This dosa is sure to set your tongue on fire! We have cast some Chinese magic on dosa, the ever-popular South Indian snack, to make a unique and exciting dish. You can think of this as a Chinese counterpart for the popular Masala Dosa, just that the usual potato masala is replaced with a fiery paneer chilli stuffing. The stuffing has a spicy flavour and a wonderful texture, thanks to veggies like capsicum, cabbage, tomatoes, and more. It is important to use tomato ketchup in the stuffing because it balances the spiciness of the chillies.
