As per my requirements i will have to dissect eth header for all packets of my relevant protocol. So i was wondering if we have such functionality , i may write another plugin for eth and call it from my protocol plugin.

I'm not entirely sure what it is you're trying to do, but, yes dissectors/plugins can call other dissectors/plugins either directly (call_dissector()) or indirectly (caller registers a dissector table and then eventually calls dissector_try_uint() or similar and the callee registers itself for a value in that dissector table with dissector_add_uint() or similar).
