The roll-ups are bite-size and filled with colorful veggies(Yes, just sneak in all of them), cheese (mozzarella + paneer/cottage cheese)and drizzled with their favorite tomato ketchup.
To make things even quicker, I made them using the ‘MTR Dosa Mix’(from MTR Instant Breakfast Mix range)which are easily available in many Indian Grocers here in the USA.
Now, a regular Dosa(Indian Crepes) is made using a mix of lentil+rice that is soaked overnight (at least 10-12hrs).
Then ground to a fine paste which is again fermented for a minimum of 8hrs, so the entire process usually takes about 20-24 hrs.
Enter MTR Dosa Mix, which makes making Dosa a breeze as they are completely INSTANT, doesn’t that sound wonderful – Right!
No grinding or fermenting required, just add the mix to water and your batter is ready.
Before I start making the dosas for the roll-ups, I’ve prepped the filling (thinly sliced veggies, grated the cheese), cause once the dosa is made.
You want to start adding the filling and rolling the dosas (hot dosa roll easily).
Once the dosas are rolled, cut them into bite-size pieces or if you want, you can cut them into halves (customize as per choice).
I recently had a couple of my friends come over for ‘Breakfast’ along with their lil munchkins and these Veggie-Cheese Dosa Roll-Ups were put to test (with a couple of my mom friends getting their own homemade kids breakfast too).
Trust me, these roll-ups were an Instant HIT and gone like Abra-ka-Dabra!
OMG, even the pickiest of eater finished it completely (no crumbs left….that a good thing right 🙂
The kids ate in silence and moms watched lovingly ~ Seriously a picture-perfect moment.
So, I think, we are soon going to have many more of these ‘Breakfast Meetups’ with Dosa Roll-Ups.
That’s it for now and do stay tuned as, In the coming months, I would be posting a couple of more fun and delicious recipes using the MTR Breakfast Mixes.
In the meanwhile, do give them a try as they are easily available in Indian Grocer stores and have many options to choose from :
