Dosa needs no introduction , there are lot many varieties of Dosa . Few varieties are thin crepes, few are like pancakes and other few are crispy and flaky ,however you eat it tastes delicious. Though procedure remains almost same for all dosa varieties , ingredients and ratios varies slightly. Masala Dosa batter is different from Set Dosa , Soft regular Dosa and vegetable Dosa . If you are not from / in South India then you may not be aware of all these differences. As it’s only Masala Dosa , with different stuffings is seen in most of street food stalls and restaurants .

Menthe Dosa is a soft dosa , you can either make it small and thick like set dosa or spread like Masala Dosa. It tastes delicious either the way . I generally make a lentils based curry along with chutney to serve with this Dosa , just to balance the protein quotient in my meal . I do this because this Dosa has no lentil /pulses added to make the batter . Likewise , I balance the nutrition in my everyday eating. Other Dosa recipes which are regular at home are : Masala Dosa , Set Dosa , Adai , Neer Dosa and Pesarattu| green gram Dosa.
