Savory Soy Crape - Heart Healthy - Soya Dosa

Savory Soy Crape - Heart Healthy - Soya Dosa

As a food blogger  I am always on the lookout for new ingredients, recipes, methods of cooking or cooking gadgets. I love flipping through food magazines, browsing food catalogs, walking through the aisles of speciality food stores or sampling food at the farmers market. I get really worked up and get inspired to cook should I find that unique recipe or an ingredient. As much as I cook regular food everyday, I make it a point to try at least one new recipe every week. Some times it's a hit and some times it goes straight to the sink.

Last few weeks back had my yearly physical checkup, as a part of the checkup doctor always makes it a point to mention regular exercise, limited carbs and diet rich in protein and dietary fiber for a healthy heart and mind. Being a vegetarian finding good sources of protein is quite challenging but thanks to stores like Traders Joe you find a variety of options, inspired by the quest to find high protein sources brought soy bean flour from Traders Joe.

Dosa's or crepes are always a favorite at home, so decided to make savory soy bean flour dosa's / crepes. Simple and easy to make and best of all no preparation required ahead of time.
Makes for about 6 crepes

1 Cup Soy bean flour
2 tbsp rice flour
1 tbsp of Besan(Chickpea flour) (optional)
1 tbsp sooji rava (optional)
1 red onion finely chopped
1 Carrot finely grated
1 green chili sliced finely
1/2 cup fresh corriander chopped finely
2 tbsp of yogurt( optional)
Salt according to taste

1. Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl and add water to make it to consistency a little thinner than pancake batter.
2. Heat a tawa/griddle, when hot ladle batter into a circle and add little bit of oil around the edges.
3. Allow to cook for about 30~45 seconds and turn around and cook on the other side.
4. Remove from heat and serve hot.

 Soy crepe or dosa can be served with Peanut chutney or your choice of chutneys featured on this blog.

Healthy eating does not have to be hard and time taking, you just have to look around and there are a tons of options for easy and delicious recipes.

Have a great week ahead everyone.
