Cabbage, Aloo Masala dosa with chat masala Flavor

Masala dosa is one of the most favorite breakfast in South India. Of course it's my favorite breakfast too. Normally what we make for masala dosa stuffing is a potato curry. But now a days there are many varieties of stuffing's we are using to give a twist to traditional masala dosa.
                                                    Normally i make aloo and cabbage curry with garam masala for roties. Yestarday  i made this curry with chat masala that gives a different taste to the curry. when i had this curry with my dosas i liked the combination. That time i got this idea of making this curry as a filling for dosas. Today morning again i made this curry and used as masala dosa stuffing. So that this cabbage and aloo masal dosa with chat masala was born.
Let's check the recipe.
