Masala dosa or Masale Dose is a variant of the popular South Indian food, Dosa.[1] It is made from rice, potato, methi, curry leaves and served with Chutneys and Sambar. Though it was only popular in South India,[2] it can be found almost in all other parts of the country,[3] and even outside the country now.[4][5] In South India preparation of masala dosa varies from city to city.[6] Masala Dosa was ranked number 4 on the list of '10 foods to try before you die', compiled by US newspaper The Huffington Post.[7]


The masala is prepared separately along with the chutney, dal and juice. Dosa is made at the end and then mixed with the masala.[8] It is served with chutney and Sambar.[9]
