My little boy usually does not eat vegetables unless it is added in some paratha, dosa, sandwich, pasta etc. My mother in-law asked me to try out this sorakkai dosa for him and it turned out to be yummy. A happy day for me as I could see my son eating the dosa and he could not make out that it has some hidden veggies in it.
So, sharing the recipe for Sorakkai dosa which can be a nutritious breakfast for you family.
