Sabudana Dosai

Hi Supermoms,

Sabudana/Javvarisi/Tapioca pearls has so many health benefits. Sabudana Vadai , Sabudana Payasam and Sabudana Khichdi are quite popular. I have earlier shared Sabudana Paratha recipe. Today I am going to share Sabudana Dosai recipe. It is quite easy to prepare and gives a great variety to your tiffin. 

I have added onions and green chillies to the batter, but you can add vegetables of your choice and make it more appealing.
