Healthy Mixed Flour Dosas and Peanut Chutney

Yesterday was World Diabetes Day. Mixed flour dosas and Peanut chutney are something Diabetic patients can have without regret.
Mixed flour dosas are healthy and tasty. Apart from all purpose flour, it also contains whole wheat atta, soyabean flour and ragi powder which enhances the nutritive value. Adding egg makes it tasty and helps to make smooth dosas which do not stick to the pan. You can avoid egg if you are a vegetarian. It can be served for breakfast or dinner.
I make different kinds of Peanut chutneys. Here I am posting one of the recipes for Peanut chutney which I served with the dosas.


Whole wheat atta -1 1\2 cups
Maida -1\2 cup
Soyabean flour -2 tbsp
Ragi powder -2 tbsp
Egg -1
Water -2 cups or more
Salt -to taste


In a bowl, beat the egg well. Add water and beat again. Add the flours and salt and mix with a whisk to form a smooth batter of dosa consistency. Heat a frying pan or dosa tava. Smear some oil on it and pour a big spoonful of the batter. Make a round dosa with the back of the spoon. Sprinkle few drops of oil on the dosa. Keep on medium flame. When one side is done, flip the dosa and fry the other side. Transfer to a serving plate. Make similar dosas with the rest of the batter. Serve it hot with Peanut chutney. To prepare a healthy snack for kids, spread some jam on the dosa and roll it!

For the Peanut chutney:

Peanuts -2 tbsp
Tomatoes -2 chopped
Dry red chillies -2
Peppercorns -4
Cumin seeds -1\2 tsp
Curry leaves -5
Coriander leaves -1 tbsp chopped
Garlic -2
Tamarind -1 small gooseberry size
Salt -to taste
Oil -1 tbsp


Dry roast the peanuts, cool and remove the skin. Keep aside. Heat oil in a frying pan, add all the ingredients except tamarind and salt. Fry them till the tomatoes are soft. Cool and grind them along with peanuts, tamarind and salt adding a little bit of water to form a fine paste. Transfer the chutney to a bowl and serve with dosas.
