Mysore Masala Dosha




Till now I havent met anyone who doesnt love masala dosha. A crispy masala dosha paired with some coconut chutney and sambar is something I never get bored of ,be it at home or at restaurant.
I got this recipe for a restaurat style masala dosha from my cousin sister and I have been hooked onto this ever since.If u follow the recipe and tips as it is ,I cant see any reason for this to go wrong...Mysore masasla dosha is nothing but  usual masala dosha with a  tomato chutney spread on it so its like a cherry on top of cake ! But I am warning u if are going to take pictures of mysore masala dosha like I did, the tomato chutney will make the dosha a bit soggy,so if you are looking for a crispy dosha eat as soon as u make it :)

6 Heat a non stick pan ,rub some oil/ghee on the pan and pour one laddle of batter and spread it with the laddle as thin as possible.Cook it covered for 1-2 minutes.When the bottom of the dosha is brown and crisp take the lid off  , spread some ghee , tomato chutney,potato bhaji and roll it.Serve hot with Sambar and coconut chutney.
