Masala Dosai | Potato Masala Dosai | Tamilnadu Masala Dosai

Masala Dosai/Potato masala dosa is one of the signature dish of South Indian Delicacy. It is a dosa stuffed with delicious potato masala inside and it's the popular dosa among the other varieties of dosa in India and outside the country too. There are lot of variation in making the potato masala, here i'm sharing the basic version, how we prepare in our home. 

To be honest, i dont like the masala dosa in restaurants. In all restaurants,the stuffing is more than enough for one dosa(atleast to me) and i always end up with lot of potato masala remaining in my plate. So here in the recipe, it yields  medium amount of potato masala for four dosa.
