You already have the recipe for Dosai Batter but for kids, you really don’t want to serve a crispy dosai, that would only lead to that meal being prolonged. I have been spending a lot of time with my nieces and if your kids are anything like these boogers, the meal already takes an hour, no need to add to it. With the kid version, it is so much easier to make a fat, soft and fluffy dosai topped with cheese. It is very important that you make sure the batter is fully cooked so I recommend turning the heat down to a medium-low or even low if your range runs on the hot side.
1 cup Dosai Batter
Oil for the pan
¼ cup shredded cheese
Heat the pan to medium-low heat and add oil to ensure the batter does not stick. Pour 1/8 cup of batter on the griddle at the four corners of the pan and allow it to cook, once the bottom is golden brown (should take 2-3 minutes) flip with a pancake flipper.
Add cheese to the top and cover with a lid. After another 2-3 minutes, serve. I like to cut them into strips for older kids so they can dunk them. As you can see, both of my nieces are very fond of this dish.
