I made the dosas with plain flour. Well, that’s easier and quicker, I prefer rice and lentil dosas :

That was the occasion to cook these long red peppers. They are not hot at all.

Same process as the previous green dosas. I’ve added a whole red chili (minus stalk and seeds), a little minced onion, garlic, ginger and some masala spice mix.

An Indian style pancake with *local* produce. That would be a breakfast, that’s great for a hot hot day brunch too.

For the batter, rinse and soak lentils with brown rice, at least overnight. My ration 1:1 is high in lentils, I like it.
The next day, put the mix in the blender, add salt, turmeric and a little baking powder.

Add cut broccoli stalks and shredded basil. Mix a little more. If you have some broccoli florets you can cut them and add in the batter without remixing.
