Sandwich Dosa / Sandwich Masala Dosa

Today's recipe for the Cooking Carnival is a dosa with colorful filling resembles veggie sandwich.
I got the idea of making this sandwich dosa after seeing our BM buddies shared some sandwich recipes without bread.
So tried this dosa one day for evening snack for my son and he loved it.Immediately included this dosa in my list to share for this theme.
I mashed the potatoes and used it here also used some grated panner.One can replace the paneer with cheese and make it a cheesey dosa.The addition of mint chutney gives a very nice taste and this dosa tastes good as such.No need of any extra side dish for this one.But I serve it with coconut chuney and some sweet and spicy sauce.Off to the recipe...........

great idea man.. love it. I have tried only adding those chutneys and cheese together. filling them up with veggies makes it more healthy.

Apart from the cucumbers , it's similar to the roadside stalls here in mumbai which stuff everything from chow Mein to PAv bhaji to cheese and everything in between. These kind of dosas are very popular with the college going crowd here
