Spring masala dosa

We have found a very good Indian restaurant here in Kansas. We love the dosas there. They have a Spring roll masala dosa which has a spicy vegetable bhaji. I was told by a friend that, usually spring roll masala dosa has a stuffing which is like chinese spring rolls, but this was quite different. I love it. I just tried to recreate it at home. It came out a bit different but I liked it very much.

For stuffing:
Ingredients:
1/2 cup cooked, peeled and slightly mashed potatoes
1/2 cup onion
1 tea spn ginger-garlic paste (do not use store bought)
3-4 green chilies
1/4 cup avrekaLu cooked
1/4 cup chopped capsicum
1/4 cup chopped green beans
2 tbl spn fresh/frozen coconut
4-5 strands coriander leaves
1 tbl spn chana dal
A pinch turmeric
4-5 curry leaves
1/2 tea spn mustard seeds
1 tbl spn chopped cashews
Oil
Salt

Method:
Heat oil. Add cashews. When they are slightly brownish, add chana dal, mustard seeds, curry leaves, ginger-garlic paste, green chillies, turmeric. Fry for minute and then add onions. Fry till they turn translucent. Add potatoes, capsicum, green beans, avrekaLu, salt. Sprinkle some water and close the lid, let it cook till all vegetables are done.
Add coconut, coriander leaves. Mix well.

Chutney:
1/2 cup fresh/frozen coconut
A pinch asafoetida
2 tbl spn dalia
3-4 green chilies
3-4 strands coriander leaves
1/4 tea spn tamarind extract
Salt

Method:
Grind all together to a paste.

Serving :
Use any normal dosa batter to make dosas (you can use urad dal dosa, benne dosa or any others).
Stuff the stuffing and fold the dosa. Serve with chutney.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins
