Masala Dosa

Masala dosa is a breakfast or dinner item which is very popular in South India.A crispy dosa filled with potato curry served along with chutney and sambhar.I made this dosa for dinner yesterday and had it with sambhar.Here goes the yummy and tasty recipe..


Idly or dosa batter as needed
Potato 2nos.
Green chilly(chopped)5nos.
Mustard seeds1tsp
Urad dhal2tsp
Channa dhal1tbs
Turmeric powder1/2tsp
Asafoetidaa pinch
Curry leaves2sprigs
Coriander leaves(chopped)to garnish
Oilas needed
Saltto taste


                    Boil the potatoes, mash it well and keep aside.Heat a pan with oil and season it with mustard seeds,urad dhal,channa dhal and cashews(I didn't use).Add in onion,green chillies,asafoetida ,curry leaves and saute it till it becomes soft.

Now add the mashed potatoes ,turmeric powder and salt.Mix it well and cook it for a minute.Turn off the stove.The filling is ready.

To make dosa,keep a dosa pan on the stove, once it becomes hot enough pour a ladle full of batter and spread it as thin as possible.

Drizzle a spoon of oil and allow it to cook till it becomes crisp(no need to flip).Keep the potato masala in the center of the dosa and fold it.

Enjoy it straight from the pan with the chutney and sambhar.

  • Using  flat base ladle helps easy to spread the dosa thin.
  • Cooking the dosa in a medium flame gives nice brown color to the dosa.
  • Place the masala in the dosa, after the dosa is completely cooked .
  • Finely chopped raw onions can be sprinkled on the masala.
