To Prepare Paneer Chilli Stuffing:

To Prepare Paneer Chilli Dosa:

  • Now, it is time to make dosa. Put the non-stick dosa tawa on the flame. Let it heat. Keep the flame medium and then sprinkle water on the Tawa and wipe it with a clean cloth.
  • Pour the dosa batter with the help of a small bowl or round serving spoon and spread it in a circle to make a thin dosa.
  • Put some oil to the edges and let the dosa get brown. 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.


  • You can replace paneer with tofu according to your choice.
  • You can add more veggies such as corn, bell pepper, carrot, and baby corn to your stuffing.
  • You can add poha also while making the dosa batter recipe, to make the dosa more crispy.
