Buttery and cheesy Jini Dosa is the Mumbai roadside vendor’s answer to pizza! Dosas cooked in butter are topped with a succulent and spicy mixture of veggies, which is also cooked in butter!

This is then garnished with loads of cheese and cooked for a few more minutes till the cheese melts and appetizingly coats the veggie topping.

Slice it with a pizza cutter and share it with your friends – we assure you, it will make your day. While the Jini Dosa is self-sufficiently tasty, you can also enjoy it with chutney and sambhar.

Have a go at other Mumbai roadside specialties like the Misal and Pani Puri .

I love the dosa and my whole family found it very yummy. I have added schezwan noodle masala in the dosa for a tangy spicy taste.
