Mumbai Street Style Jini Dosa

Mumbai Street Style Jini Dosa

I happened to see a reel of a street vendor making these yummy dosas. I had to immediately try them at home! And ever since, jini dosa has been a favorite. My family loves it! JINI DOSA are dosa which is  smeared with a blop of butter and some veggies like chopped onion, tomatoes, coriander leaves, spring onion, capsicum are added. These dosas are tangy, sweet, spicy and short..ALL THINGS GOOD🤤

I always stock up on my homemade Szechuan sauce and this is one of the recipes that I use it for, quite often! 

Make sure not to cook the veggies well, they need a crunch to it! I could never imagine Dosa without ghee and/ coconut oil and this Dosa really is completely different! Adding the paneer to the masala gives it a whole new makeover which makes it avoid source of protein too. These Dosa can be served with chutneys of your choice, but I like them as it is! Jini Dosas are already flavor packed! The cheese pull says it all😍
