  1. helloo mam. your dosa are looking to good . but mam instead of using ginger add ginger garlic and green chilly paste then the masala for the dosa will turn awsome 😊👌👍

  2. i m sorry but I am a tamilian and I completely do not agree with the fact that this is authentic masala dosa… the dosas texture and color is completely wrong and your dosa looks brittle… good try
