- Heat a tawa or iron skillet, add a small laddle of banana dosa mix to it and spread it to form a mini dosa. Don't spread too much. Sprinkle oil or butter. Cook until brown on one side for five minutes and flip the dosa carefully. Cook for a minute and remove from tawa. Repeat the same process for the remaining mix.
- When making this banana dosa for small babies, skip jaggery or sugar.
- I have added little jaggery and topped it with dates syrup so my dosas are more of dark brown in color, if u skip them your dosas would be light brown in color.
- Bananas should be ripen and sweet.
- For small babies, offer as a finger food by cutting into small cubes or Just mash the dosa with your hands/ dip it in warm water and give.
- Don’t spread it too thin, otherwise it may stick to the tawa.
- Introduce this banana pancakes to your baby after introducing banana separate.
- Generally banana doesn’t cause any allergies, but check for symptoms and stop feeding your baby if you find any.
- Adding sugar is not recommended until 1 year of age.
- Always check with your pediatrician before introducing any new food.
