I am sure your little one will relish this stuffed dosa both as a snack and at meal time. The stuffing is an ideal way of introducing a combination of vegetables to your child's meal. The vegetables not only serve as an important source of nutrients like calcium, iron, vitamin a and fibre, but also give a feeling of fullness and satiate your child for longer periods of time. I've used sprouts here instead ofk soaked moong because sprouts are easier to digest and also sprouting increases the nutritive value of pulses.
