Peas masala dosai | Green peas masala dosa | Breakfast recipe

Peas masala dosa is my recent favorite masala dosa.This masala dosa is very mild and it's doesnt have any over powering masala.In my school days,there was an idly shop(we used to call as medai kadai,dont know why the shop got that name) nearby my home, where they served mochai masala as a side dish for idly or dosa. It was very mild and taste deliciously. Even in my periappa's home, anna bought this masala alone ateast thrice a week and had it with homemade idly or dosai.
I used to make that mochai masala whenever i have fresh mochai,but here i used the same procedure instead of mochai i added peas. If you have fresh mochai, you can try the same with that too.My other masala dosai

  • If you have ginger garlic paste, add a tsp instead of minced garlic.
  • Cook the peas till it's very soft, so it's easily blends with the masala.
  • You can make this with fresh peas too, but i like dried peas masala more than fresh ones.
  • Cook the dosa on one side with lid covered to get crispy dosa.
