Trivia : Masala dosa was listed as one of the Top 10 food you must eat before you die by Huffington Post in July, 2012.
We’ve all had the traditional dosa. Let us try one with a twist now. Jackfruit is rich in anti-oxidants like vitamin C, carotenoids & flavanones. In the fruit family, it provides the maximum protein content per serving as well. It’s also rich in fibre and micro-nutrients like Magnesium & Potassium. There’s no better way to add a punch to that dosa.
