Banana Dosa, also known as Banana Pancake, is a delicious and easy-to-make recipe that can be served as a snack or dessert. This recipe is made using ripe bananas, rice flour, all-purpose flour, cardamom powder, sugar, raisins, cashews, and ghee. The bananas are mashed and mixed with the flours, sugar, and cardamom powder to get a thick batter. The raisins and cashews are added to the batter for extra flavor and crunch. The batter is then cooked on a griddle with ghee until it is golden brown on both sides. Banana Dosa can be served with maple syrup or honey as a sweet snack or topped with whipped cream or ice cream and berries for a more indulgent dessert. It can also be served as a tiffin with some chutney. For variations, brown sugar or jaggery can be used instead of sugar to add a different flavor to the recipe. This batter can also be used to make Paniyarams or Unniappam.
