The most famous Cochin community pita bread. It is very soft and it is usually eaten with sauces like chammanthi, curry stews, chicken or meat dishes, you can fill it with every delicious and favorite stuffing . The basic dough is used for many variations.

Traditionally, dosa is eaten during the holidays and festivals, but in my kitchen I prepare all the time, because it is my kid's favorite, especially when it is hot and fresh. I usually prepare a large quantities and fry it just before eating, so that it will be remain hot and fresh. I do not recommend preparing in advance, but if you have left with remaining batter, it could be kept in the refrigerator in a closed container and be used in the next day, you just need to add a small amount of water, and mix well before frying.

If you still have a few dosa's left overs, just heat them up in a pan for a few seconds and it will be great!

1/2 cup oil (100 ml)
