QUAIL EGG MASALA DOSA







Indians love their Dosa and Idli for breakfast. Mainly South Indians as this is a comfort breakfast for them. Most of the time at my home, when ever my mom makes idli or dosa batter, then the rest of the week will be filled with the same breakfast. But for me after eating the same dish for 2 days in a row, I would always get bored. So I started to experiment with varieties of filling with plain dosa and that is how I came to prepare Quail Egg Masala Dosa. Everyone in my family especially my husband loved it.

I mainly prepare this dish for the health reasons, because of the Quail eggs and to keep it differnt in my kitchen. Also this is another fun way to make sure kids eat their breakfast. Who wouldn't love Masala Dosa? and Who wouldn't love tiny eggs?
