Nutritional Comments: You often want to have dosas for dinner, but the use high carb grains make you feel bloated plus you are worried about spiking sugar levels at night. This dosa is your solution. Pumpkin goes very well with quinoa, they complement each other. The pumpkin-quinoa dosa gives you the best of both ingredients- high fibre , low carb from quinoa, high doses of  Vitamin C, iron and folic acid from the pumpkin making this  a healthy variation to your normal rice udad dal dosa. It may be a little low on protein- you can either grind in some pumpkin seeds in the batter (you wouldn’t even taste it and it will give you around 3 gm carbs) or have it with fresh peas chutney.
