Street Food Diaries : Loni (White Butter) Dosa – Davangere Special

Being a South Indian myself, normally I don’t get satisfied with the taste of Dosas i get to eat outside – either at restaurants or at the street side stalls.

Then I came across this variety of Dosa, a popular type of Dosa from Davangere ( a city in Karnataka State). Davangere Benne Dosa , as it is known in Karnataka, is popularly known as ‘Loni Dosa’ in Mumbai.

The USP of the Dosa is that white butter (instead of oil or ghee) is used in the preparation of Dosa. This gives a different texture and taste to the Dosa.

There are different versions of Loni Dosas that you get to choose. My favourite ones are the plain Loni Dosa and the sponge dosa. Dosa is served along with sambhar, coconut chutney and masala (onion potato mix). Dosa powder is also available which normally is sprinkled on top of the Dosa while preparing it to make the Dosa slightly spicy.


You can find this street side stall in front of the Happy Valley Entrance, Thane.

Yummy,, Delicious, Soft dosas served Hot…!!!
