Kari Dosai /Soya Kheema Dosa

Kari dosai is  popular in Madurai,in which minced mutton curry is topped and served with kurma.But I wanted to share a vegetarian version with minced soya curry.In the original recipe egg is also used on top of the minced mutton.Since its a vegetarian version I didn't use it.Also the dosa needs to be on the thicker side and the minced meat/soya is topped and cooked.This dosa doesn't need any side dish,it tatses good as such.Off to the recipe...
