Dosa is a traditional food item in South India. Typically, it is prepared from a batter comprised of rice and urad dhal which is kept overnight for fermentation. However, this version of dosa called butter dosa, originated in Devanagari, Karnataka which has made the batter unique by adding puffed rice to it to make the dosa extra soft. This dosa is just one of the many varieties prevalent in the South Indian cuisine; it has a thick base yet is thin and crispy with a soft texture.   This dosa’s popularity is due in large part to the fact that it is served with a generous topping of fresh butter or benne along with a spiced potato dish.
