Tricolour Dosa

Tricolour dosa –  What does that mean? how can we make it? So a lot of questions might arise when we hear the name. Let me tell you the reason for its name. I have used three coloured batter to make this dosa. The theme is based on Indian flag. It has saffron, white and green colour with Ashoka Chakra in the centre. So I want to make something special for Independance day. That was how this dosai is born. And the most important point is there are no artificial colours in this recipe. All the three batters have unique flavour and they go best with coconut chutney.
