Cheese dosa is an easy dosa variety made with leftover dosa batter, cheese, onions and herbs.
  • 25 to 1.5cups idli or dosa batter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper, crushed or ⅓ to ½ teaspoon black pepper powder, optional
  • ½ cup grated cheese or 50 to 60 grams of grated cheese, can use processed cheese or mozzarella cheese.
  • 2 to 3 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons dried oregano or as required. (can add your choice of herbs)
  • butter as required, you can also use oil,
  • Finely chop 1 large onion and 1 large tomato. Also, grate the cheese and keep it aside.
  • Take the batter and with a spoon stir a few times. If the batter is refrigerated, then let it come to room temperature.
  • Heat a skillet or tawa. Grease it with oil. Make sure to use a well-seasoned skillet or tawa. Otherwise, the dosa can stick to the skillet.
  • You can do this either with a cooking brush dipped in a bit of oil or with a small piece of kitchen napkin (paper or cotton) or a halved onion.
Spreading Dosa Batter To Make Cheese Dosa
  • Keep the flame to a low and take a spoon or ladle full of the dosa batter.
  • As soon as you pour the batter, begin to gently spread the batter. cook on a low flame.
  • When the top is getting cooked, sprinkle some chopped onions on top.
  • Then add some chopped tomatoes.
  • Now sprinkle dried or fresh herbs. I used some chopped fresh basil and dried oregano.
Making Cheese Dosa
  • Sprinkle grated cheese all over.
  • Continue to cook the dosa on a low flame. The cheese will also start melting.
  • At the same time, spread some butter on the sides and on the top. You can also use oil instead of butter.
  • Cook till the base becomes nicely golden and the top of the cheese dosa is also cooked.
  • Then lift the cheese dosa and fold a part of one side. Overlap the second part.
  • Serve butter cheese dosa hot with coconut chutney or sambar. You can also serve it with tomato chutney or onion chutney.
