Masala Dosa - Dosa with Potato Filling - Dosa recipes - breakfast, Dinner recipes

Masala Dosa is one of the most famous South Indian Dish esp for breakfast. I had this in my list for quite some time however I seldom do masala dosa as our family is not big fan of potato. During our last week holiday trip during our visit to restaurant to my surprise my son asked for masala dosa. So I was think why not do it at home also. So when we returned first thing I did is to try masala dosa at home. If you have left over masala you can do a sandwich with it. So here you go with the post
