Prepare Dosa batter. I have already shared the detailed recipe , checkout that for a perfect Batter everytime…

On a hot Non stick tava , spread dosa batter . Allow it to cook for few seconds. When you see dosa batter is getting firm , Spread the chutney using the back of a spoon around the dosa. Pour Butter/ Oil on sides of Dosa.

Add 2-3 tbsp of the prepared aloo masala ..

It’s your choice either to spread it slightly and fold the dosa or keep the masala and roll the dosa. No need to flip the dosa.

Just fold the dosa and 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 more butter /Oil sure enhances the taste and browning, but make sure you restrict yourself with only one or two dosa..

  1. Now that is delicious looking dosa, as I scroll through the pics, makes me hungry and tempted to eat one right now. I love the masala mixture that you made, I make it similar, not too thick or hard but with a bit of volume. The red chutney stole my heart .. one of my favourites and I can just lick it off the bowl as it is. Great share Ruchi!

  2. A few years back I ordered Mysore dosa in a restaurant here, and don’t know what he gave me but since then I never wanted to eat Mysore dosa! But after looking at your recipe I feel like having it again. I must make it myself though πŸ˜€ or I should visit you.
