It has no religion, no caste – True and perfect statement for the food. India is diverse in foods, one such dish is dosa. It does not matter whether you are a south Indian or North Indian or belong to any part of the country if you have a great taste bud and your mouth filled with water after hearing the hot, spicy, crispy, masala filled dosa.
Yes it is right to say that south Indian states are perfect in making varieties of dosa, but several restaurants in Delhi are close in making dosa as we eat in south India. Delhi restaurants are also not behind in making dosa by experts’ hands.
This is not a paid post where restaurants pay for reviewing their dishes whether they are bad or good you need to stick to a specific output. These restaurants are often crowded (Thanks to their paid marketing attention, they even tried their dishes. The only taste we got was in our pocket, all thanks to their high bills.)
My Love for South Indian Food- Specially Dosa
I love south Indian food and have a great understanding of it. I was born in a pundit family and i love vegetarian food either north Indian or south Indian vegetarian food. Yes I am a vegetarian but I eat onions and garlic, the only thing which I did not eat and never will is meat and eggs. I have done schooling and my higher studies in Delhi itself, as a foodie I have almost tried all the restaurants in Delhi. I avoid going to restaurants that are more of the show but less in quality, which leads me to my opinion that the great taste you will get in the small restaurants that are hidden like gems in different parts of the city. As these places are explored by me from my schooling days to till the day I am writing this content.
All the below-listed restaurants in Delhi that have finger-licking dosa in their menu, believe me, these restaurants will never disappoint you when you seek your favorite dosa.

It is said that the real taste of food comes only when the intention of the maker to feed it is more than the intention of the eater. It is very true for this small south Indian fast food corner. As I am not a big fan of hi-fi expensive restaurants, I believe real taste exists in these small restaurants. During my school days, I used to sit there and had butter masala dosa very frequently (I used to eat butter masala dosa every 2-3 days.) You will enjoy the masala filled in the masala dosa.

It was June 2019 when I discovered this hidden gem. This place is very small with no other food restaurants nearby, It is a unit of Shri Youth caterers. When I first stepped into Youth dosa it was a small place but within a few months they expanded their area. Their chefs are experts in making all the south Indian food, other than the dosa I really enjoy medu vada. You can easily reach there from the Mayur vihar extension metro station.

Sagar Ratna is not an affection for any introduction, the name is enough in South Indian food restaurants. It has many branches in Delhi and this is the only restaurant on my list which is expansive but the taste quality of this restaurant is very good. Although it has many outlets, I personally like the Connaught place Delhi outlet. When I first tasted the sambar, the first word which came in my mind was awesome. Other than the dosa and sambar the chutney they serve along with your dosa is great in taste. You will never forget the taste of buttery, crispy paper dosa.

If you love flea market shopping then just behind this restaurant is Laxmi Nagar’s mangal Bazar. After finishing your shopping I will suggest you to at least try Priyanshi south Indian food. Not only their dosa is tasty but uttapam is phenomenal too.

When you are in the mood of eating tasty masala dosa with a cold drink, then we will suggest this place. It is just 10-20 footsteps from the Nirman vihar metro station. If you are a student or tight on a budget but not ready to compromise with the taste of dosa then this dosa corner is right for you. Ask for a sambar as many time as you want, I bet पेट भर जाएगा लेकिन मन नहीं भरेगा.
South Indian tasty food plus Chinese food also served.

South Indian’s not only gave us awesome action movies but their food is topping our list. If you are a die heart fan of dosa then I will suggest you try the above restaurant’s dosa at least once in your lifetime. We have seen many south Indian restaurants open and close every day due to their financial instability but most importantly due to their poor food taste. Most of the above listed south Indian restaurants are small but they are serving tasty hot, crispy, and mouth-watering dosa’s for decades.
