Brinjal (Mattina Gulla) Spicy Dosa.

Brinjal Spicy dosa is one of the traditional side dish from Udupianys/South Canara, which we enjoy thoroughly eating along with plain rice and fresh coconut oil.

The special type of brinjal/Egg plant/badanekai/Kattari Kai is used for this Brinjal Spicy Dosa. The spice lovers can have them for breakfast too.
The special variety of Brinjal is called " Mattina Gulla". Mattu is a place near to Udupi in Karnataka. This Brinjal ( Mattina Gulla), stands for No. 1 in the taste and the texture. It is cooked faster.(It should be fresh and tender).
