Blogging after a long long time.Starting with an all time favorite of my brother.This is one dish which he will always order whenever we visit ShivSagar restaurant in Mumbai.It is just because of him that I have got hooked onto this dish. This dish is a take on the authentic Masala Dosa. Along with the potato Bhaji you add a few other vegetables and a spicy sauce.
