Paper Roast Masala Dosai / Masala Crepe

My husband's favorite is Masala Dosai with groundnut chutney. My mom used to make this dosai when we were young. She used to stuff in all possible vegetables and give us. We would also eat it relishing the masaldosai. Today I made simple masal dosai with potato stuffing and groundnut chutney. Wanted to send this to Chitrali's Combo Meal event . This is a simple dish which we will all love.. Just the right combination of side dish makes it taste heavenly... I love crunchy and crispy dosa... Imagine nice yummy masala with it and a great tasting chutney????? Wooowww!!! It tasted great..


For dosa:
Dosa Batter - 3 cups

For Potato Masala:

Potato - 4
Onion - 1 finely chopped
Turmeric - 1 pinch
Red chilli powder - 1 tsps
Green chilli  - 1 slit into half
Salt - to taste
Curry Leaves - 8
Oil- 1 tbsps
Mustard - 1 tsps
Urad dhal - 1 tsps
Ginger - 1 tsps chopped

Preparation of Masala:

Cook potato and keep aside. In a pan , heat oil, add mustard and add urad dhal when mustard splutters. Addgreen chilli, ginger, asafoetida, curry leaves.

When golden brown, add onion and fry till it caramelizes. Now add turmeric, red chilli powder and potato. Fry for a min and add salt. Mix everything well and fry for about 3 mins in medium heat.

When everything mixes well remove from heat.

Ground Nut Chutney:

Roasted Groundnuts - 1 cup (with or without skin. both works fine)

Salt - to taste
Tamarind - Small lime size
Asafoetida - a pinch
Oil- 1 tbsps
Mustard-1 tsps
Urad dhal - 1 tsps
Curry leaves- 6-8
Red chilli - 2


Grind all the above said ingredients into a fine paste with water. You can dilute by adding more water as per requirement.

Season with mustard curry leaves asafoetida and uradh dhal fried in oil. 

For detailed recipe check groundnut/peanut chutney

Masala Dosa:

Heat the pan. When hot enough, take one laddle full of dosa batter and pour it on the center of the pan. Spread it in a circular motion similar to crepe. Drizzle oil around the dosa/crepe

Wait for a 2 mins and turn it to the other side. The base would turn golden brown.

After a minute turn it back and spread the potato filling along the dosa in the center.

Now fold one side of the dosa as shown and then another fold.

Crunchy Masala Dosai is ready.. tastes yummm when you have it with chutney... 

Sending this to Chaitali's Combo meal
