I have always been a huge fan of instant and crisp dosa recipes. This is very clearly visible in my blog as you can see different types of instant dosa or an extension to rava dosa recipe. But I recently stumbled upon this simple instant spinach dosa and I was totally awestruck. To begin with, the color of the dosa is so attractive. Perhaps there is no other dosa recipe with a green-colored texture. This makes it interesting and appetite. In addition, the use of spinach puree in a rava & rice flour batter makes it so healthy dosa recipe. We all know that spinach contains a lot of fiber and iron content in it. Hence all those nutrients are passed to the dosa, making it one of the healthy dosa meals. Particularly, this can be an ideal meal for kids who skip or do not like vegetables in their meals. Do try this and let me know if you like it.

Instant Crispy Palak Dosa In addition, some more related and additional tips, suggestions, and variants to the palak dosa recipe. Firstly, do not add the palak or spinach leaves directly. You have to blanch the leaves in boiling water before the puree is prepared. You can easily prepare a smooth paste out of it and it can be easily mixed with dosa batter. Secondly, there is no fermentation step in this recipe. However, if you are planning to use rice and lentil mix, you need to ferment it. You basically soak the rice and urad dal in a 3:1 ratio and add spinach puree to it. Lastly, the consistency of the batter has to be watery and can be easily poured on top of the dosa pan. Also, it is best to use a nonstick pan compared to cast iron which makes it a nonsticky and crispy dosa.
