Benne dosa or benne dose is a type of dosa which traces its origin from the city of Davangere in Karnataka, India. The term "benne dosa" in English language simply corresponds to butter dosa. It is prepared by addition of generous amount of butter while preparing the normal dosa, and accompanied by coconut chutney. It is similar to masala dosa or set dosa but smaller in size, made out of rice batter and much more butter. It is served with liberal helpings of butter sprinkled on it. This makes the dish enticing in both flavour and aroma.[1][2][3][4]

Some of the variants of the benne dosa:

  • Benne khali dosa
  • Benne open dosa
  • Benne masala dosa

Today, benne dosa is almost synonymous with the city of Davangere, (Kaddapa bene dosa) and has found its own well-deserved place in the menu cards of all well-known restaurants in Karnataka. It has also found its distinct place in the cuisine of the Indian diaspora abroad. There are also restaurants in Singapore and USA that serve this specialty dish of Davangere.[5][6][7]
