Pepper, Egg and A Dosa!!

Dosas are a favourite for breakfast at my home and we keep having it almost every alternate day. But having the same old plain dosa or the regular masala dosa can get a little boring at times. I love experimenting with dosas and thats what made me land up with this simple but tasty dosa variety….
There are no fancy ingredients, just eggs, onions and lots of pepper. I teamed this up with onion chutney and the combination was fab!!

One little tip to make crispy and stiff restaurant style roasts which are best suited for masala dosas – do not make your dosa batter too watery, it should be of dropping consistency.


Pepper- egg masala dosa

(Measurements to make 2 dosas)

Dosa batter
Eggs – 2
Pepper- 1 tsps ( according to your spice requirements)
Onions – 2 medium sized sliced
Green chilli – 2-3 as per your spice requirement
Curry leaves


Break both the eggs into a cup and whisk it till its nice a frothy.
Take a frying pan, pour in 2 tbsp of oil and wait until hot. Now add the onions and green chillies and curry leaves and sauté till the onions are translucent. Once this is done, remove half of the onions from the pan and keep aside. Into the remaining onions pour half of the whisked egg, lower the flame and wait for it to cook.
 If you want your eggs fully cooked, as I prefer it to be, you will have to turn over the egg- onion mixture (Its ok if u break it, coz this is anyways going into the dosa).
You can skip this step if your preference is otherwise. Now lets season the masala with 1/2 tsp of pepper. 

Remember to add pepper only in the end.... this keeps the flavour strong.
While this is happening on your frying pan, heat your dosa pan and make a nice thin and crispy dosa. Pour ghee or oil over your dosa..Yum yum!
Once your dosa is ready place the egg masala onto the centre of the dosa and fold it over.

Viola!!! Your pepper- egg masala dosa is ready…..

Onion Chutney


Onions- 2 large ones sliced
Tomato- 1 medium diced
Garlic- a small piece
Curry leaves- 2-3
Tamarind- a small pinch
Oil (coconut oil is my preference)


Heat a pan and pour 1 tsp of oil, put the onions, garlic and the curry leaves into to this and sauté till the onions are translucent, now add the tomatoes and sauté further for 2 or 3 mins. Let this mixture cool down completely before you put it into your blender to make a smooth paste. Before you blend add a pinch of tamarind into the mixture.

Now pour in 1 tbsp of oil into your chutney and mix well. You may now transfer the chutney into a serving dish and enjoy your dosa!!
