I have already shared the North Indian style of Broccoli Aloo Masala recipe in my blog. This Broccoli potato masala is entirely different from that one both in looks as well as taste. This one is a bit mild and less spicy. The north Indian style preparation is a tomato based spicy preparation.

You could prepare that north Indian style filling too for this dosa, but that's is purely your choice. Today I have come up with a south Indian style of Broccli and potato masala to serve with dosa. You could serve masala with chapatis, pooris, dosa..etc. I have given a healthy twist to the South Indian Potato masala by adding the healthy ingredient, the broccoli.
