I am a big fan of dosa and try different variations at home and this time tried with mushroom and turned out to be delicious. I have used mushroom thoran (mushroom kerala style poriyal) as a stuffing for dosa. Simple mushroom masala with onion and tomato can also be used for stuffing. This crispy yummy dosa serves best as breakfast or dinner.
