Bananas are such a versatile fruit. It pairs up so well with so many dishes. Fruit salads, smoothies, milkshakes, cakes, brownies, I pretty much use bananas for everything. This time, banana in the form of traditional dosas for breakfast or for a snack. Soaked rice ground with mashed bananas result in a sweet and soft baalehannina dosa.
These are fun to eat for everyone and the elaichi added to these dosas make them very flavourful. But making dosas means the need to make sides like chutneys. Good news, these dosas do not require any side dishes at all. Baalehannina dosa taste good with just a small piece of mango pickle (maavina midi especially) or a just a little ghee. ... “Baalehannina Dosa | Banana Dosa | Dosa Recipes”
