2 cups dosa batter, shop-bought or homemade

1 cup filling, such as seasoned keema or mixed vegetables, lightly mashed

2 tbsp ghee or oil


Heat a tava until it sizzles like the MA Chidambaram in May.

Pour a small ladle of batter and spread it fairly thinly like Indian fielders on Day 3 of a Test match.

Spread 2 tbsp of filling on the dosa.

Pour over another small ladle of batter and cover the filling.

Drizzle oil or ghee around the double dosa and cook both sides until crisp and brown like the Rajkot pitch on a hot summer’s day.

Serve hot with chutney.
