Dosa is a very healthy breakfast of south India. Since it has lentils, it is rich source of proteins and carbohydrates. Dosas and idlys are probiotic food as it is fermented. It is beneficial for the absorption of vital vitamins in the body. My mom used to make nice dosas and we used to eat a lot without stopping. It goes well with coconut chutney.
