This South Indian delicacy has become an integral part of Mumbai street food.

No dosa stall is complete without piping hot deep-fried vadas. Just ask, and can get them submerged in sambhar. The idli-vada combination is a favourite for breakfast!

Besides idlis and vadas try these popular Mumbai street food dosas like Jini Dosa , Schezuan Chopsuey Dosa , Paneer Chilly Dosa and Mysore Masala Dosa .
