Masala Dosa | Aloo Masala Dosa

Idli and dosas are a staple SouthIndian food that is a lifesaver when you have nothing else in the fridge and no time to cook (obviously, if you have the batter ready). 😀 They are the most popular SouthIndian meal which is now popular worldwide. Well, Dosa needs no introduction to any Indian. Right? You can find idli-dosa in any corner of the city, either in a restaurant or in a streetside food stall in India. 😀 Now that I have moved to the USA a year back I find idli-dosa easy to cook for weekend breakfast. 😀 And my weekdays morning are blissful as I already have the batter ready in the fridge. 🙂
Though there are many many and many versions of dosa you all must have heard but today I am going to share THE MOST FAMOUS and the most simple “Masala Dosa” recipe. This one is my and of course, my hubby’s all-time favorite dosa.
Generally, dosa is served with sambhar and coconut chutney/ tomato chutney or any other chutney. But this masala dosa is already filled with the spiced potato so this not really need a side dish but still who doesn’t love sambhar and chutney on the side? 😀
