  • Taste of Masala dosa depends on  Red chutney.I made the Red chutney with Hot & Spicy. if you want less spiciness, reduce the no of Red chillies. 
  • Adding Ginger gives nice flavour to Masala.
  • Make the masala, as little thick curry,than dry, for good Taste.
  • Adding butter is optional, if you want nice crispy browning texture, add butter.
  • Coconut Chutney is an apt combination for this Dosa.
