I have shared some of the instant dosa varieties last week. Today i have come up with a easy to prepare colourful nutirent dosa to attract kids. The colour of the beetroot when added into the dosa batter gives a colourful and also an inviting dosa for sure. This is so easy to prepare if you have dosa batter inside you fridge.

Adding the vegetable juice inside the dosa batter makes the dosa more inviting, nutritious and flavourful. My kid loves crispy dosas in any form so trying many different dosas helpful to make his breakfast easier and healthier. You can name it as 'Pink Dosa' sure kids get attracted to this colourful dosa!!!
