If you have got bored of having dosa the traditional way with chutney and sambar, then this appetizer is just for you. They are both visually appealing and appetizing as well. I stuffed each dosa with some palak-paneer and rolled them into some yummy snacks / appetizer. Pack them for a lunch box meal or serve as an after school snack for kids. It can be enjoyed as it is or with some homemade dip of your choice.
- 100 gms. paneer cubes
- 1-2 bunches spinach, blanched & pureed
- 1 tbsp. oil
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp. coriander powder

Other Ingredients -
- 2-3 cups idli / dosa batter
- 2-3 tbsp. oil to shallow fry

Stuffing - Heat 1 tsp. oil and saute the paneer till light brown. Drain and let it cool down. Then mash well and keep aside.
Heat remaining oil and saute the spinach and all the powdered spices till dry. Let it cool down. Then mix the mashed paneer, spinach and coriander leaves. Keep aside.
Dosa - Heat a non-stick tawa and pour a ladleful of the batter. Spread it around and cook on a low flame for 1-2 minutes.
Spread a layer of the palak paneer stuffing over the dosa and cut the dosa into 2" long strips. Gently roll the dosa from one end to the other and arrange on a serving plate.
Make similar stuffed dosa rolls with the remaining batter and the stuffing. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with any homemade chutney of your choice as an appetizing appetizer.
