Dosa Filling/Stuffing

This recipe is basically aloo masala filled in Dosa. There are several kinds of Dosa stuffing can be prepared. Potato(Aloo) masala is very populare stuffing but I sometimes, use left over pav bhaji curry, chhole or even any kind of signature stuffing can be prepared. I also prepare spring dosa with crushed vegetables such as cabbage, carrot, cauliflower. So basically, you can come up with your own ideas for preparing different kind of stuffings. And this aloo masala can be eaten with roti or puris as well.

Dosa filling could be your favorite one. Play around with your own fillings. I mostly make Potato subji for filling but to give it a twist sometimes, I use left over pavbhaji as well. I also make spring sabji with cauliflower, cabage and capcicums for filling. So enjoy with chutneys, raitas and pickle even...
