The 3 Dosas Carnatic Cafe Keeps Us Coming Back for

Editors posted on 18 February

Carnatic Cafe needs no introduction, but have you eaten all the dosas there yet? We tried all their special dosas, and here’s what we liked the best:

Malleshwaram 18th Cross

If you haven’t eaten this yet, you’re seriously missing out. This one came out the clear winner with its tangy flavours and right amount of spice, and scored a perfect 10 on our fluffiness index.

Tear off a big piece, dip it in the sambhar and any one—if not all—of the three very patriotic-looking chutneys, and you’re good to go.

Manina Maga

This has groundnut chutney spread all over a super-fluffy dosa {really, how do they make their dosas so fluffy?!} and is a real treat for the tastebuds. With Karnataka Bayadgi chili included in the mix, this dish was packed with flavour.


The description on the menu really piqued our curiosity: Spicy cinnamon garlic chutney and white butter. Once the dosa arrived we were more than impressed with the subtle flavouring of cinnamon, never before thinking we would have enjoyed such a combination.

While the outside looks a lot like the Malleshwaram dosa, it is inside where the two really differ, and shine.


We also ate the Neer, which comes with a coconut jaggery chutney on the side. While we can’t vouch for the authenticity {the Neer we ate in Karnataka was way thinner} if you have a dominant sweet tooth, you may enjoy this.
