  • the toppings on the dosa like veggies, herbs can be of your choice.
  • you can choose any veggie your kids or family likes and add on the dosa. this time i only had onions & tomatoes, so just added that. at times i just add some grated cheese and herbs on the dosa. some times i add some grated carrots, capsicum, tomatoes and onions.
  • the spices and herbs can also be of your choice. even a pizza sauce or schezwan sauce can be added.
  • you can even just make the dosa with cheese and no spices or herbs.
  • for cheese, you can use processed cheese or mozzarella cheese. i find that cheddar cheese becomes oily and greasy, so i do not add it.

usually i serve cheese dosa with coconut chutney or sambar. though you can serve with even onion chutney or tomato chutney.
