Whenever I see these little kiosks or stalls with their proud banners advertising a 100 variety of dosas, I am tempted to stop and have a hot capsicum dosa. Its my favourite. And its actually so easy to make at home. This Capsicum Cheese Dosa makes for a quick and easy breakfast dish of dosa stuffed with capsicum peppers and cheese.
Your breakfast dosa is made more interesting when you add capsicum, tomato, cheese to it. Slice them small and make thin dosas to which you add the stuffing. Or directly add the filling to the batter itself and roll out your hot tasty dosas. Add some basil (fresh if you can get it) to give the Capsicum cheese dosa a distinct and refreshing flavour. Add tomatoes if you wish, diced very small.
There is a pleasant contrast in textures, with the softness of the dosa and the crunch of the capsicum and tomato juxtaposed with the melted cheese. I use cheddar cheese or good old Amul cheese cubes, cut into little bits. It melts just right while the dosa is getting ready. Or grate the cheese, add a little freshly ground pepper, mix well and use as in the instructions below.
I have made soft dosas which use less oil, however you could make crisp dosas by spreading the batter to a thin round shape. The dosa will cook faster and cheese may be added after one side is done.
