Dosa may be a speciality of south Indian cuisine but has fans all across the country. We can never say no to a plate of dosa, sambhar and chutneys. While we love the crispy dosa with a yummy aloo filling inside, a softer version of dosa also has a huge fan following in south India. Set dosa, also known as sponge dosa, is a soft pancake-like thin dosa which is spongy, porous and light to eat. Set dosa is usually smaller in size and is served in a set of more than one dosa - that's why the name set dosa. It is a popular breakfast dish and can be quickly made with fermented batter.
