A dosa is a lentil and rice crepe/pancake, typically with a vegetable filling and an accompaniment of chutney. Made solely from lentils and rice, it is delicious, hearty, and nutritious. Our goal is to make this beloved southern Indian staple a tasty and healthy addition to DC-area quick food offerings.
Our dosas are vegan and gluten free—a perfect choice for anyone interested in healthy living and those with food sensitivities. Our dosa batter is made fresh and the dosas are cooked to order. The fillings and chutneys are also made using all fresh ingredients. No frozen foods, processed products, or preservatives are ever used. Our spices are roasted and ground in-house. Whenever feasible, we use organic produce.
We invite you to come experience our dosas. All of our recipes are old family ones, tweaked to incorporate local seasonal ingredients.
Our regular menu features:
- Four-Lentil Dosa – four lentils with garlic, fennel and red chilies in the batter
- Petite Yellow Lentil Dosa – yellow lentils with ginger and red chilies in the batter
- Whole Mung Lentil Dosa – mung lentils with ginger, cumin and red chilies in the batter

To drink, we offer lassis, the perfect beverage to accompany dosas! This traditional drink is made with fruit, yogurt, buttermilk, honey and spices. Our lassi offering rotates based on what’s in season. Enjoy!
