Mysore Masals Dosas

Todays recipe is a all time favorite in my household- Mysore Masala Dosa : a staple food in South India. I haven't came across a single Indian who doesn't like dosas. They delicious and can be enjoyed any time of the day and happens to be famous among all race too. Restaurants world wide have these Indian crepes on their menu.

Dosa batter tends to find its way around my kitchen 24 hours day. Im lost without them. Its like a soul food for us and many can wonder how I can make and eat dosa everyday for a long time and still not be bored with it. It's probably I eat a lots of dosa growing up as my dad owns a Indian restaurant back in my hometown. I alway have dosa batter in my fridge  ready to whip up fresh dosa on demand or for the unexpected guests. I own a wet grinder  and it's run about twice a week to keep the batter supply ongoing and fresh, I always make riddles as soon as the batter ferments and then dilutes the batter further to make dosa for the next few days. For a change my hubby want to have Mysore Masala dosa for dinner instead of the normal ones. There's a huge versions in preparing Mysore Masala dosa and the following one is welled like my family accordingly to our taste bud. Hope all those who happens to see the recipe will try them out and give me your verdict on its taste. Have a great weekend and I will back with another recipe from my kitchen to yours soon.
