Tuppa means clarified butter or ghee, so a Tuppa dosa is nothing but a variant of this delicious dish using a generous amount of ghee
According to some historians, the humble and much-loved dosa originated in the Udipi town of Karnataka where it was first mentioned by a Chalukya king Someshwara III, who in his book Manasollasa had mentioned a recipe by the name of Dosaka. But Tamil Nadu claims it as its own stating that dosa (dosai as its known in TN) has been part of Tamil culture since the 1st century AD and written about too in Sangam literature.
Preparation time: Soak overnight – at least 8-10 hours
Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
Servings: 8-10 dosas
Dosas are a great source of carbohydrates and very easy to digest. They’re ideal as a meal and needn’t be confined to any one meal time. They’re high on proteins and low on calories. They’re also high on Vitamin C – a nutrient essential for the development and maintenance of our blood vessels. This is one dish that is completely guilt-free for those trying to keep their weight in check.
