Mysore Masala Dosa

Dosa and idlis are a staple of South Indian meal. They are a lifesaver when you have no time to make anything. It is served with chutney or sambar.

About Mysore Masala Dosa

Mysore Masala dosa is one of famous South Indian breakfast cuisine which is originated from  Thuluva Udupi or Mangalorean cuisine of Karnataka.

The Mysore Masala Dosa slightly differs from other varieties. It is thin and roasted crispy brown outside and filled inside with signature spicy Potato mixture. Finally it is topped with spicy red garlic chutney outside. 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.

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.

For making mysore masala dosa a special dosa batter is made which includes split chana dal, urad dal, raw rice, idli rice and poha. Once the batter is fermented a pinch of sugar is added in the batter which provides the crispy golden brown colour to the dosa.

But I use my regular everyday dosa batter. You can use store bought dosa batter as well. If you are struggling to get golden colour you can add a pinch of sugar to the dosa batter.

Using a cast iron dosa pan to cook dosa helps with the golden brown colour. Make sure you serve mysore masala dosa hot with a dollop of butter.

Mysore Masala Dosa (Potato Masala) Ingredients

Onions – thinly sliced onions is used in making aloo masala.

Potatoes – whole potatoes are cooked, skins are peeled and mashed roughly which is used in potato masala.

Green Chillies – finely chopped green chillies adds the spiciness to the masala.

Ginger & Garlic – You can add chopped ginger and garlic, but I used ginger garlic paste.

Tempering – split chana dal, urad dal, mustard seeds, curry leaves and asafoetida are basic spices.

Turmeric – turmeric powder is added for the yellow colour the masala needs.

Red Chutney Ingredients

Spicy red chutney is spread over the dosa before adding the potato masala. This makes mysore masala dosa unique from regular masala dosa.

Split Chana dal – one of the main ingredient used for the chutney. Instead of split chana dal you can use roasted gram dal also known as pottu kadalai or fried gram dal.

Onion – sliced onion is sauted with garlic and lentil which adds aroma.

Garlic – whole peeled garlic adds the aroma.

Red Chillies – Byadgi chilli or Kashmiri Red Chillies can be used for nice aroma and colour.

Tamarind & Salt – tamarind paste can be used instead of whole tamarind.
