Soft and spongy, this sumptuous dish is perfect for breakfast A very popular offering in South Indian restaurants, Set Dosa is a snack of fluffy, melt-in-the-mouth dosas, which are named so because they are usually served in pairs.

These comforting and satiating dosas are quite a contrast to the usual image of crisp, golden dosas but they are perfect to have with chutney and sambhar or spicier accompaniments like kadala (chickpea) curry, vada curry or saagu.
