Sharkara/ Jaggery Dosa

This dosa was one of my favorite snacks as a kid. Mom used to make this often for us and she would make it in different shapes, flowers for me and animals for my brother, we used to gulp it down happily. I still make this once in a while, when I need to fix us a quick snack. Sending this to 'CFK:Evening Snacks' hosted by Divya of Dil Se, event started by Sharmi of Neivedyam.



Ingredients:
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup grated jaggery
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
water
ghee

Method:
Take the jaggery in a bowl, add some water and microwave on high for 30-40secs. Mix well till the jaggery dissolves.
Add the flour and cardamom powder and enough water to make a smooth batter. The batter should not be very thick.
Heat a griddle and smear with some ghee. Pour a ladle of batter and spread a little. Top with a few drops of ghee. Cook till golden on both sides.
Serve hot.
