Our very own perfect breakfast option- the dosa is adored by not just South Indians but by people all over the world. The Keto-friendly rendition of the same replaces the rice flour for the batter with paneer and grated coconut in it. It is specially created for all south Indian and vegetarian keto dieters out there.
Preparing a smooth low carb keto-friendly dosa is quite impossible unless you utilise almond flour or coconut flour or eggs. Also, if you’re a vegetarian or you don’t like eggs, you can change to an alternative like paneer (cottage cheese). Similarly, if you’re a non-vegetarian, you can include both eggs and paneer to make your keto dosa.
Make this egg-free paneer dosa by using paneer with no flour added and you can also utilise cheese and almond flour/coconut flour as per your taste and choices.
whereas it can be quite tough to use scrambled paneer as it won’t give a proper shape to your dosa. The secret is in cooking the paneer in the right way. when it is about the technique which is on very low flame and being really patient. So it takes 15-20 minutes to make the dosa but the final outcome is so soft and goes very well with chutneys. Also, you can pair your keto coconut chutney with your paneer dosa.
- 200g paneer
- ½ cup- grated coconut
- Salt to taste
- ½ tsp cumin seeds

- Use 1/3 rd of the dense batter and using a wet hand spread it to form a thick dosa.
- Affix ghee on the sides and give it 5 minutes minimum before using a dosa-turner.
