Quinoa Masala Dosa

Hi Buddies,

I’m back with an exciting breakfast recipe. I have borrowed this recipe from my colleague. She tries a lot of quinoa recipes and I liked this one particularly as this healthy and no need to ferment the batter (so simple!!!). To make it more exotic, I decided to make masala dosa with it. I followed my mom’s way of making masala dosas. My family loved these dosas and in fact these tasted better than regular ones. So, try this out for sure !!!
