Karacha Dosa (Maida Maavu Dosa)

It can be enjoyed with various accompaniments like coconut chutney, sambar or even spicy tomato chutney.

The use of maida in this dosa gives it a light and crispy texture different from the usual dosas. The simplicity of this dish makes it an excellent option for those who want to try their hand at making something new without having to invest too much time or effort.
