I have had this dosa many times in Mumbai and it is worth trying for dosa as well as pav bhaji lovers.

Basically, if you have leftover pav bhaji or leftover idli-dosa batter then you can make this dosa and you will get to taste pav bhaji as well as dosa.

This pav bhaji dosa is not dry so you don’t need to have it with chutney. So you can easily skip chutney and have it with some dry chutney powder like the idli podi.

How to make Mumbai pav bhaji dosa

1. On a non stick pan spread the dosa batter and let it cook. Sprinkle some oil on the sides and on the top.
