Varicha Dosa

Vari or samo is an obvious substitute for rice during the days when people observe religious fast or vrat. So it can be used to make dosas which is a popular breakfast snack. In this dosa we have used vari and sabudana with yogurt to make delicious dosas which once you taste them you will want to make often.
