Paneer Masala stuffed Ragi Masala Dosa

Paneer, this Indian cheese is our family favourite, my fridge will always have this cheese. If i dont go to Indian groceries, i'll make myself paneer at home. However paneer have an important place in our diet. If i have paneer in my fridge, i can just dish out anything with it within few minutes to satisfy everyone's tastebuds at home. When i picked Indian bread basket as this week's blogging marathon's theme, Srivalli mentionned that even Dosa are known as Indian breads, obviously i couldnt resist myself to make this nutritious ragi masala dosa. This time instead of making a simple masala dosa i opted for a lipsmacking paneer masala for the stuffing. Trust me, this ragi masala dosa turned out extremely delicious and everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly this calcium packed protein rich masala dosa.

Paneer stuffed ragi masala dosa

I prepared my ragi dosa batter with whole ragi grains instead of store bought ragi flour, i never forget to grab wholegrains from Indian groceries and this time i picked ragi aka finger millet grains. I love to use wholegrains while making my idli or dosa batters at home instead of sticking with the usual rice or store bought wholegrains flours. Using the wholegrains in batter make them more interesting,healthy and definitely a brilliant way to include in your diet. You can feed easily the wholegrains to everyone at home,trust me this method works best always for me.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#49.
