Instant Banana Dosa/banana pancakes - Soft, thick pancake like dosa made with banana, suji/rava, brown sugar/jaggery and dry fruits. As I have mentioned earlier, my little one love bananas and hence I experiment many recipes with bananas. This instant banana dosa recipe was a real hit at home and tastes excellent with sooji. It tastes so good when it hits your lips and will be finished in no time! This banana dosa can be given to babies after 8 months as a finger food.
