The Spinach Dosa is yet another colourful dosa which will attract the kids for sure. Easy as well as a healthy dosa recipe. I love to incorporate spinach in my cooking as it is  nurtitious green leafy vegetable. Here I have not precooked the spinach so the nutrients will not get lost while roasting the dosa. I have made dosa thin and so one need not flip the dosa to get it fully cooked.

This dosa goes well with any kind of chutney and sambar. Perfect healthy breakfast made in a jiffy, if you have dosa batter inside the fridge. Can not make dosa batter healthier than this. Do try this dosa recipe and stay healthy.
