This was a tricky alphabet, and thanks to this recipe by Tarla Dalal, I could crack it easily. Adapted from this and various other websites, I ended up making this many times before posting it here. For a Gluten free (and sometimes,Vegan) diet which we try to follow mostly at home, this Dosa is very handy and is filling too. Faraali in Hindi means food eaten on days of fasting (esp during Navratri or Karva Chauth etc) when only certain ingredients are eaten due to religious beliefs.
Served here with Suran ki Bhaji (Yam gravy), it was liked by the kids too without actually revealing to them that it contained flours that they would turn up their nose at 🙂 For a complete Faraali dish, you can serve it with peanut chutney.
All in all, an experiment that went well (and many times at that).
