This is  the first dosa  recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen.  Paneer Dosa is the one which i tasted during my college days and i tried this recipe a few times at home. When i made this during last weekend i reserved a little batter and made again yesterday for my lunch. For all paneer lovers out there, this is a surely a treat for you all. Generally we make paneer butter masala, paneer paratha using paneer. Try out this dosa for a change and i am sure you will love it. Home made paneer can also be used for this recipe, fresh paneer tastes much better and also saves time of scrambling the frozen paneer too.

Method with step by step pictures :

  • Soak the paneer cubes in hot water for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes drain the water and scramble the paneer.( I used the mixie to do this)
  • Alternatively you can keep the paneer cubes in room temperature for 15 minutes and pulse it in a mixie.
  • If using fresh paneer, scramble with hands and go ahead in making the paneer masala dosa.
  • Chop the onions and capsicum finely.
  • In a pan, add the oil and throw in the mustard seeds, curry leaves and add the onions.
  • Saute till translucent. Add the chopped tomato.
  • Saute for few minutes.
  • Add red chili powder, salt and garam masala.
  • Saute for few minutes and add  the chopped capsicum and  scrambled paneer one by one.
  • Saute for 2 –3 minutes in  low flame.
  • Mix well and add coriander leaves. Switch off the flame.
  • Heat a dosa tawa and when it is hot  start making dosa by making a circle with the back of the laddle.
  • Place 3-4 tblsp of filling in the center and when the base part turns golden brown just fold the dosa.
  • If you want just drizzle a few drops of ghee.
  • No need to flip the dosa.
  • We always have this without any side dish.
  • If you want to have with any side dish just click chutney and sambar recipes.
  • Always serve hot.

  • While making the masala , you can add any finely chopped veggie of your choice.
  • The dosa batter should not be too thick and it should be of a pouring  consistency, to get crispy paneer dosa .

Hi Jayashri, your recipes are really good ! awesome clicks too . For paneer dosa, instead of making stuffing i add onions (cut finely), grated carrots, crumbled paneer (microwaved),kothamalli on top after spreading the batter..
