Tuppa in Kannada means ghee, and that makes the highlight of this recipe obvious! This dosa is a special one, which is often made when there are guests. You can actually smell the ghee from outside the house, and it will make you drool!
Since the batter for this dosa uses more urad than usual dosas, the Tuppa Dosa also turns out soft and fluffy, which makes it doubly delightful.
The reddish brown hue, and rich aroma of ghee and fenugreek make this dosa a truly special culinary treat! Enjoy it hot off the tava with sambhar and chutney.

- Repeat with the remaining batter to make 14 more dosas.
- Serve immediately with sambhar and coconut chutney.
