Masala Dosa

Masala Dosa is a very popular South Indian dish. It is basically a Dosa filled with potato veggie in the center. It goes well with green chutney, tomato chutney and sambar. You can also have it without chutney and sambar.

It is a perfect dish for breakfast or tea time snacks. You can find it in almost all the restaurants here. We often make this dish at our house and is loved by every one.
