My family and I have been on a low carb journey. This has helped us tremendously with mental focus, clarity and weightloss. So, I’m always looking for ways to take traditional Indian recipes and substituting the higher carb ingredients with lower carb ingredients. My family loves this low carb Dosa with butter chicken recipe as an alternative to the traditional dosa with sambar or potato masala. My son actually loves this version of dosa instead of the regular dosa as it has his favorite ingredient – cheese.

Dosa is a type of pancake from India and its made from a a fermented batter. It is similar to a crepe in appearance. Its main ingredients are rice and black gram (lentil). Dosa is a typical part of the south Indian diet but is also popular all over India.
What is butter chicken ?
Butter chicken also known as murgh makhani (Hindi) is a dish of chicken in a mildly spiced tomato sauce. This is a famous Indian dish. The chicken takes on an intoxicating aroma as it cooks in the creamy tomato sauce and combination of indian spices.
There is no need for fermenting the batter with this recipe so you can make instant dosa that takes less than 5 mins to make the batter. All you need to do is combine all the ingredients in the recipe ingredient list and you are ready to make this yummy low carb dosa. Traditionally, dosa is served with chutney, sambar, or potato masala. We love to eat this low carb dosa with butter chicken. This makes its a complete breakfast, lunch or dinner.
