Masala Dosa | Spicy Potato Filling | Aloo Bhaji


This is the tasty, spicy potato filling for Masala Dosa, also known as Aloo Bhaji. So simple to make, this filling may be used  as a side dish with Puris as well. I love plain crispy dosas with chutney and sambar. On some days, however I will feel like having Onion Dosas or Masala Dosas. After all, Variety is the spice of life!
