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

IMG_7760If 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

MMdosaThis 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.


BombatThe 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.

#LBBNote: 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.
