Masala Dosai | Potato Masala Dosai | Tamilnadu Masala Dosai

Masala Dosai/Potato masala dosa, a delicious and signature South Indian breakfast recipe. It's one of the popular breakfast/dinner items in restaurants and I have seen that the restaurant here in Canada and US serve this masala dosa for lunch menu or even in buffet. Crispy dosa stuffed with scrumptious potato filling along with sambar & chutney is simply a heaven on your breakfast platter !!! There are a lot of variations available in making the potato masala based on the region or restaurant, here i'm sharing the basic version of how we make them at our home.

Amma used to make these masala dosa on weekend mornings in our school days and it's one of my childhood breakfast. As I grew up eating masala dosa at home, I'm not fond of restaurant masala dosa honestly. In most of the restaurants, the stuffing is way more than what i used to eat at home. So whenever I order masala dosa at a restaurant, most of the potato stuffing remains untouched on my platter that makes me avoid ordering masala at restaurants. Yeah, I'm too picky when it comes to food not only with taste and aroma, how much of chutney or stuffing and all are very important to me. 

Ok, coming to today's recipe, it's a basic version of masala dosa that I grew up eating without any chutney spread or spice powder on top. If you're looking for Mysore style masala dosa with hot chutney spread, check out this recipe. Now  let's check out how to make delicious masala dosa.
