Tuppa Dosa

Tuppa in Kannada, alias Ghee Dosa, is a delicious dosa, and the aroma of ghee while preparing will make your special one drool and tempted to devour the savory. This simple Dosa is a culinary delight and can be served with coconut chutney or red chilies and onion chutney. Since the batter for this Dosa uses more urad dal than usual dosas, the Tuppa Dosa also turns out soft and fluffy, which makes it doubly delightful. The reddish-brown hue and rich aroma of ghee and fenugreek make the Dosa a truly special treat for your guests and loved ones.
