Grind it to a thick, yet spreadable chutney, with a little water.


Heat dosa pan, spread the dosa batter evenly over the hot tawa, once the dosa is half cooked, add a tblsp of this chutney.



Spread it using the back of a spoon around the dosa. Add butter if you want and spread it evenly too as it melts and you can add oil alternatively.


Add 2-3 tblsp of the prepared aloo masala and its your option either to spread it slightly and fold the dosa or keep the masala and roll the dosa. No need to flip the dosa.


Serve hot..



  • Make sure to grind the chutney spicy to make the dosa perfectly spicy. Otherwise it will be like the regular masala dosa.
  • Adding butter sure enhances the taste and browning, but make sure you restrict yourself with only one or two.

Happy Cooking 🙂 🙂
