Sweet Wheat Dosa Using Brown Sugar

This simple and tasty dosa brings back a beautiful memories of my childhood days, where all my cousins used to wait for Friday pooja to get over to indulge this yummy prasadam. Easy to prepare yet tastes so delicious. Though my aunt used to add only chopped coconut pieces, I have included almonds and raisins to make it more tasty and rich. Other dry fruits can also be added to enhance the richness of the sweet.

Ingredients :

3/4 Cup Wheat Flour 
1 Cup Water 
1/2 Cup Brown sugar ( Adjust the quantity according to sweet tooth )
A pinch of salt 
A pinch of Cardamom powder 
6 - 7 Almonds, grated 
6 - 7 Raisins, finely chopped 
2 Tbsp Coconut, grated
Ghee for preparing dosa

Method :

Add sugar and water in a bowl and bring it to boil till the sugar melts. ( String consistency does not required ).

Once done, remove from the flame and add the wheat flour.

Mix well without any lumps and add the grated coconut followed by almonds, raisins, cardamom powder and salt.

The consistency of the batter should be like regular dosa batter. ( not too thick nor thin )

Heat a non stick dosa pan, pour one ladle of the sweet wheat batter.

Smear little ghee and cook both the sides in a medium flame.

Once done, remove from the pan and repeat the process for remaining batter.

Serve hot.

Note :

According to the above measurement, approx 4 - 5 medium sized dosas/pancake can be prepared.

The quantity varies according to the size of dosa.

Adjust the quantity of sugar according to sweet tooth.

Brown sugar can also be replaced with jaggery or regular sugar.
