Mudakathan Keerai Dosai is my MIL’s signature dish and it is liked by everybody at our home including kids. Mudakathan keerai ( Cardiospermum halicababum ) is a special variety of herb ( greens ) commonly seen in villages. This creeper has amazing health benefits & nutritional facts. It is very helpful in curing joint / knee pain , for treating Gout, rheumatoid arthritis, skin diseases, cough, nervous disorder, piles, dysentery, diarrhea etc. This greens is slightly bitter in taste, but the bitterness will reduce on cooking. This keerai can be made to ground paste and mixed well with common dosa batter also and crispy dosai's can be prepared. This goes well with any chutney of your choice. Try this healthy crispy delights and I am sure it’ll be your favorite too !
