Banana Dosa

shhhh (Dakshin Copycat Recipe)

This recipe is inspired by Park Sheraton Dakshin’s famous Banana Dosa, and is from my mom. My daughters love this as a snack or dinner. This is also one of my favorite “office-snacks”. These little dosas can be refrigerated and warmed up in the microwave before serving.

What you need:

  • 2 Ripe Bananas
  • 1 Cup Wheat Flour
  • 1 TBSP Rice Flour
  • 1 Pinch Cardamom Powder
  • ½ cup Jaggery/Sugar
  • Coconut Flakes/Bits – 3 TBSP (Optional)
  • 1 ½ to 2 Cups Water
  • Butter/Ghee/Oil for pan frying

Here’s how the cute lil banana dosas are made:

  1. Boil the Sugar/Jaggery with ½ cup water. Keep aside to cool once it comes to a rolling boil. Strain into a mixing bowl
  2. Add to the mixing bowl: mashed banana, wheat flour, rice flour, cardamom powder
  3. Mix remaining water to make a batter (pan-cake batter consistency)
  4. Heat a pan and add a little butter/oil/ghee
  5. Drop 1 spoon of batter onto the pan. Turn & cook the other side till brown. Add a little more butter/oil/ghee for extra yum!


I love Michigan. I love Coffee. I love Baking. I love Rowing. I love Madras.

All that I love, I discovered in Michigan.

Michigan, a stepping stone to a wonderful life… a life that has come full circle as I am back in Madras.

my home, my love! Madras & Michigan.

I left Madras to go to Michigan.  I have left Michigan to return back to Madras.

Waiting to go back, waiting to come home, the heart meanders from Michigan to Madras & Madras to Michigan.

Home now, namma Chennai, er Madras.

Why this “Holiday Cheer” Theme? Because I immediately think of Snow when I think of Michigan, & I think of the Holiday Season when I think of Snow! How I miss the combination of the Snow, Holiday Season & Michigan!
