Buckwheat Dosa

A crispy and tasty instant buckwheat dosa which is a protein packed and delicious dish to make in fasting days too.

This buckwheat dosa wasn’t supposed to be the recipe of the day.In fact, I had three more dishes ready in the drafts from which one was meant to be the post of the day. But I changed the plan at last moment and am posting this buckwheat dosa instead that I made today.

As we are fasting for 9 days  I am making saatvik food for either lunch or dinner, I mean we are eating only once in a day. So as today is weekend this thali was for the lunch. Buckwheat is a good source of protein and has become a popular gluten-free superfood these days.  It is the only second ingredient that we are getting here in Ireland apart from Barnyard millets,[which is a recent addition to the Asian store this year] for fasting food is what I am using mostly.

We, adults in the family, are fasting and the girls love the food that I make during these days. So basically I don’t have to cook separately for them. That’s the plus point I like and I won’t have to run behind them to eat as they can have all of it without complaining.
