Masala Dosa with coconut chutney/dip recipe|| simple and easy to make

Dosa is crisp from outside and have a perfect sour taste when munched into it. It can be plain or it can have a simple potato filling.

A properly made crisp and savory Dosa is wonderfully delicious, and fairly simple at home. The batter must be kept overnight to get a the correct texture and required sour tare. With a traditional spicy potato filling it makes a perfect vegetarian breakfast,lunch or dinner.
