Mysore Masala Dosa

The Mysore masala dosa is a favorite for people who like a spicy, cripy dosa with a very yummy potato and vegetable filling. The red chutney inside the Mysore masala dosa is what makes this dosa a favorite, ‘cos it’s spicy and oozing with flavor. The batter for the dosa traditionally has “poha” added to it with some lentils, but u could do the same with the regular dosa batter. There are a few things u must keep ready before making the actual “mysore masala dosa” itself. The mixed vegetable filling, the spicy red chutney and the usual chutneys and sambar to go with the dosa itself. Sounds big dosen’t it, but once u get started, its all falls into place. So lets start with the making of the mysore masala dosa.
