Mysore Dosa

Mysore Dosa is a famous traditional Karnataka Style. I was introduced to this dosa through my MIL who was there at Karnataka for long period. Most of the restaurants in Karnataka serve Mysore Masala Dosa. I wanted to try out this recipe without Potato Masala for dinner. I asked for recipe from my MIL and prepared at home. I have mentioned the Masala preparation part in the recipe below. Check out my website for preparation of dosa batter


Preparation Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 5 mins/dosa | Serves: 2-3

To Roast and Grind:

  • Coriander Seeds – 2 tsp
