Places Where You Can Gorge Best Dosas In Bangalore!

Breakfast Staple, Dosa : This fermented crepe made from rice batter and lentils has stolen the hearts of most of the Indians and even foreigners with its simplicity and palatable flavour. A humble breakfast staple it may be, but to produce a perfectly round, golden-hued, crispy-around-the-edges-and-fluffy-in-the-middle-dosa is nothing short of an art.

Tear off a big piece, dip it in the sambhar—if not all—of the three very patriotic-looking chutneys, and you’re good to go!

Sprinkled around the city, small restaurants is where you’ll find the best dosas in Bangalore. Plan with a bunch of friends and go around the city on a dosa tasting adventure with these handpicked restaurants that have mastered this fine art.

For those living in North Bangalore, the first name that would come to their lips at the mention of dosas would be Hotel Janatha. Nestled between various shops, this place is a little hard to find but the smell of the sambhar wafting onto the roads simply draws you to the place automatically. While they also serve the Plain and Onion dosa varieties, the crowds mainly come in for their thick, crunchy Masala Dosa that goes splendidly with bowls of their steaming sambhar.

CTR another low-key corner that’s been around for over half a century. Ask any of the old Bangaloreans about the best place for Benne Masala Dosa, and “see-tee-aargey hogi” will be the reply. This restaurant’s iconic status is well-warranted. Dosas apart, this place is also famous for its chutneys. The light kadleykai and the tangy karibevu chutney are a trademark.

MTR is to south Indian snacks what Haldirams is to north Indian ones. Started by the Maiyya family in 1924, introduced the idea of “tiffins” and is one of the leading food processors in this part of the world. Taking credit for inventing many dosa varieties, they take pride in their Rava Dosa. Many order their signature Masala Dosa that comes topped with a tiny bowl of melted ghee, that’ll add plenty of richness to your meal. But you need the patience to sink your teeth into one (Sabar ka phal kickass Dosa hota hai :p)

If you are a Khali (set) Dosa lover and you haven’t stepped into this place called Hotel Dwaraka, then you have surely missed something great! The downy dosas, with a blob of melting butter on top, are accompanied by a spicy potato side dish and a chutney – the trio please your palate to no end. If you want the actual taste of the dosas, you should have the dosas with the neer chutney served in the hotel.
