Davangere is famous for Butter dosa. As my husband had a transferable job, we got transferred to Davangere and stayed for 8 years. So I got a chance to learn this local recipe. This Dosa has ethnic taste which is served with a special chutney and a typical potato sabzi, which makes an awesome combination and taste just heavenly with this crispy dosa. Just give it a try and enjoy as a healthy and delicious breakfast.
