Vazhaithandu Dosai (Plantain Stem Dosa)

I learnt this Dosa recipe which can be made without fermentation , from my mother in law. She makes it at least twice a month since Plantain stem is very good for health and adding that to dosa is one of the interesting way to make the kids to eat this healthy vegetable. The very soft and white dosas with crunchy bites of the plantain stem in between gives fantastic feel...
