Roast dosa on both sides till slight brown on low flame.

Step 9

Remove onto a serving plate.

Step 10

For making chutney:
1)Grind together coconut, green chillies, ginger and salt to a smooth paste adding enough water.

Step 11

Transfer them into a bowl and add salt.

Step 12

Heat oil in a small pan.

Step 13

Add mustard seeds and when it splutters, add curry leaves.

Step 14

Pour this into the bowl and mix well.
