Black Chana Gravy with Dosa

Dosa is indigenous to South India, In popular tradition, the origin of dosa is linked to Udupi, probably because of the dish’s association with the Udupi restaurants.  Also, the original Tamil dosa was softer and thicker. The thinner and crispier version of dosa, which became popular all over India, was first made in present-day Karnataka.

Dosa, a common breakfast dish and  is rich in carbohydrates and contains no sugar or saturated fats. As its constituent ingredients are rice and Urad Dal, it is gluten-free and becomes a complete protein The fermentation process increases the vitamin B and vitamin C content. There are also instant mix products for making dosa, with somewhat lower nutrition.
