Kids love to eat varieties of dosas, uttapams & pancakes as they are different colors and tastes delicious. It is one of the best ways to sneak in some vegetables or lentils into the kid's diet.
Dosa - Indian crepe made from rice and lentils. It's a staple breakfast in south India served along with sambar or chutneys.
pancakes - round soft flat cakes prepared with instant batter.
Dosa/uttappams/pancakes are great finger foods to start with, which encourage self-feeding in babies! Initially, when you begin, you can offer as tiny cut pieces of dosa/pancakes/uttappams. If your baby is not ready for finger foods, you could soak in dal, curd or any mild gravy and feed your baby. Many dosa recipes can be given to babies from 8-10 months, but some dosa recipes are better suited to slightly older babies.
Hence choose recipes according to your baby's age which is mentioned in the brackets along with the recipe. Please refer to the notes section given at end of this post for the points to remember before making these dosa recipes for your baby!
