jini dosa recipe | Mumbai street food jini dosa | mini cheese and veg dosa | with 20 amazing images

Jini dosa is a popular Mumbai street food that originated from Ghatkopar area in Mumbai. Jini means small in Gujarati. Hence we have the dosa called Mumbai street food jini dosa.

Buttery and cheesy Jini Dosa is the Mumbai roadside vendor’s answer to pizza! Dosas cooked in butter are topped with a succulent and spicy mixture of veggies, which is also cooked in butter!

Mumbai street food jini dosa is then garnished with loads of cheese and cooked for a few more minutes till the cheese melts and appetizingly coats the veggie topping.

I would like to share with you some tips to make the perfect jini dosa recipe. 1. To get crispier dosas, you can add some rice flour to the batter and mix well. 2. The dosa batter should be at room temperature always. 3. When you pour the batter, the tava should not be very hot or else you won’t be able to spread the dosa nicely so, sprinkle water to lower the temperature of the tava and wipe the water with a cloth.

Slice mini cheese and veg dosa with a pizza cutter and share it with your friends – we assure you, it will make your day. While the jini dosa is self-sufficiently tasty, you can also enjoy it with chutney and sambhar.

Have a go at other Mumbai roadside specialties like the Misal and Pani Puri.

For making perfect dosa :

  1. To get crispier dosas, you can add some rice flour to the batter and mix well.
  2. The dosa batter should be at room temperature always. So if you have stored the batter in the refrigerator, remove it and keep outside at least half an hour before making the dosas.

  4. You can even make dosa batter at home, refer our recipe to learn homemade dosa batter recipe.
  5. Also, before making the dosas, season the tava. Grease the tava uniformly with very little oil or butter. Now sprinkle the water and wipe it off. The fat layer will form a protective layer which will prevent the dosa from sticking to the tava.
  6. If you are finding it difficult to scrape out the dosa from the pan once it's ready, you can avoid it, by rubbing some raw onion to the pan before pouring the batter. This gives a non-sticky effect to the pan!
