Sweet Dosa Snack- with Banana

This is another quick snack with leftover dosa batter. It is mildly sweet and perfect with some coffee. This snack is very easy to make, and I have made them in appe pan. If you don't have appe pan you can also deep fry them. I personally prefer the one made in appe pan, since it uses less oil. This is also a very good way to use over ripe banana's.  A similar recipe which is  Banana Dosa  for kids is up on the blog too. Also a Savory version of this snack, a popular Andhra snack,  Punugulu  is up on the blog too.  Do check out other  Snacks  uploaded on blog.  Lets get going and see how this one is made.
