Benne Dosa is an evergreen specialty of Karnataka, very famous in the heritage eateries of cities like Bangalore. Till date, you can walk into quaint, century-old eateries in the city where you will be greeted by dhoti-clad men carrying 20-30 Benne Dosas stacked along one arm, to serve to long queues of customers!
As the buttery, crisp dosas cook slowly in large iron griddles in the kitchen, the aroma of melting butter wafts along the wind and draws more customers to the already-overcrowded restaurant.
The Benne Dosa has an enticing texture, which is both crisp and spongy. To get this texture, a portion of puffed rice is included while making the batter of rice and urad. Plus, the dosas need to be cooked slowly on a medium flame.
Try this superb recipe in your own kitchen, and enjoy it for breakfast . For an authentic touch, serve it with a dollop of butter placed inside the folded dosa or on top of it.
You can also try other interesting dosas like the Rice Rava Dosa or Schezwan Cheese Dosa .
