Cucumber And Peas Dosa

Dosas are a very popular breakfast (or indeed anytime) dish. Originally from South India, they are now available in almost every nook and corner of the country. This spread has spawned several variations of this humble dish.
I belong to a food group (not vegan, but vegetarian) that is immensely popular with over 23K members and growing every day. I enjoy the group for the interaction with some wonderful home chefs. And if I find an interesting recipe, I immediately modify it to conform to WFPB principles. This very interesting recipe, by Desilicious Kitchen, is one such recipe that I really enjoyed. They kindly gave me permission to post this in my blog.
