Chana Masala Dosa / Black Chickpea and Potato filled savory Crepe

In my house , I have to make everything healthy. So simple masala dosa don't work here, I always end up adding some protein or other vegetables in it. some times I add kabuli chana or carrots. This time I added black chana in it, I always eat only masala while making for others because I just love it. Don't need dosa or puri to eat that flavorful masala. So try this not your regular masala dosa at your home when you are in mood for some south Indian food.

Ingredients :

3 potatoes (boiled in microwave and keep it aside)
2 onions finely chopped
1/4 cup boiled brown chickpeas / kala chana
salt to taste
few curry leaves
1 tsp. jeera / cumin seeds
1 tsp. Turmeric powder
1 green chili finely chopped
2 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. udad dal (white spilt lentil)
lime juice to taste
Fresh chopped coriander leaves
2 cups Dosa batter


Heat a pan. Add oil in it.
Add jeera in it, when it changes it color, add green chili, udad dal, curry leaves.
cook for few seconds.
Add onions and chana and cook and cover for 2-3 minutes.
Mashed boiled potatoes and add it in.
Add salt, turmeric powder and cook for 3-5 minutes on medium low flame.
When its done, add lime juice and coriander leaves and mix and keep it aside.

Take your dosa pan, Take one big ladle of batter and make a big circle in it just like crepe.
Cook till its leaves the sides.
Add the chana masala in it and fold it from both sides.

Serve hot along with sambhar, coconut chutney.

 I had it with Mint coconut chutney, Garlic Black Pepper Rasam, Sambhar.
