What is an egg dosa?
It is a delectable variation of the popular South Indian dosa. It is a popular street food item across Tamil Nadu with many food lovers preferring small roadside stalls to big restaurants when they feel like snacking on egg-topped dosas. You do not have to make any additional provisions or upgrade your skills to make the muttai dosa, another name for egg dosa, either. Prepare the traditional dosa batter and break an egg into it before spreading it on a hot skillet. Alternatively, you may want to break a single egg gingerly over the batter spread on the pan and have a dosa that resembles an omelette.
History of this dish
Tamil Nadu’s food is unique. The dosa, a crepe-like, light dish, crossed the Vindhya mountains to make a triumphant entry into North India as well. The earliest dosa was plain with no frills whatsoever. The varieties with different fillings became popular as people fine-tuned their taste buds. The egg dosa is also known as mutta dosa or muttai dosa and has become popular as a street food item in Tamil Nadu.
