Keto Dosa

Oh crepe! Could this really be breakfast?

So my father-in-law is on keto and, after a month of only eating eggs for breakfast, he was done. He wasn’t feeling the love that Indian breakfasts bring – the idlis, the dosas, the upmas, the puttus, the uttapams, the pohas… – which he would have otherwise taken for granted. So my mother-in-law improvised, and made him a keto dosa. Now, if you haven’t eaten dosa, you need to try it at least once in your life. This crisp rice-and-lentil crepe is a staple of the south of the country, eaten with chutneys and curries, stuffed with potatoes (and loaded with cheese, if you’re me) – it’s spectacular. My MIL passed this recipe on to me and I absolutely couldn’t believe the result – a crisp, DELICIOUS crepe that tasted as good or even better than a regular dosa.

Coconut chutney is the perfect accompaniment for the dosa; it’s a few ingredients just ground together and then tempered with some spices. You can also stuff the dosa with your favourite vegetables to make a masala dosa or you can be experimental like I am sometimes and throw in some pulled pork or ham and cheese… just don’t tell my wife’s relatives this.

 

This perfectly doubles up as a keto taco as well

This dosa recipe works perfectly well as a taco, or wrap, in general, as it holds together pretty well.  So you can find plenty of ways to make use of it. Just remember to leave it on the pan till it’s completely cooked and starts to lift up at the edges. Try this crispy crepe once and you’ll find yourself making it every other day. It’s positively addictive.
