This is one of my favorite foods to eat -- a great potato mixture combined with a warm dosa. Before today, I had never tried making the filling before (and I have yet to try making a dosa). I thought this was good, but not exactly what I was looking for. I will keep looking for my perfect aloo masala!
Aloo Masala for Dosa
1 T oil
pinch asafetida (opt)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 jalapeno, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon juice
1 T cilantro, chopped
Boil the potatoes until they are soft. Let cool and then peel and chop.
Heat oil in a large skillet. When hot, add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, and asafetida.
Once the seeds begin to pop, add turmeric, potatoes, jalapeno, and salt. Stir-fry for a few minutes.
Add lemon juice and cilantro. The potatoes should be slightly moist and not very dry.
