Basil Pesto Dosa

Cooks in: 20 Minutes Serves: 4 People

Sweet basil belongs to our holy Thulsi family and it has as many health benefits as our native plant. Today Thulsi Vivah is celebrated and I am sharing a fusion dosa recipe using millets and basil. Basil helps to detoxify liver, a great stress buster, helps to maintain sugar levels, fights cancer and has anti bacterial properties. Pesto is made out of basil and is used in many recipes.

Garlic is optional. I didn't add. This can be stored in the fridge for a few days and by deep freezing can be stored for a couple of months.
