Mudakathan Keerai Dosa / Balloon vine dosa

Mudakathan Keerai dosa

Mudakathan keerai (Balloon vine in English) is famous in Tamil Nadu for it's use in treating joint pain. My mom once made Mudakathan keerai dosa at home, but that time I didn't know about its medicinal benefits. It was just a dosai to me.

When my husband said, Mudakathan keerai has emerged itself in the farm after frequent rains, the name striked my mind and reminded me of the dosa my mom used to make. When I googled for its health benefits, I was surprised from the facts that it treats joint pain, arthiritis, dandruff, cold and cough. It also strengthens the bone. As my FIL has joint pain, thought of incorporating this keerai to our diet. My first attempt is this Mudakathan keerai dosa. I thought grinding keerai along with the soaked rice while making batter will leave a raw smell of keerai in dosa, but it didn't. Dosa came out with a new flavor. Everyone at home liked it especially my son was so happy to eat a green color dosa. He liked it very much.

I also made Mudakathan keerai rasam, it also tasted good. It tastes more like Thoothuvalai rasam. Will soon post the recipe of Mudakathan keerai rasam.
