Sattu maavu Dosa

Making a toddler eat something like 'porridge' is real nightmare. My son takes immense pleasure in spitting it our whenever i try to feed him some. So, i came up with this idea of 'Sattu maavu Dosa'.
'Sattu maavu' is nothing but a powder made up of different pulses and grains that can be given to toddlers. I made dosa's with this as he loves to eat Dosa. Not just Dosa, but anything off our plate would be his favourite ;-)

Ingredients :

Sattu Maavu - 1 Cup
Sugar - 2 tablespoons
Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Water - Just enough to prepare the batter

Method :

Mix the Sattu maavu, Sugar and Water. Let it have a little watery consistency than the usual dosa batter. Pour on very hot pan and sprinkle a few drops of ghee. Dont let it overcook as it tends to become hard. Apply some more ghee on the Dosa and Serve hot.

Verdict :

He just loved it. Even took tiny pieces of the dosa with his cute little hands and fed himself.
I am happy that in some form or the other i will be able to give him this. If you dont like to add Sugar, you could make plain dosa and serve it with little honey.

Note : This is my first post on the receipe, hence no photos as of now.
