Palak Plain Dosa

Palak (Spinach) Dosa is one healthy breakfast option, instead of a regular plain Dosa. Adding Spinach to the regular dosa batter will make it rich in ironand vitamins. Palak dosa can be prepared in many ways like the one I have explained here by adding palak extract to the dosa batter / add palak sabzi along with boiled potato or paneer and spread it over the dosa / fry the spinach and add it in the dosa batter and prepare it like uttapam. Near to our house in Bangalore near the park a person serves 100 varieties of dosas, I love the sabzi that he prepares using palak, potato and cheese. It simply melts in the mouth. We will see below the simple way of preparing plain palak dosa by adding spinach extract to the dosa batter.
