Dosa Wraps | After School Snacks < 30 minutes

 What do you usually prepare for snacks, or what do you feed kids as after school snacks? My kids take lunch to school, and so they expect a snack when they return from home. But am not a person who would like to feed the packet snacks as those snacks are not filling at all for my kids age. They just grab a pack of snacks and finish in no time and still feel hungry. 

I always try to make things with left over dosa batter, left over idiyappam or make something else that's filling and healthy. This is one such snack that you can prepare in a jiffy, and they totally enjoy. Am also happy as I finish up the dosa batter too. I have added totao chutney in one quarter, salad in anothe, corn fritters in the third and grated cheese to finish the fourth quarter. You can always add a chicken fritter or paneer fritter for a variation. Also, tomato chutney can be replaced with mayonaisse or ketchup or a spicy green chutney. Chat masala can be added to spike it up a little. Give this a try and enjoy !!

 Method
FOR CORN FRITTERS
  • I have used frozen corn. Thaw and use. Pulse half of the corn kernels in a mixer to crush and add the remaining half just like that in a bowl.
  • To this add fine chopped onion, garlic, coriander leaves. Add corn flour, pepper powder and salt. Mix well and add water little by little to make a thick pakora like batter.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add tbsp full of batter to the pan. Spread lightly with the spoon and shape. Once one side is cooked, flip the other side and cook till lightly browned. Drain from oil and keep aside.
FOR DOSA WRAPS
  • Add salt to the dosa batter. Mix well.
  • Heat an iron griddle, make regular dosas. Keep aside to cool lightly.
  • Then place a dosa on a plate or cutting board. Using a pizza cutter, cut from the center on one side (check video for better understanding). Then place tomato chutney on one corner of the dosa, spread in that corner. Place corn fritter on second quarter. Place sliced cucumber and sliced tomato on the third quarter. Finally, place grated mozarella cheese on the fourth. Starting from the tomato chutney corner, fold the dosa in quarters and make a wrap.
  • Heat the iron griddle, apply ghee or oil and place the wraps. Press gently and cook. Flip both sides till crisp and cheese is melted. Remove on a plate.
  • Similarly, make all other wraps and enjoy with ketchup.



NOTES 
 *You can use tomato ketchup or mayonnaise or spicy green chutney instead of tomato chutney if you wish. 
* You can make chicken fritters or paneer fritters instead of corn and enjoy.
