Set Dosa is a speciality from Karnataka . This Dosa variety is different from regular Dosa in texture. Set Dosa is more soft , spongy , light and fluffier when compared with regular Dosa. As this Dosa is smaller in size , a set of 2-3 Dosa’s are served , hence the name Set Dosa. It is also referred as Khali/Sada Dosa in few food joints as it is not filled with potato stuffing at the centre. Vegetable Saagu is served instead of Sambar along with this Set Dosa.

As I mention everywhere , Dosa is a Complete Protein .Because it is a combination of Lentils and Cereals. For all those who over think about their diet and try to add protein in every meal , then do consider DOSA / IDLI also. Though most of the ingredients used in making Dosa are same , variations in measurements, fermentation yields different taste/ texture dosa.

Dosa is one of the most common Breakfast in any South Indian house. I’m no where different , one variety of Dosa is must per week at home. Other Varieties of Dosa which are regular at home are Adai , Oats Dosa , Green Gram Dosa , Fenugreek Seeds Dosa and Gobi Masala Dosa .
