How To Eat a Dosa

Posted in News

Lotus Chaat & Spices is famous for a dish called Dosa. A dosa is a kind of pancake made from a fermented batter. Its main ingredients are rice and black gram and it is served hot along with sambar and chutney.

Lotus Chaat offers different types of Dosa including Chicken Dosa, Lamb Dosa, Lotus Special Dosa, Salmon Dosa, and Shrimp Dosa. Naturally, Lotus Chaat also offers vegetarian Dosas.

Dosas can be eaten any way you like but there’s a way to do it right. Watch Zagat‘s video showing the right and wrong way to dive into dosas.

What are you waiting for? Head to Lotus Chaat and Spices and dig into a freshly made Dosa!
