It is lunchtime. You head to your office canteen to grab a bite of your favourite dosa. When you look at the menu, you are faced with this- sada dosa, masala dosa, cheese dosa, paneer dosa. So many choices! You want to order a paneer dosa, but you are not sure how many calories that will add to your plate. To help you out, we compared the calorie counts of different types of dosa so that you can make an informed choice.

It is true that dosa is a healthy meal option, but no one restricts to just one. Also, varieties such as masala dosa contain a lot of oil which ups their calorie count. Dosas are usually served with coconut chutney which ups the total calorie count. So even if it is generally a healthier meal option, a plate of dosa can cause much harm if the quantity and kind of oil used and coconut chutney or other accompaniments served with it have too many calories in them. You could add spinach, carrot, paneer, tofu, oats, flaxseeds into the batter along with the rice and dalto make the dosa more nutritious. If you are preparing dosa at home, try this a recipe for adai dosa. This recipe for low-calorie cucumber dosa can also be a very healthy option especially if you are watching your weight.
