Paneer dosa recipe
Paneer dosa was in my try list since I had this in a 101 dosa corner. We ordered Paneer cheese dosa for Raksha, Pav bhaji masala dosa for me and Spring dosa for Sendhil. Raksha couldn’t complete the dosa as it was really big. So myself & Sendhil had the remaining. 

I loved the paneer masala stuffing of the dosa &I could guess the ingredients easily. It was more like paneer bhurji. So I tried to recreate the same at home and succeeded in my attempt too. This is so easy to make and tastes yummy with coconut chutney as side dish. You can try this for breakfast and dinner as well . Lets see how to prepare this yummy, kids friendly dosa with paneer masala stuffing !!
