Davanagere benne dose recipe, how to make davangere benne dosa

Davanagere benne dose or davangere benne dosa is an extremely popular dosa recipe from Davanagere. Davangere is a city in central karnataka, India. Davanagere is popular for some dishes like mirchi bajji, churumuri, khara mandakki, benne dosa, khali dosa, Guladiki Unndi and many more. Among them benne dosa or butter dosa is very popular and loved by all.

Benne translates to butter in Kannada language. Since good amount of fresh butter is used these dosas are called benne dosa or butter dosa. Davangere benne dosas will be crisp, soft and buttery. Preparation and texture wise these are different from regular dosas.

I have tasted benne dosa in Bangalore and I just love them. The aloogadde palya or potato palya and coconut chutney they serve along with benne dosa is also quite different. For potato palya they just temper the mashed potatoes with green chili and onion. It will be having a bland taste without any spices. And they do not even use turmeric. The coconut chutney will be very spicy. They grind coconut and lot of green chilis to prepare spicy coconut chutney. So the spicy chutney will balance the bland taste of potato palya. So I am posting the recipe of potato palya and spicy coconut chutney recipes as well.

And coming to the recipe.., I have done a lot of study, a lot of attempts to get this full proof recipe. This davangere benne dosa almost matches the taste and texture of the authentic benne dosas, which I had in Bangalore.
