cheese dosa recipe with idli-dosa batter. quite often when i make idli or dosa, i have surplus batter remaining with me. with the batter i make quite a number or recipes and some of them i have already posted on blog like – paniyaram, punugulu, mumbai style mysore masala dosa.

this cheese dosa is also one of the recipes i make. at times i just add some grated cheese and herbs on the dosa. at times i add some grated carrots, capsicum, tomatoes and onions. in fact you choose any veggie your kids or family likes and add on the dosa. this time i only had onions & tomatoes, so just added that. 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. cheese dosa is also a street food snack served in cities like mumbai.

this cheese dosa recipe works very well as an after school snack for kids or as a morning breakfast. all you need is some dosa batter and cheese. the toppings on the dosa like veggies, herbs can be of your choice. 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.
