Here is a crispy dosa recipe with a healthy, delicious stuffing consists of palak and paneer.

Try this; I am sure everyone in your family will like this, especially your kids! 


For Dosa:

Dosa Batter - 7 to 8 dosa's approximately

For Stuffing:

Palak – 2 bunches
Green chillies –1
Onion – 1 medium (finely chopped)
Tomato – 1 small (finely chopped)
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Garlic - 4 cloves (finely chopped)
Red chilli powder – 
 ½ tsp
Corriander powder – 2 tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Garam masala - ½ tsp
Sugar – ¼ tsp
Salt to taste

For seasoning:

Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Oil – 1 tbsp


Remove stems and wash spinach thoroughly.

Blanch spinach and green chillies in boiling water.

Take it out and allow to cool.  Grind spinach and green chilli into a fine paste and keep aside.

Heat oil in a pan; add cumin seeds after it splutters add finely chopped onion, ginger and garlic. Saute till the colour changes.

After that add tomatoes with little salt and sugar.

Fry that till tomato melts. Add in all the spice powders and fry for a minute.

Once the raw smell goes, add in the spinach green chilli paste. Mix well.

Add grated paneer; mix well and switch off the gas.

Don’t over boil them; allow to cook for only five minutes in low flame, otherwise the palak colour will change.

For preparing dosa:

Heat the dosa pan; pour a ladle full of batter and spread it in circular motion from inside. 

Drizzle some oil over the dosa, close with the lid and allow it to cook on both sides (in medium flame).

Once it dosa is cooked, place and spread a tbsp or more of the palak paneer stuffing according to wish and fold.

Serve immediately with coconut chutney (with Red Chilli and Garlic) with sambar.


If you don't want to add paneer; just stop the cooking process with only palak or you can add some vegetables too.

Instead of oil, you can use butter or ghee  for preparing dosa.
