Look what we found….

… in our quest to ‘try out some different foodstuff this weekend’! This, by the way, is an on-going quest for the OH and me, and we don’t ever seem to get tired of it.

Back to the point of the post, we ‘found’ a dosa stall at Koramangala that boasts of not 10 or 20 but…. 99 varieties of dosa! It is located right outside the Laxmidevi Park at Koramangala, amidst several other food stalls. We have noticed this stall several times before, but somehow never tried out their wares before. It so happened last weekend that the OH and I were visiting the park and got hungry. It was a good 2 hours before dinner time, so we decided to give the dosas a try.

We didn’t see a printed menu anywhere, so we proceeded to ask the stall owner what varieties he could dish out for us. He went on to rattle off a long list – paneer dosa, palak dosa, aloo fry, pavbhaji dosa, cheese panner masala, cheese mushroom masala, chinese dosa, and loads more. We were already drooling by the time he had finished about 15 things from his list, and amazed too: never before had we seen SO MANY varieties of dosas! We decided to go for one pavbhaji dosa between the two of us.

We saw a crowd huddled around the stall, and once we had a bite of the dosa, we came to know why! It was yummylicious! The chutney served alongside the dosa was very fresh and delicious!

The way the stall owner made the dosa was so enchanting to watch – he poured out the dosa batter on a hot griddle and when it was semi-cooked, he went on to put tomatoes and onions and pavbhaji masala on it, and mash it with a pavbhaji maker!

The dosas are quite reasonably priced (between Rs. 40 and Rs. 150, depending on the type you order), and they even stock soft drinks and bottled water. What I liked the most is that the stall is quite hygienic and clean. What more can you ask out of street food, eh?

The dosa turned out to be quite filling, and we returned home sated and excited. We now know we have a long list of ‘different’ stuff to try out! πŸ™‚

PS: Here’s a video of the dosa stall, uploaded by News 9 TV. Check it out! πŸ™‚

  1. you should try the 99 variety dosa stall in basavanagudi. This is right opposite bugle rock. The specialty there is that the dosa is made on a charcoal stove, and the taste is very different because of that.

      Hey, there! Been a long time! How are you doing?
      Yes, I should try that one out. Have heard a lot about that place.

      BTW, this guy at Koramangala also uses a charcoal stove, as far as I remember. However, I am not completely sure of it.


  2. Sounds absolutely awesome. I will have to go there this weekend then, my mouth is already watering. And I thought the best dosas here were at CTR and Vidyarthi Bhavan.

      Hey, Sumitra! Welcome here!
      I haven’t tried the dosas at CTR (what is that, btw?). I had dosa at Vidyarthi Bhavan a long time ago, and have totally forgotten the taste. Should go sometime again. πŸ™‚

    2. @RS: Spaghetti kitchen is great food, however, I balked at the bill – 2500 for two people.. Felt it was a little too much for a normal weeknight dinner-resolved to go there only for some special ocassion ,if at all!
      Oh and have any of you tried Krishna Cafe for the awesome awesome south Indian food πŸ™‚


      1. @The enthu daydreamer
