White Pumpkin (Ash gourd) Dosa - Vellai Poosanikai Dosa

White Pumpkin(Ash gourd) Dosa is an easy tiffin for your breakfast or dinner. Another healthy recipe from my Grandmother. It is one of our family favourite dinner dishes.


These white pumpkin dosas are delicious and a great way to use the white pumpkins. My husband likes white pumpkins very much and always get a whole white pumpkin from the market. It will be good up to a month before cutting and you have to finish it within a day after cutting them. So whenever he bought this vegetable, definitely this dosa will be in our menu. We always prepare kootu, sambar and thayir pachadi with this white pumpkin, but I wanted to try something different with this vegetable. As usual, I asked my grandmother to tell me ideas to prepare healthier dishes with this white pumpkin. My grandmother told me they prepare this dosas frequently with this white pumpkins during their olden days with their garden fresh pumpkins. Now these dosas are unbelievably easy to prepare. Start by soaking the rice and dals for 2 hours. Simply cut the pumpkins into large cubes. After 2 hours grind the rice and dals along with the pumpkin cubes. No need to ferment the batter and start preparing your dosas right after grinding the batter. Easy to prepare right. You can serve this dosas with red coconut chutney.
