Jowari Dosa- A blend of North and South India

Jowari Dosa is one of the simplest dishes that I have created. I came up with this tasty creation when I changed our daily diet from wheat based to jowar based. Dosa is common in South India and well, Jowar is a common flour used to make rotis in North India. Dosa uses very little oil and is a crispy treat that looks light but fills the stomach easily. Jowar on the other hand is very healthy. Click on the names to find out more on their health benefits.
