- You could use a Non-Stick Tawa or Cast-Iron Tawa. Though Non-Stick Tawas make the job easier, I personally recommend using Cast iron and works best all the time I have made these dosas.
- Cast iron cookware is inexpensive, hold a high heat capacity, free of chemicals, add trace amounts of iron to your food, and last—well—forever.
- Keep the cast-iron tawa/skillet well seasoned always and exclusive for making dosa. Using the same Tawa for making Roti/Chapathi, would make it harder for making dosas the next time.
- The right temperature of tawa need to be maintained for making this dosa, also the consistency of the batter should be not too thick and not too watery. Don’t worry if dosa sticks anytime and you find hard to scrape out. Just get the tawa off the stove and scrape and once clean, rub oil using half cut onion/potato. The Tawa is all set to make dosas again.
- You could add veggies like carrot and capsicum for add on taste and healthy version.
- I skipped adding chili as I was making for kids. For a spicy version, add finely chopped green chili while preparing egg mixture and also you could sprinkle chutney powder on top of egg dosa.
Egg Dosa is also a famous street food from South India. There are a variety of egg dosas prepared. Here is another version of egg dosa with added on veggies; grated Carrot, and finely chopped Capsicum. It is absolutely Yummier than ever!!
This is a very versatile recipe, use veggies of your choice; Make your own version of egg dosa and use the dosa batter of your choice.
