Mysore masala dosai

Masala dosai is all time favorite for most of us. Most of us have had masala dosai in hotel in Tamil nadu. I was never fond of masala dosai to this extent. We stayed in Bangalore.Whenever my hubby wanted breakfast from hotel or Resto. He wanted masala dosai. Its called mysore masala dosai. One dosai is sufficient , our stomach would be full. They accompany masala dosai with chutney. They also apply spicy chutney in between the dosai.
