Different things can be used as filling in Dosa s on which Masala Dosa tops , in which Potatoes- masala is used as filling . It is the most tasty one and it is a popular item served in south Indian hotels. It is always served with a Coconut chutney and Uzhunnu vadas ( dough nuts made out of Urad dal and vegetables ) & Sambar.
