Sabudana Dosa or Tapioca pancake is a very healthy, easy to make and tasty dosa that can be prepared even on fasting or vrat days.
Are you tired of trying out regular dosa ? Then try out this appetizing and quick alternate dosa recipe. What I love about this dosa is that it requires no grinding or fermentation. You can serve this for breakfast or even as complete meal. I have served it with spicy tomato curry.
Sometimes the tapioca that I get from stores do not work well for making sabudana khichdi, as it becomes mushy and find it difficult to handle. Instead of throwing away the packet, I decided to try preparing dosas with it and the outcome was a big success. Even after it cools down this dosa remains soft and tastes good. Do try out this recipe and share your comments and variations.

- Semolina or Sooji can be skipped and mashed potatoes be added to make traditional sabudana thalipeeth.
