Jini Dosa ~ Spicy Cheese Dosa Mumbai Street Food

Jini Dosa

Jini Dosa is a popular street food from Mumbai made with regular dosa batter, topped with veggies and a mix of sauces, finally topped with cheese.

This is supposed to be one of the most popular dishes to try from the Mumbai Street Foods. When I was doing the AtoZ International Street Food during April, I read about this dish and ever since being wanting to make it.

So when I was making this list, I decided I was going to make this. I set out to watch the many videos available. Each vendor seem to a version different from the other. Though the common ingredients seem to be a mix of veggies cooked directly over the dosa, in a sauce of schezwan sauce. Tomato sauce, chilli sauce etc with loads of cheese on top.

One thing was that this dosa is made using regular dosa batter, you only have to plan the veggies and sauces.

I made it for Konda’s dinner along with another letter that also needed only dosa batter. Both the varieties were too good. The other version was super duper hit, while she fine with this too. Since this dosa is served as rolls, I got to eat it as well and felt it was good, especially with loads of cheese over it.

So for J, I have Jini Dosa in the AtoZ Flatbread and More, where I am doing AtoZ Dosa Varieties. If you are curious about J in AtoZ Indian Flatbreads, I have an interesting dish, do check it out!

  4. I remember seeing this on insta videos. The vendors seem to do it very easily, the cooking on the dosa itself part. Need to try this version for my daughter. With that amount of cheese inside I am sure she would love it..

  5. That’s an interesting version of the dosa.Have seen them in Mumbai often serving dosa with a variety of filling.I ‘ve tried the one with pav baji filling and cheese. Now I know what these dosas are called.
