This strikingly presented pancake is a staple in Southern India. Usually served conically, the thin pancake is made from fermented black lentils and rice batter. Inside comes a spicy curry and is best scooped up using the crispy crêpe.
Hands down the best dosa we’ve ever had the pleasure of eating, Gymkhana have mastered this South Indian dish and added a pinch of fine dining distinction. The browned cone pancake conceals a small rich curry of Chettinad duck and coconut chutney.

This small street food vendor specialises in authentic Indian street food. A regular at Borough Market, they post their monthly schedule online so fans, or the dosa curious, can head down and pick one up. Go for the ‘Dosa of the Day’ because it’s always good; we love the Moong Dal Dosa - a spiced lentil pancake filled with a spicy potato masala. All come served with channa chat (chickpea mix), chutneys and a sprinkling of pomegranate seeds.

Specialising in South West coastal Indian cuisine, this Michelin star restaurant excels in turning out authentic and tasty food. The mini masala dosa is a starter but one of the best starters we’ve had in a while. The small rice and lentil pancakes are strategically placed over a small curry of tempered potatoes and vegetables, served with sambhar - a tamarind based vegetable stew.
