  1. We begin making the Muttai Dosa Recipe Or Egg Roll Dosa by following the below instruction 

  2. Have the Homemade Idli Dosa Batter Recipe ready. Follow these instructions in the link to make the Idli Dosa Batter.

To Make the Muttai Mixure (Egg Mixture)

To Make the Muttai Dosa
  1. Heat the skillet on medium heat. Pour a ladleful of batter over the skillet and spread the batter evenly using a spiral motion from inside out.

  2. Pour a teaspoon of oil or ghee around the edges. Allow the dosa to steam on the top side for just a few seconds. 

  3. Add the single egg muttai mixture over the dosa and spread it evenly around the dosa.

  4. Cover the pan, and lightly steam cook the dosa until the egg is cooked. Once done, flip the Muttai Dosa and cook on the other side for about a minute, so the onions get to get cooked well and lightly browned.
