2 Cups of Idly/Dosa Batter
1 Cup of Mudakanthan Keerai/Balloon Vine leaves
1 Tsp of Cumin/Jeera
Salt as required


Wash the balloon vine leaves.
Grind the leaves with a tsp of jeera into nice paste.Add little water and grind it into smooth paste.
Add the grinded paste to the idly/dosa batter.Add salt.
Mix it well.If you find the batter to be little sticky then add some more idly batter and make it to a smooth batter.
Heat a Dosa pan and add a scoop of the green leaves batter on the hot dosa tava and make dosa
Cook the dosa on both the sides.Spray little oil on the dosa.
Serve it hot with Spicy tomato chutney or Spicy Kara Chutney


  • Instead of using dosa batter,you can also freshly grind raw rice,urad dhal along with the green leaves instead of mixing the green leaves mixture separately to the batter.
  • You can also add green chillies while grinding if you need the dosa to be more spicier.
