Egg | muttai dosa recipe | முட்டை தோசை was a very easy to prepare recipe for everyone, especially for bachelors. This can be prepared in few minutes when ever you are hungry.  Though it’s easy to cook, it has numerous health benefits and it is tasty too. There are so many varieties of dosai among which this is one. Each dosai has its own taste. When I am young I used to confuse the name between egg omelet and egg dosa often 😊

This dosa is actually prepared with the combination of rice batter and egg. We make dosa at first using rice batter and above it we pour the contents of egg. To add more taste and flavour we add finely chopped vegetables like carrot, onion, and fresh coriander leaves  above the egg. Dosai will be well cooked on both sides to golden yellow, sprinkling oil above. Dosa lovers can try this and enjoy its taste.
