Banana/Vazhaipazham Dosa

Banana Dosa

My hubby calls this as Innipu Dosa meaning Sweet Dosa in Tamil. It is one of his favorites after badushas. Mom in law makes it for my hubby with lots of love and affection. Since we got married he has been asking me to prepare this. So atlast I called up my mom in law for the recipe. I wanted to prepare this for dinner and give him a surprise. He returned home when I was still preparing the batter. He easily found out with aroma that I was preparing his favorite innipu dosa. He truly relished my version.

(Serves 4)

Ingredients
  • Maida / All purpose flour – 1 cup
  • Banana – 1 (big one)
  • Jaggery (powdered) – 3/4 cup
  • Cardamon Powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Egg – 1 [Optional, I have not used it in this preparation]
  • Water – 1 3/4 cup
  • Ghee
  • Salt – pinch [ I did not add]
Method
  • Pour water in a kadai and bring it to boil.
  • Add jaggery and let it dissolve. Boil for 3-4 minutes. (I added jaggery in parts and tasted it to ensure that sweetness is according to our taste. You can add or reduce jaggery as desired.)
  • In a bowl, mix maida, cardamon powder. Crush the banana and mix it with the flour.
  • Filter the Jaggery water and pour in to the mix. Usually jaggery contains stones/soil, straining will help to remove them.
  • Mix it well to the Dosa Batter consistency. There might be small remains of banana. Let it remain, as it gives a great taste when cooked.
  • Heat the tawa or dosa kal(Tamil). Take a laddle (karandi) full of batter and pour in the center of the tawa. Spread it in a circular motion using the laddle. This will help you to make dosa in the form of circle.
  • Add few drops of ghee along the sides and spread it all over the dosa. (you can use cooking oil instead)
  • Leave it for 30-45 seconds minimum so that underneath of dosa cooks well and then flip it. Pay attention while flipping it. Allow it to cook well before you remove it from the tawa.
  • Serve it hot.

Dosas came out very well and we both enjoyed having it for our dinner. I shall call this one as Banana pan cake :-) The same batter can be used to make sweet paniyarams as well.

I would like to send this to “Satisfy your sweet tooth” Blog event hosted by Sudeshna.
