I owe this one to a dear friend – since he introduced me to this lip smacking benne (butter) dosas at Basaveshwaranagar. As evident from the name, they serve only dosas along with chutney – no sambar at all. No coffee or tea is served at this joint.
About Basaveshwaranagar Dosa Camp:
Located in the western part of Bangalore, Basaveshwaranagar Dosa Camp has been serving delicious and super heavy on butter dosas since 2004. Started by Mr.Shivaraj about 9 years ago, they have mastered the art of making benne dosas akin to the Davangere Benne Dosa.
They are open all days from 7:30 am to 1 pm and 5 pm to 10 pm.
Their menu consists of only 5 varieties of dosas:
– Benne Masala: 28 INR
– Open Dosa : 28 INR
– Benne Khali: 28 INR
– Benne Dosa: 27 INR (Must try)
– Set Dosa: 23 INR
I tried the Benne Masala and Benne Dosa – both were awesome; super filling as well (courtesy the butter).
What makes these dosas stand out from the regular benne dosas – giving them a unique taste and making them super crunchy are the 7 servings of butter (you heard it right – 7 dollops of butter/dosa) used to roast the dosa at various intervals and the forgotten art of cooking with firewood.
Word of caution:
- This place is packed during the weekends (especially during the evenings). We had wait on a Sunday morning for about 30 mins to get the dosas – although they have a brilliant token system which ensures no-one jumps the line and that everyone gets what they ordered for.
- NEVER EVER make the mistake of parceling this for your loved ones – it is best enjoyed hot and crispy right out of the tava 🙂
