This a simple to make spicy dosa, filled with mushroom masala. Healthy tasty and low calorie filling and also tastes alike non veg preparations. Does not require any side dish for a dip but if you want you can serve with sambar or chutney. I used to make chapathi rolls also using this filling. Dosa or chapthis filled with mushroom masala tastes great.

        Generally masala dosa is prepared with the potato filling. Which adds more carbohydrate in your diet. And also have to precook the potatoes and the masala preparation takes time. But mushroom cooks in no time; this recipe saves your time and is also a healthy alternative. So i have replaced potatoes filling with this spicy mushroom filling.
