5 Yummy Dishes You Can Make With Dosa Batter

Either we get dosa batters from markets or pre-make them at home. The pre-prep often leaves us with leftover dosa batter. Analysing everybody’s appetite exactly is quite unrealistic. But, instead of wasting the dosa batter, we can make a variety of delicious dishes out of it. So, to avoid unnecessary food wastage we got you five quick, and easy recipes that you can make with the dosa batter.

1. Appe

Appe are semi-fried fritters that are soft and gooey from the inside and has a crispy outer layer. To make Appe at home you just need to add some veggies like chopped onions, coriander, green chilies, carrots, and ginger. Add some basic raw spices like salt, chaat masala, and pepper to the batter. Pre-heat the Appa pan. Put some oil in every section of the Appa pan, and semi-fry your Appe till they turn golden-brown.

Refer to this recipe to get a better idea of the consistency of dosa batter.
