The 3 Dosas Carnatic Cafe Keeps Us Coming Back For
What Makes It Awesome
Carnatic Cafe needs no introduction, but just in case you haven't had their delicious dosas as yet, you need to try these three on your next visit.
Malleshwaram 18th Cross—This one came out the clear winner of the lot for its tangy flavours and the right amount of spice, and scored a perfect 10 on our fluffiness index. Tear off a big piece, dip it in the sambar 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 chilli included in the mix, this dish was packed with flavour.
Bombat—The description on the menu ('Spicy cinnamon garlic chutney and white butter') really piqued our curiosity. Once the dosa arrived, we were more than impressed with the subtle flavouring of cinnamon. This is one combination we never expected to enjoy so much. While the outside looks a lot like the Malleshwaram dosa, it is on the inside where the two really differ.
What Could Be Better
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.
