Mysore Masala Dosa Recipe

This Dosa is slightly varied from the Masala Dosa that I posted yesterday.It has a spicy red chutney applied all over the dosa…This taste good…but it will be a little spicier.For all spice lovers this is the one..

Dosa and idlis are a staple of southindian meal.They are a lifesaver when you have no time to make anything.They are served with chutney or sambar..But this dosa is a special one,they have a spicy masala inside them,so they don’t need any side dish with them.Taste great hot.
