It is officially pumpkin season and I want to share a timely recipe for this season...Fresh Pumpkin Dosa. There is no shortage of common pumpkin recipes like Pumpkin pie or even Pumpkin Bread. But there is so much more you can do with Pumpkins like the Low Fat Pumpkin Dal and today's recipe - Fresh Pumpkin Dosa. Let us get started with this gluten-free, vegan Pumpkin Dosa that you could prepare today!
This recipe is somewhat similar to Cucumber Dosa that I had shared last year with one major difference. I did not add any ingredient like Jaggery for sweetening the dosa. The reason being the natural sweetness in Pumpkin!
Adding Jaggery will steal the authentic pumpkin flavor. The list of ingredients for the batter is rather simple with two main items: Rice and Pumpkin. Once you prepare the dosa, all you need is a savory coconut chutney on the side. You can also try my recipe for Green Tomato chutney if you prefer a tangy taste.
Last but not least, there is a little bit of prep work that needs to go in, for this recipe. You will need to soak the rice for about 3 hours to let them soften. Everything goes pretty fast after that 🙂 Check my step by step for more details. Try it today and don't forget to leave a comment here or on my Facebook page.
