This is probably the healthiest dosa, according to me.....
Dosa contains greens...drumstick leaves, curry leaves and coriander leaves.....
The health benefits of these have been discussed several times!
Drumstick aka Moringa leaves are highly nutritious, and provide all essential nutrients for people who lack them.
Curry leaves reduce unwanted fat in the body, good for those suffering from diabetes, control cholesterol and keep constipation at bay.
Coriander aka Cilantro leaves reduce blood pressure, cholesterol, treat mouth ulcers, treat urinary infection, promote good sleep and eye health.
So, just nutritious it is when we eat dosas made out of these 3 super ingredients!!!!
Like Mudakkathan dosa and Pesarettu, this is yet another Green Dosa!!!!

Hing powder - 1/2 tsp
Jeera/cumin - 1 tsp

*If you want crisper dosas, then add 2 more ladles of dosa batter, and keep it not too thick but little bit thinner (but definitely not like rava dosa batter)
