Cooking from Cookbook Challenge is the name of a series where we get an opportunity to bring out new recipes from newspaper clippings, cookbooks, jotted down recipes, heirloom recipes etc.. This is the brain child of Srivalli of the Blogging Marathon fame! So you can expect entries for this challenge every weekend (Friday or Saturday or Sunday).
In my last trip to India, I was handed over a few cookbooks by my SIL who felt that they would be better utilized in my hands. That is how my small collection of cookbooks started. Now with this challenge, I get the opportunity to cook from those cookbooks and bring some fresh recipes into the open, so to say!
This breakfast recipe was personally chosen by my husband and he specifically asked me to post it today. He liked his selection and said that it was very filling. So even though I had a couple more recipes ready, I am posting this as per his request.

Besan /Chickpea Flour / Senagapindi 1/2 cup
*Kuttu Flour / Buckwheat Flour 1/4 cup
Spinach finely chopped, 1/2 cup
Green Chilies, Salt and Chopped Coriander leaves as needed
Water to make batter
Oil to grease the dosas.
* The original recipe called for jowar flour but jowar flour in my pantry went rancid and so used Kuttu Flour instead.
Method Of Preparation -
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make a flowing batter (like Dosa batter).
Heat a griddle / Tawa and pour a ladle full of batter in the center but do not spread it with the ladle. The batter would adjust its shape by itself.
Spray oil all around the dosa and cover until the underside is cooked.
Flip it and cook for about a minute and remove.
Continue to make more such dosas/omlettes until the batter lasts.
Serve them hot with chutney of your choice.
