Spinach Tomato Dosa recipe

Spinach Tomato Dosa recipe 

Dosa (crispy savory pancakes) from South India is a staple food in its home region.I want to share a recipe which I made for my husband's lunch.
When I don't find time to make side dish for dosa, I tweak with some garnishing that would make a person forget about any sambar.
Dosa batter
Cherry tomatoes - 5- 6 nos
Chilli  - 2
Spinach - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Garlic ( optional)

Spinach Tomato Spread
Grind all the above ingredients except dosa batter.

Fill the ladle upto the 3/4 level with Dosa batter. Gently pour this batter onto the center of the pan.
Now begin to spread the batter in sweeping circular motions to form a pancake of roughly 8" diameter.
When the upper surface begins to look cooked (it will no longer look soft or runny), spread the spinach tomato paste over it and wait for few seconds before flipping the Dosa. By this time, ideally, the surface that was underneath should be light golden in color.

You could replace any other veggies for the spread, this way kids too get their veggies in the form of spread!!
