Masala dosa / Sada dosa

Hello dear readers! Today I will share  a new dosa recipe. Last week my sister Shanta Nayak had given me the dosa batter. It came out so good I had to share the recipe in the space. My children love crispy dosas and this recipe was just perfect. When I asked her the recipe she told me she tried it from vegrecipesofindia blog. This batter is of Masala dosa but I made schezwan and cheese dosa.  Dosa’s are a staple of g.s.b’s, especially  Mangaloreans.
