Interestingly, mumbai has mastered its own way of making mysore masala dosa, which is quite different from the way it is actually made in mysore! the innovation in mumbai’s streets is the addition of grated beetroot to the standard recipe of butter, chopped onions and potato bhaji! it’s amazing how the vendor mashes up the mixture and cuts up the dosa without tearing the dosa or spilling the filling!

I love the dosas we get roadside. And this is so much similar to that. The masala is so delicious and irresistible. It take a little while to make the masala but it is totally worth it. Mysore chutney gives an amazing flavour, but if you dont have that much time, you can skip it once in a while.
