Masala Dosa with Coconut Chutney

Dosas are a South Indian staple consisting of a rice and lentil crepe accompanied by sides, usually a couple of types of chutney. Masala dosa is a popular breakfast option in India, and it’s not hard to see why. The flavourful potato filling is just the thing to put a spring in your step first thing in the morning.


  • Asafetida is a gum from a varietal of giant fennel that has been dried and ground into a powder. When raw, it has an unpleasantly strong flavour and smell, yet when cooked it mellows and gives a garlicky essence to dishes.
  • Chana dal is the split kernel of a variety of chickpea known as desi or bengal gram. Ground up in the chutney, it lends a slightly earthy flavour while absorbing some of the water to ensure the chutney is not too soupy. It can be found already roasted at some grocery stores and Indian food markets.
