1 tsp roughly chopped garlic (lehsun)
2 tsp oil
2 pinches of turmeric powder (haldi)
1/2 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste
1 1/2 cups readymade dosa batter
2 tbsp melted butter for cooking

For Serving

  2. Heat the oil a broad non-stick pan, add the prepared spinach mixture, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Keep aside.
  3. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), sprinkle little water and wipe it off gently using a muslin cloth.
  4. Pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it in a circular motion to make a 175 mm. (7”) diameter thin circle.
