Dosa is been a soul food for most of them in South India. Even we use to have dosa on alternate days or sometimes on daily basis, but still we never get bored to it. Dosa batter is most commonly home made and keep in the refrigerator for days. The very same batter is used to make Idlis, Uthappam. Dosa are mainly served with different types of chutneys , sambhar(curry made with red lentil)  and dosa chilli powder.
