Ghee Roast Dosa is one of the most popular varieties of dosa in South Indian restaurants. It has the rich aroma of ghee and a wonderful texture that is crisp and golden coloured on the outer side and slightly softer inside. A sprinkling of malgapodi gives this crisp dosa a yummy flavour too. This delectable dosa is usually served in the shape of a cone or a roll at restaurants.
