Kara Dosa

Kara Dosa is a beloved South Indian breakfast dish popular for its spicy and savory flavors. The dosa batter is infused with a bright red chili paste, giving it its distinct hue and a deliciously bold flavor.

Kara Dosa pairs well with various chutneys and sambar, traditional South Indian accompaniments. Coconut chutney, tomato chutney, and peanut chutney are all great options to add extra flavor and texture to your meal. Suppose you’re a fan of Kara Dosa. You might also enjoy other South Indian dishes like Masala Dosa, Idli, or Vada.
