Quinoa Dosa - Healthy Dosa

Quinoa Dosa
Starting this month with a healthy breakfast recipe - Quinoa Dosa
Quinoa is pronounced as 'KEEN-wah' and it is a nutritious gluten-free seeds, originally from the Andean region of South America. Its a good source of protein, dietary fibers, vitamin B and iron. Its good for people suffering from diabetic and cholesterol too.

My in-laws brought some packets of Quinoa from their last visit to US and gave me a packet. My hubby started making faces as he hates Quinoa. I was wondering what to do with it. Heard we can substitute quinoa for rice but then nobody would even try to taste it once they know its a Quinoa item. So tried disguising Quinoa and made Quinao Dosa. Only after they had the breakfast I revealed the truth and had a good laugh. If you have a fussy eaters in your home, then try this in a Dosa form and they will never know.
