Mysore Masala Dosa- a filling tiffin….

When we were in Bangalore, on lazy weekends our breakfast used to be from hotels and mine and my daughter’s preference would be masala dosa and I once had this Mysore masala dosa and that became my favorite.

There is a lot of difference between plain masala dosa and mysore masala dosa. Right from the batter to the filling inside the dosa. I loved the red chilli garlic chutney that is spread on the dosa.
After coming here, it became difficult to get our desired masala dosas, so thought of making this at home and prepared this for a Sunday breakfast. If every ingredients are kept handy, then we can make this within minutes. I prepared the red chili, garlic chutney the day before, boiled the potatoes before hand and on the day of making this dosa, it was easy to prepare.

In this Mysore masala dosa , the dosa will be crisp from outside and soft like sponge texture inside and have a nice golden brown color too. Just try this out and you will love them.
