This dosa is sure to set your tongue on fire! We have cast some Chinese magic on dosa, the ever-popular South Indian snack, to make a unique and exciting dish.

You can think of this as a Chinese counterpart for the popular Masala Dosa, just that the usual potato masala is replaced with a fiery paneer chilli stuffing.

The stuffing has a spicy flavour and a wonderful texture, thanks to veggies like capsicum, cabbage, tomatoes, and more. It is important to use tomato ketchup in the stuffing because it balances the spiciness of the chillies.

Tips to make perfect paneer chilly dosa


    What are Dosas?

    1. Simply put, the Dosa is a pancake. One of the most popular snacks in all of South India, over time it has become popular all over the country and globally too. Dosa is made by spreading a batter on a hot griddle and cooking it with a little oil, or sometimes even no oil, till it turns golden brown and crisp. While most people use a non-stick tava these days, you can also opt for a traditional iron tava, which will enhance the taste as well as give you a nutrient boost. The basic Dosa batter is made of rice and urad dal. The ingredients are soaked, ground into a fine batter and allowed to ferment for 8-10 hours. The Dosa can be enhanced by topping the dosa with spice powders like the Idli Milagai Podi or other ingredients like roasted coconut, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, etc., while it is still cooking. 
    2. Slight variations in the batter or cooking procedure yield marvelously different results. Take for example the famous Benne Dosa of Karnataka. A little puffed rice is used while making the batter, the dosa is cooked with butter, and only on one side without flipping. You get a spongy dosa with one side that is absolutely crisp and golden-red. The aroma of butter simply kills your will, and makes you succumb to the temptation! 
    3. There are also dosas made with other combinations of cereals and lentils such as the PesarattuMoong Dal Dosa or Adai Dosa. The Neer Dosa of Karnataka is a lesser-known gem, which is definitely worth trying. You can make dosas with a mix of different grains like brown rice, nachni, sanwa, and so on. Instant dosas like Rava DosaRice Rava DosaInstant Oats Dosa and Buckwheat Dosa can be made in a jiffy by simply mixing readymade ingredients into a batter that is ready to cook. You do not have to ferment these batters. So, they are just perfect for hurried mornings, when you have not planned for breakfast the previous night. 
    4. Dosas are made even more exciting by stuffing them with awesome fillings. The most classic example of this is the Mysore Masala Dosa, which is lined with chutney and packed with potato bhaji. You can be creative with the stuffing, and throw in just about anything you want, from paneer to spinach. Try the Stuffed Sprouts Dosa and Stuffed Wheat Dosa. Delight your kids with the Stuffed Dosa Cones or Chocolate Dosa when they come home from school! 
    5. Dosas are usually served with Sambar and one or more chutneys. If the dosa itself is elaborate and spicy, go for a mellow chutney like Coconut Chutney. If it’s a plain dosa, go for something peppier like the Tomato Chutney or Coriander Chutney.  A very versatile category of snacks, Dosas can be made with varied ingredients, in varied forms and to suit anybody’s individual preferences.
