Jini Dosa

Thin and crispy rolls of dosa with spicy crunchy veggie filling and topped with shredded cheese – does it sound mouthwatering?

Jini dosa is a street food with its origins from Mumbai and something that we used to have fondly in our trips to the maximum city. They are full of veggies, spicy flavours and cheese. Served with any of the dips of South Indian cuisine, these are crisp and thin rolls of dosa and served hot! Trust us, these are very simple to put together and will be enjoyed by your guests very fondly as snacks! Try out with this simple recipe below.

We complemented this with spicy peanut chutney (palli chutney) and loved it! Refer to its recipe coming soon on Break&Binge!


  • Dosa batter
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 cup cabbage
  • 1 capsicum
  • 1 cup boiled corn
  • 1 cup grated cheese (we suggest cheddar)
  • Butter

For sauce:

  • 1 tbsp of schezwan chutney
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp chili flakes
  • ½ tbsp sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp water


  1. Finely chop all the veggies
  2. Mix all the ingredients of sauce to make the spread. Ensure that it is flowing in texture
  3. On a hot pan, pour the dosa batter
  4. Spread a layer of butter on the dosa. Spread the sauce. Sprinkle all the veggies and add some grated cheese (see the picture above)
  5. When the cheese starts to melt, cut the dosa into wide slices. With the help of a pair of tongs, roll the dosa slices
  6. Keep the rolls vertically on a serving tray, sprinkle cheese on top and serve hot with chutney of choice

Points to note:

  • It is advised to rub a half-cut onion on the pan before pouring the dosa. This ensures that dosa is crispy and easy to remove
  • Don’t add too much water in the sauce. The sauce should be of flowing consistency so it is easily spreadable
  • Cook the dosa on medium flame so that it is crisp and does not get burnt
