About this Recipe
Masala dosa is a variation of the popular South Indian dosa, which originated in Karnatakas Tuluva Udupi cuisine. Its made with rice, lentils, potatoes, fenugreek, ghee, and curry leaves and comes with chutneys and sambar. It is popular in South India, but it is also available in the rest of the country and abroad. The preparation of
masala dosa varies from city to city in South India.
Paneer, also known as ponir or Indian cottage cheese, is a fresh acid- set cheese made from cow or buffalo milk that is popular in the Indian subcontinent (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka). It is a soft, non-melting cheese made by curdling milk with a fruit or vegetable-derived acid, such as lemon
juice. Chena is the acid-set form (curd) before pressing.
Ingredients for Paneer Masala Dosa :
Paneer has a mild, milky flavour and a dense crumbly texture that complements the strong spicy flavours found in many traditional Indian dishes. Because it does not melt like other cheeses, chunks of it can be stirred into soups or curries and stay whole.
