Mysore Masala Dosa

Dear Friends,

Dosa is Indian crepes made with rice and urad dal batter and masala is the paste use for filling dosa. Dosa are made with many different kinds of filling. This one is called Mysore masala dosa. It is one of my favourite. This dosa is available on the street corner in India. They spread dosa batter on a hot flat pan, top with all the vegetables and add butter, let it cook and serve with sambar and chutney. I have lots of fond memory of it…we use to eat this dosa on the streets of Mumbai. This is so delicious but it is also heathy. There are lots of vegetables added to make masala. It is colourful and full of flavours. This recipe serves 4-5 people.
