  1. Place the flours, bicarbonate of soda, salt and mustard seeds in a bowl and gradually whisk in 300ml water until you have a loose batter. Leave to stand. Mix together the ingredients for the raita and then the slaw and set aside.
  2. Place the sweet potato and leeks into a steamer or a colander over a pan of boiling water and steam for 8–10 minutes or until the sweet potato is tender.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan and cook the ginger, chilli and spring onions for 2–3 minutes before stirring in the turmeric and cooking for a further minute. Add the cooked sweet potato and leeks and roughly mash with a fork. Stir in the chopped coriander. Set the mixture aside to keep warm while you cook the dosas.
  4. Mist a large non-stick frying pan with cooking spray and add a ladleful of the batter, swirling the pan to cover it completely. Cook until the edges start to curl and come away from the pan.
  5. Slide from the pan and spread a quarter of the sweet potato mixture over the pancake, then roll it up to enclose the filling. Keep warm while you cook and prepare the remaining ingredients in the same way to make four dosas. Serve with the raita and the slaw.
