Note : 

Do not use much water while grinding. Cook dosa on the medium and low flame.You can use ghee instead of oil while cooking dosas. You can use more jaggery if you like sweet. Not to use lots of coconut since the dosas turn soft and will not be able to remove  from the pan. You can use banana fruits instead of Palak leaves for Kids.( Better use less chilly if you use banana instead of Palak.).
Serves 4 to 5.
Time : 20 Minutes.
