Create this delicious Gluten Free Spinach Dosa at your home

Dosa is one of the most famous dishes from South Indian cuisine that has found a universal appeal. Dosa is savoured with a delight not only in the Indian subcontinent but also across different parts of the world. The light texture and flavourful profile of dosa has made this food item a favourite breakfast choice all over the world.

Dosa can be prepared in a fairly simple manner as the main ingredient required in the preparation of dosa is a fermented batter. This fermented batter is made out of simple everyday ingredients such as rice or lentils or both. A wide variety of dosas can be created by experimenting with the ingredients to prepare different dosa batters and fillings that are used inside.

Some of the most common types of dosas include paper dosa, mysore dosa, masala dosa etc. where the filling inside each dosa is prepared in different spices. The dosa is then served with a dash of cow ghee alongside different sides such as sambhar, coconut chutney and tomato chutney. In this recipe, we are going to create a unique type of dosa by introducing a healthy punch of spinach to it.

Instead of using the traditional dosa batter, this Spinach dosa will be prepared with batter using the Gluten-Free Aashirvaad Atta. The Gluten-Free Aashirvaad Atta is created using a unique formulation by ITC which provides an appropriate solution for people with gluten intolerance. This Aashirvaad Atta is a unique blend of different attas which include jowar atta, flaked rice atta, ragi atta and Psyllium husk powder. Here’s a look at the preparation of a delicious Spinach Dosa using Gluten Free Aashirvaad Atta.
