Dosa Waffles | Quick Breakfast | Kids Friendly

Waffles make quick breakfast recipes and they are easy to tweak in all healthy flours by adding leavening agents that give it a crispy outer cover and soft inner layer.But this is different from the usual waffle batter and is made with a well fermented dosa batter without any other leavening.This is an  healthy alternative to dosa and a filling one too.This tastes like uthappam with all veggies and takes up hardly any time to make breakfast unlike regular dosas.My kids love this kind of fusion breakfast and am happy to sneak in veggies too.These waffles can be made without egg too  and I have tried that too.The only disadvantage of not adding the egg is that the batter sometimes remain stick to the waffle maker and there by makes it messy.Adding an egg solves the problem and egg for breakfast is a filling one too.If you are a hard core vegetarian,then try without adding egg.Try using the veggies of your choice and enjoy the yumm breakfast with idli milagu podi or any chutneys !!

Preparation time~15 mins
Cooking time~3-4 mins for each set
Recipe source ~own
Serves 5 waffles in a 13" round waffle maker

dosa batter 2 cups
* egg 1
capsicum/bell pepper finely chopped 1/2 cup
carrots 1/2 cup finely chopped
onion 1/2 cup finely chopped
asafoetida powder/hing/kayam podi a good pinch
grated ginger 1/2 tsp
green chillies 2-3
mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
chana dal 1 tsp
oil 2 tsp
salt to taste

  • Heat a pan and add oil.Splutter mustard seeds followed by chana dal.Add in the asafoetida powder,then chopped green chillies and grated ginger.Now, add in the onions.Add all other chopped veggies.Saute until done or onions turn translucent(leave out a little crunchiness).Switch off flame and leave to cool.
  • In the meantime,add the lightly beaten egg and salt(if required) in the dosa batter.
  • Heat the waffle maker,apply oil liberally and wait till its hot.
  • Pour 1/4 cup of batter in each waffle slots,spread evenly.Cover and cook for 3-4 mins or as per manufacturer's instructions until golden brown.
  • Remove with a fork and serve warm with tomato chutney.

* Use your favorite veggies and chop very fine.
* Adding egg is optional,you can even try adding only white too.This is to help the waffles to comeoff the waffle maker with ease.The first time I tried was without adding an egg,the taste was all good but the some of the waffles got struck in the waffle maker and so tore apart.Try and see if you get it correct.
