Cauliflower masala dosa | Gobi Masala dosa

In my school days, i was fascinating about masala dosas. My mom made masala dosa as breakfast usually on our holidays. I love that dosa a lot, but i dont like masala dosa from hotel. To me, in hotel, masala in the  dosa are over i always prefer homemade masala dosas.

This cauliflower masala dosa is one of the dish i was introduced after marriage. First i tasted this dosa in one of the indian hotel in Denver. I liked it a lot and it's different from our regular masala dosa. So immediately i searched for the recipe and tried it. Now it's one of our regular breakfast menu.Now let see the procedure.


Cauliflower - 1/2 cup(florets)
Onion -1(small)
Tomato -1(small)
Ginger - 1/2 tsp(grated)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chili powder -1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Cashew nuts - 5 nos
Coriander leaves - few
Salt - to taste
Oil- 1/2 tsp
Dosa batter


Soak cashew for 15 mins. Put the cauliflower into hot water until use. Cut the onions & tomato into small pieces.

Heat the pan with oil, add the onions , saute it until it become translucent and then add ginger and tomatoes and saute it well, till the tomatoes become mushy.

Then add cauliflower and all spices(turmeric,chili & coriander powder) and mix it well.

Now add water (just enough to immerse cauliflower) and salt . Cover the pan and cook the cauliflower.

Once the cauliflowers are cooked, grind the cashew nuts into fine paste and add it . Let it be in flame for few more mins until it all come together. Finally add coriander leaves and switch off the flame.

Now the cauliflower masala is ready. 

To make the dosa, heat the dosa pan,  pour the dosa batter in the pan, spread it in circular shape . Drizzle some oil over the edges and cook it on medium flame.

Once the dosa is well cooked, keep the cauliflower masala in the center and fold the dosa and remove it on the plate.

Tasty cauliflower masala dosa is ready.Serve it immediately. It tastes best when it's hot.


  • If you like more masala flavor, add 1/2 tsp of garam masala in addition to other spices.
  • you can use ginger garlic paste instead of grated ginger.
  • Even you can use this masala as side dish for chapathi/roti
  • This will make 3-4 masala dosa depends on the size of dosa and the amount of masala you want.
