Gobi Masala Dosa (Cauliflower Masala Dosa) - Restaurant Style


Gobi Masala Dosa Recipe

It is finally raining in Coimbatore too and we are totally loving it!! Though a bit late this time, it is pouring and the mornings are always cloudy and chill. And I feel like eating deep fried snacks all the time...blame it on the weather I say :)

Coming to todays recipe : Next to masala dosa I love gobi masala dosa the best esp the curry which makes it all the more tasty.When I saw this recipe I immediately bookmarked and finally made it few weeks back. I always struggle to click dosa varieties this time making dosa was a challenge too....Even the daily making dosa tests my patience when I make it esp for clicking ;) Haha But after 4 dosas I got the perfect golden brown dosa for the clicks as I wanted :)

      Cauliflower Masala Dosa Recipe


      We had the gobi dosa for breakfast and had the leftover gobi masala with rotis for dinner, it was a yummy combination. Try this for yourself and am sure you will not stop with one dosa :)

      So what is your favourite stuffed dosa variety?



      Cauliflower Masala Dosa Recipe

      My Notes:
      • I dont have tandoori masala powder so went ahead with garam masala powder. But I recommend adding it as it gives a nice flavour to the masala.
      • Cut cauliflower into small florets for the masala to get blended well.
      • The orginal recipe calls for 3 tomatoes, I added only 2.
      • The cashewnut paste gives a rich restaurant taste to the masala so dont skip it.
      • If you prefer, you can also use ghee for making the dosa. Make thin crispy dosas.
      • The leftover masala goes well with rotis too.You can make the recipe with mushrooms too.

      26. I have never had gobhi masala dosa, sticking to the traditional masala dosa with aloo filling. This sounds and looks great. I love dosa, but have never made dosa batter at home. If I am lucky my south indian friend generally gives me some batter, so that I can make some homemade dosas. Love these!
