Masala dosa is my husband’s favourite. I made it on Valentine's day for breakfast. My gift to him :-) . My hobby is to watch cookery shows and I saw in one show , she smeared chutney on the dosa. I tried , it came out so well. I served with tomato chutney and garlic flavoured coconut chutney. Everybody loved it. I took the photo in a hurry, it was not so impressive, kindly bear with that.

Tomato Chutney


Onion – 1
Tomato – 1
Garlic - 6 to 7 pods
Red chili – 2
Salt to taste
Tamarind – a small piece
Oi, mustard seeds, urad dhall for tempering


Mix tamarind the required salt together and keep it aside for 2 to 3 minutes , so that it will become soft and blend easily.
Combine the onion, tomato, red chili, tamarind and grind to a smooth paste.
Heat oil in a pan pop up mustard seeds , urad dhall and add the mixture and saute until the raw smell goes. Chutney is ready

Potato Masala

Heat a tawa and make dosa and turn it and cook both the sides. Smear the chutney all over nicely. ( This is kid’s version so it has less.)

Spread the masala and roll it and serve.

My choice used to be plain dosa. But few restaurants make the best ever masala dosa with potato n dried peas curry. I used to make someone from the family to order that so that I can have a taste of it.thank you for shearing your post.
