There is no need mention the health aspects of spinach or palak for even a small kid would say how powerful the popeye becomes on consuming spinach, thanks to popeye (or whomsoever designed and linked the character with spinach) by whose courtesy feeding greens to kids have become way easier. I had some not-so fresh spinach in fridge and thought if I can color and fortify my dosas with that… and it worked.
1. Spinach – 1 small bunch
2. Green chilies – 2
3. Dosa batter – 2 cups
4. Salt to taste.
Step 1: Clean and chop the greens and chilies and put them in a mixer and blend well.
Step 2: Mix it with dosa batter, adjust consistency and salt.
Step 3: Prepare palak dosas as normal dosas.
Step 4: Serve hot with chutneys or sambar.
* Alternatively you can saute the chilies and greens slightly or steam them and then blend it, if greens are not pre-cooked, the dosas take a slightly longer time to cook.
* You can add chopped onions to batter or spread them on top like in uttapams to mask the flavor of spinach if you do not like the flavor.
