Egg Dosa or Egg Rice Crepes

Dosa stuffed with egg masala, certainly a vegetarian delicacy…

Dosa is one of the popular breakfast dishes in South India. Making dosa batter is quite a breeze, you just have to soak urad dal and rice (1:2 ratio) and grind it to a thick batter. After it has fermented by keeping the batter overnight, you could start making dosas just like you make crepes. The batter can be stored in the refrigerator for a week or so. Usually, dosa which looks like a crepe is served with sambar or chutney. Yet another common way of serving dosa is by spreading potato masala over it and folding it, now this is called Masala dosa.

After a long time I made dosa a few weeks ago. I didn’t want to serve it with sambar, chutney nor as masala dosa. Instead, I served as egg dosa by spreading egg masala over the dosa and folded it. It was different and tasted great.
