Grilled Cheese Dosai

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Monday, October 29, 2012 | 3:40 PM

Dosa is a gluten free crepe that is very popular in the south of India. It is such a comfort food and each individual has an opinion as to how they like their dosai's cooked. Crisp dosai is what I enjoy, while I know a lot of people who like it soft like a crepe. Being particular about the texture of dosai is one thing, what gets stuffed inside a dosai is another thing altogether. The common stuffing's are cauliflower, potato, onion, tomato etc, but my daughter loves hers with cheese. She calls it the "grilled cheese dosai" and enjoys it with ketchup. Claims that is the best combination and I am always happy to make what she enjoys. Fusion cooking is what I call it. It just struck me that, the grilled cheese dosai can be served as bite size appetizers on a cold winter day and it would taste awesome.


Iron Griddle
Measuring cups and spoons


Dosai Batter - 2 ladles 
Cheese - 3 tbsp
Oil / Ghee - 2 tbsp
Heavy Pan


1. Make 8 inch soft dosai's on the iron griddle. Cook on both sides, remove and place them in a plate.

2. Sprinkle 3 tbsp of cheese on half of the dosai, fold the dosai to resemble half a circle

3. Set the iron griddle on low. Place the cheese filled dosai back on the griddle and put a heavy pan on top. Toast it well on both sides, until it gets crunchy and golden brown and the cheese starts to melt and ooze.

4. Remove from heat, cut them into mini triangles and serve it hot with ketchup.

Note: If you want to serve this for a party, make the triangles and place in the oven heated to 220 degrees F, so that they stay warm.
