Mint coriander leaves dosa

I learnt this mint, coriander leaves, curry leaves dosa recipe (Pudina, kothamalli, karuveppilai dosai in Tamil) from my friend Shalini. She calls it as “Green Dosa”. Shalini has been telling me for long time to try this healthy dosa recipe and post here. But somehow I couldn’t do it. 

Last week when I bought a fresh bunch of mint and coriander leaves, I remembered about this dosa recipe and tried it without further delay. It came out really well. Color, taste and flavor of this dosa was awesome. Raksha and Sendhil liked it very much. I had a great satisfaction of including mint, coriander leaves and curry leaves in our diet. 

Many people doesn’t like to eat curry leaves and coriander leaves added in their food. They remove and keep it in a corner of the plate. For those people,  this dosa is a good way to include these greens. It tastes like our regular crispy dosa but looks green and smells more flavorful. Friends, do try this yummy green dosa at home and share your feedback with me. I will try to share some interesting and healthy dosa varieties in upcoming weeks. Stay tuned !

  • Transfer the batter to a bowl. Cover it with a lid. Ferment overnight or 12 hours for the batter to raise well. Suppose If you grind the batter in the morning around 10am, you can make the dosa for dinner around 7pm. It tastes good too. But overnight fermentation gives a nice flavor to the dosa.

  • Addition of ginger is optional. But it gives a nice flavor to the dosa and also helps in digestion.
  • Quantity of curry leaves used is less than mint and coriander leaves. If you like, you can add equal quantity too.
  • You can make this dosa for dinner if you grind the batter in the morning.
  • You can also add a pinch of turmeric powder to get nice green color dosa.
  • Addition of chana dal and toor dal gives a nice golden hint to the dosa.
