Plantain Sweet Dosa

Plantains ( or Ethapazham) are very dear to Keralites. The simplest snack or breakfast item using plantains is prepared by simply steaming the ripe ones. Pazham pori or plantain fritters is a very popular snack and there are lot of other wonderful recipes using them. Plantains are fully loaded with fibre, vitamins and minerals. It is said that once they are cooked, they are low in fat, high in fibre and starch. Today's recipe is a simple sweet dosa. This was an experiment and dosas came out very tasty. Make these as breakfast or snack, kids will enjoy these for sure.



What you need?

1 ripe Plantain (Ethapazham)
1 cup Dosa batter
2 tbsp grated Coconut
2 tbsp Sugar or to taste
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder
A pinch salt



How to prepare?

Cut the plantain into 2 with the skin on. In an idly cooker, steam them for few minutes. Keep aside to cool. Peel the skin off and cut into pieces. Put these in a blender with a little water. Blend until you get a smooth paste.Now add this paste and other ingredients to the dosa batter.Mix well. Add water if necessary to get the dosa batter consistency.

Pour a ladle of the batter on a heated tava. Apply some ghee or oil if you desire. Flip them only once the bottom part is slight brown.Cook on the other side too. Serve warm.
