These flavourful and light dosas are an example of “taste from waste”. The white part of watermelon peel, which is generally discarded, is known to possess good flavour and fibre. This is a welcome addition to your collection of favourite dosa recipes. There is very little oil used, giving it an added advantage.
Do not discard the juice that oozes out while grating the peel. Use the thinnest variety (paper/nylon) of poha in this recipe. If this is not available, use ½ the quantity of thicker variety of poha.
