Feeling peckish during sightseeing – have a masala dosa

Some of the most popular sightseeing places in India are big in size. This means that you will have to do a lot of walking around. For example, let’s take the grounds of Delhi’s Red Fort for instance or the Raj Ghat (memorial to Mahatma Gandhi); they are big and you will have to do a lot of walking. Undoubtedly, some of us will get hungry and would like take a little break. I certainly start feeling peckish after all that walking around. What do you in such a situation? Why not take a break and have a cup of Indian tea and something to eat before you go to your next destination. In fact, it might be good thing to take a mini break for a moment to take it all in. The great thing about India is that you don’t have to go very far to find a street food stall or even a small restaurant – most of the time, it’s usually round the corner. Just feel free to take a look at their menu.

Raj Ghat Complex (Memorial to Mahatma Gandhi). You have to do a bit of walking to get to the memorial.

Some of the most popular dishes will certainly be on the menu. One such dish is the popular South Indian dish the “Masala Dosa”. I suggest you try this dish (here’s a list of top 10 dishes to try when in India). It’s light and will certainly keep hunger away till lunch or dinner time where you can explore other Indian foods in more detail. Made of stuffed potatoes and other vegetables and served with coconut chutney and sambar (lentils and vegetables added to it), the masala dosa makes a decent snack or a meal if you have more than one whichever way you look at it.

  1. Hi Shalu,

    That’s YUM :)

    Yes, it’s a treat to have masala dosa anytime I think! We’ve stopped so many times while sightseeing and had dosas and other South Indian dishes. I guess the taste is what really gets us going ahead, and a little tea and dosa break is an all time favorite with me too. Glad I can make them at home too, and when I do, we tend to carry on eating them for 2-3 days, in variations – the kids just love it!

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

    Hi Shalu,

    we have eaten this dish, Masala Dosa, ever so often during our vacation of India, 2004. and since then our children always ask for it if we go to an Indian Restaurant here in Berlin.

    Can’t wait to make it to India and dig into Masala dosa!

  5. Prasad Np says:

    Masala dosa is sure my favorite street food along with sambhar. The best part is you can order a plain dosa that the kids also enjoy, and the Sambhar can reinvigorate you with fresh energy..

    Hi Shalu,

    Masala Dosa is one of my favorites, besides paranthas. What i funny is, most people in north India seem to label ‘masala dosa’ as a snack. And my favorite south Indian restaurant lists ‘chole bhature’ as snack.
    I don’t get it. Both dishes are good (yummy) enough to fulfill hunger, I think :-).

    Hi Shalu,
    I have not yet been to India, but travelling is one of my favorite hobbies. When I do travel to India, I will certainly be sure to try some of that Masala Dosa. Thank you for sharing this treat,

    I guess moving around India was a very experience for you. India literally has many tourist places comimng from north Jammu & kashmir to south kanyakumari.The one country where people of different religions castes all live together.One of the best thing about this country is its food.

    I totally agree that it is not difficult to find a food stall or restaurant in India. And normally at any restaurant you could find all types of cuisines, specialties. Masala Dosa surely is one wonderful snack to try. Mostly in South India they serve it as a breakfast item.Personally I love this item it is purely vegetarian, lite and fulfills your hunger. I suggest every body to have a try on this item. You would love it.
