Initially i was doing simply by adding eggs,onion , seasoning with pepper and salt. But then i have added my twist to feed my kid in a healthy way. This recipe also turned out really well.

       My son too kind of  liked it and i guess, he felt like he was eating an omelet. I was twice happy that i fed him  a dosa, an egg and also some veggies in a single simple dosa. So satisfied that i had fed Carbohydrates Proteins, Fats, and other Nutrients  what ever kids need together at one time in a single dosa. Easy to make healthy dosa with out any effort. It does not require any dip, serve with sambar or chutney if you want to.
