I’m here today with one more variety of dosay/dosa which we tasted during our last visit to Bengaluru, Open butter pudi masala dosay/dosa. The masala ie…. the potato palya/subji, spicy powder and the butter on the top is arranged on the dosa openly when served, hence the name is Open pudi(spicy powder)masala dosay/dosa ! The difference between regular masala dosay/dosa and this particular masala dosay/dosa is, firstly onion is not used potato while making subji, and the second one is instead of applying onion chutney, different spice powder (dry) is prepared and sprinkled on the dosa/dosay….. and that definitely makes a huge difference in taste and look. I always use home made butter.

The Spice powder (chutney pudi) used here and the combination of  ingredients in the dosay/dosa batter is my own creation, though with the same ingredients, which we use for making chutney pudi or dosay/dosa batter.

This particular dosay/dosa is roasted only on one side, so the dosay/dosa batter needs to be perfect, to get that spongy, soft yet crispy dosay/dosa. Otherwise the dosay/dosa will become hard and fluffiness will be lost. This dosay/dosa is made little thicker than the regular dosay/dosa.

Recipe for Potato subji : Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan, add in 1/4 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tbsp chana dal, 1/2 tbsp urad dal, 1 green chilli, few curry leaves, 1/2 cup of chopped methi leaves(if using), 1/3 cup of boiled green Peas(if using),  boiled and mashed potato (2 big), salt to taste, mix everything well and remove from the fire.
