Mumbai mysore masala dosa recipe – a Mumbai street food snack that I would so often have when studying and working in Bombay.

mysore masala dosa recipe mumbai street food

During the lunch breaks or after work, I would go to the dosa stalls nearby and I very well knew what to order. If I was very very hungry, I would ask for a Mumbai mysore masala dosa and if just hungry than a masala dosa and a veg sandwich from the sandwich guy. The size of the dosa was larger than what we make at home and used to be very filling.

So if you think this Mysore masala dosa is the one you get in South Indian restaurants, then you are mistaken. Yes… Its different… Don’t want to sound like the catch line of maggi sauce… But the dosa is different. You will see in the step by step post the difference clearly. So I will let the pics speak for themselves instead of writing the difference. You can also check this recipe of Mysore masala dosa.

Its Mumbai style... A city where the cuisine takes on local flavors and gets merged, innovated, deconstructed and what results is something so new yet delicious. There are so many types of dosa that one gets – hakka noodles dosa, Schezwan masala dosa, Jini dosa, Schezwan dosa and Pav bhaji dosa. I have had Hakka noodles dosa and pav bhaji dosa and they are truly yum.

You need to have dosa batter and potato sabzi before you proceed making this dish. Also works great with leftover dosa batter.

For the potato sabzi, please refer to the Masala dosa. you even add some boiled and mashed potatoes spiced with a bit of red chili powder, garam masala powder, turmeric powder and salt.

Sometimes I make a variation to this dosa by skipping the potato masala and just adding the veggies with the spice powders. This variation also tastes good.

Serve the Mumbai mysore masala dosa with some vegetable sambar and coconut chutney… And you have a satisfying and complete meal. I served the dosa with coconut garlic chutney.

The recipe is gluten-free as well as vegan if you add oil instead of butter or ghee. Thats what I like about South Indian food. They are healthy and so many of the recipes are vegan.

How to make Mumbai mysore masala dosa

1: first chop the veggies finely. If using carrots or beetroot, then grate them.

2: heat a tava or non-stick pan. Don’t smear oil. If you smear oil, the dosa does not spread evenly. Take a large spoon or ladle of dosa batter and spread it circularly on the pan, beginning from the center towards the circumference. Allow the dosa to cook for 1-2 minutes.
