Masala Dosa is a popular dish from South India, which is found in menu of many restaurants and is found in many countries too . It is made by stuffing dosa (a thin crepe made from fermented rice and lentil batter) with a mixture made from potato, onion, curry leaves, chili, mustard seeds and spices. It is then served hot with a bowl of sambhar (lentil soup) and coconut chutney. It is a complete food and can be enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner.
South Indian food – Idli, vada, Dosa, uttapam, upma, paniyaram are enjoyed by everyone at our house.
So I grind a big batch of the batter that can be used to make idli, dosa, utttapam or paniyaram.
I have already shared with you the detailed process with pictures of making batter for idli with idli rava earlier. I used the same batter to make idli, crispy dosa , uttapam or paniyaram. However you can use the ready made idli/dosa batter that is available readily in the market if you are short of time.
