Navya posted on 26 October

A humble breakfast staple it may be. But to produce a perfectly round, golden-hued, crispy-around-the-edges-and-fluffy-in-the-middle-dosa is nothing short of an art. LBB traces the restaurants in town that have mastered this fine art.

While they also serve the plain and onion dosa varieties, the crowds mainly come in for their thick, crunchy masala dosa that goes splendidly with bowls of their steaming sambhar.
