Dosa! Learn how to make this traditional Indian pancake.

Originating in the southern part of India, Dosa is a tasty rice pancake that’s commonly eaten for breakfast. It gives the ideal kickstart to your day as it has the right amount of carbs and protein, minus the saturated fats and sugars. The thin batter-based pancake is made from a fermented batter predominantly consisting of lentils and rice, filled with different ingredients.


The most popular Dosa are the Masala Dosa (Dosa with a potato filling), Rava Dosa (made using semolina), Mysore Masala Dosa (spicier Masala Dosa), Paneer Dosa (Dosa made with paneer which is a fresh cheese, Onion Rava Masala Dosa, Cheese Dosa, and Schezwan Dosa.


The Dosa is typically served hot and with accompaniments like coconut chutney, sambar, and different kinds of Indian pickles. They are a staple meal in South India and over the years became a popular dish even in North India, with many Udupi restaurants and street food stalls opening.

In New Zealand, Dosa is still a bit of a novelty, but that's about to be changed!
