Kanakambaram Dosai | Vegetable Dosai Recipe | Tiffin Box Recipe | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe

Kanakambaram Dosai

Hi Supermoms,

It is always great to bring in some cheer 🎋🎊🎉💃.

Recently, I brought colours to my daughter's tiffin box by making the  'Kanakambaram dosai'. 

'Kanakambaram' is a  beautiful orange hued flower that grows in abundance in South India . It always brings back so much childhood memories. This flower is tied together with other fragrant herbs and flowers to form a strand. When you visit a flower vendor and ask for a strand of 'Kanakambaram', he will always give you a multi-coloured strand of flowers. 

This dosai reminded me of those colours and I thought it is apt to call it ' Kanakambaram Dosai' or just 'Kanakambaram '. 

I prepared coloured dosai batter by grinding vegetables along with soaked rice. You can also add the pureed vegetables to the regular dosai batter also. 

You can try different patterns , designs and shapes with the colourful batter . So much fun !
