My cravings for South-Indian food has gone crazy these days and I am dying to try out different and unique recipes with dosa and idly batter. I previously posted pizzappam (mini uttappam pizza) using idly batter and now here I am sharing with you spring roll dosa. I ate this several times in restaurants recently and was waiting to try it out. It is simple, quick and a perfect option for a light dinner menu. Fill it with lots of veggies and it will be your healthy dinner as well.

I served this along with Italian pasta salad (recipe soon :)) and sweet and spicy orange chili sauce. The spring roll dosaΒ per serving came to about 260 calories, so a very healthy option for a light meal πŸ™‚
