Paneer Chilli Dosa Recipe Ingredients:

  • Dosa Batter
  • Tomato (Finely chopped) – 1/2 cup
  • Onion (Finely chopped) – 1/2 cup
  • Green capsicum (chopped in slices) – 1/2 cup
  • Cabbage (chopped) – 1 cup
  • Cottage cheese (chopped in cubes) – 1.5 cup
  • Chilly garlic sauce – 2 tbsp
  • Tomato ketchup – 2 tbs
  • Salt – as required
  • Chilly powder – 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 2 tbs
  • Oil – for cooking

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Chilly Paneer:

  • Take a pan on the gas and add little oil to it. Add onion, capsicum, and cabbage to it. Sauté it for 5 minutes.
  • When the onion turns golden brown, add tomatoes and all the spices, including salt, chilly powder, and garam masala, and mix it well.
  • Add the tomato ketchup and chilly garlic sauce. Mix all the ingredients.
  • Add paneer cubes and then cook it for 3-4 minutes so that the paneer absorbs all the spices and sauces. Stuffing is ready.


  • In a large bowl, add all the different flours, salt, sugar, and add approximately 3/4 cup of water and mix to make a batter. Ensure it is lump-free.
  • The batter should not be too thick or too thin.
  • Heat a pan (preferably non-stick) on medium heat.
  • Sprinkle some water before spreading the dosa batter.
  • Pour a generous amount of batter in the center and quickly spread into a circle using a cooking spoon only in one direction.
  • Add 1/2 tsp of oil around the dosa, and let it cook for 1 minute on low-medium flame.
  • Now, add the stuffing in the centre of the dosa, and spread all over the dosa with the help of a spoon.
  • When dosa is ready, carefully fold it into half or make a roll.
  • Your dosa is ready to eat. Serve it hot with tomato chutney or coconut chutney.

Some special instructions:

  • You can replace paneer with tofu according to your preference.
  • You can add more veggies such as corn, bell pepper, carrot, and baby corn to your stuffing.
  • If the dosa batter you are using was kept in the fridge then keep it at room temperature for some time before use.
