Introduction

Dear Readers,

Plain Dosa South indian Tamilnadu or Madras style recipe is one of my favorite recipe. Its fast and easy to cook. This page would talk only about how to make plain dosa. How to prepare dosa batter is not included in this page.

This plain dosa is a main dish which could be used along with side dishes like Tomato Chutney, Pudina Chutney, Coconut Chutney or any other chutney varieties or with Idli milagai podi.

More crispy the dosa is, your family members or friends would love it the most.

Try it and enjoy it.
