A dosa is a culinary delight that originated in the Southern regions of India. It’s made from talcum-powdery batter, which gives it its signature thin and crispy texture. Dosa is high in carbohydrates-84% to be exact –and contains no added sugars or saturated fats since there are none used during preparation. This makes for an excellent breakfast option as they provide you with energy while not contributing much fat to your diet! One homemade plain dosa without oil has around 112 calories; this includes 84 grams of carbohydrate and 16 grams of protein – making them perfect after a workout session because their carbs will restore lost glycogen levels but won’t lead to excess weight gain like traditional fast food options might do.
