Bobbarlu Dosa or Lobia Recipe is a healthy Dosa Recipe for Breakfast as it is rich in protiens, fibre and Vitamin B12. Also known as lobia in hindi, bobbarlu in telugu and lobia in english is called black eyed beans or Cowpea beans. Babberkaya is most common in telangana region usually available in early summers, you can buy and de-seed them but dry seeds are available through out the year in grocery stores. If fresh black eyed beans are not available then you can soak dry seeds overnight and use them in your recipes but fresh seeds taste much better.

I served this Lobia dosa with pudhina chutney. You can serve it with any chutney of your choice. The chutney need not be spicy, even a mildly flavoured one will also suits better because we add spices in the dosa batter itself.
