Trader Joes Masala Dosa

Have you tried Trader Joe’s Masala Dosa Authentic Indian appetizers?

We love the spicy flavor of Indian food, and when we saw these taco like snacks, we bought a box right away!

The wraps are made of rice a rice crepe – and rice make a great wrapper for the filling of  spicy potatoes and onions.  The filling was fantastic! It had just enough spice so you know you are eating Indian food, but not too much that you cannot taste anything, at least that is what we thought.

The Masala Dosa come with a package of coconut curry, which was wonderful and a little sweet from the coconut and cooling from all the spices in the potato and onion filling.

They were super easy to cook, all you needed to do was heat on a pan lined with foil (check the package for time and temperature) and then heat up the coconut curry sauce in a little boiling water to thaw it. (We like to use a mug with some hot water,  drop the pouch in, and then allow to heat up while the masala dosa are heating in the oven).

As you can see from the picture, our Masala Dosa got a bit toasty in the oven and this gave the rice crepes a nice crunchy texture to contrast the smooth center.

As a note:

As we ate these yummy Masala Dosa (with a salad for a nice lunch) we thought that the coconut curry sauce served COLD would have made a nice addition to the warm Indian tacos and will thaw the coconut curry sauce briefly and then chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

A second note, would be to lightly oil the tin foil as our rice crepes stuck in a few places. gggrrrr

    I wanted to like these…I really did, but I was quite disappointed in the texture of the dosas and the flavor of the coconut curry chutney. 🙁

    Try baking them on parchment paper. I did, they definitely did not stick at all 🙂
    Wish there was more chutney and a bit more flavor in the chutney. I did enjoy the flavor of the dosas and thought the price was a screaming deal for 1.99 for the package.

    I just wanted to note… the instructions say to just microwave the chutney for 30s to defrost it, but not warm it! It works really well.. It is best served cold, so please don’t heat it up.

    I love TJ’s Masala Dosas, but the small coconut curry sauce packet is not enough to go around. I mix the packet with a few ounces of TJs Light Coconut Milk. Problem solved.

    I love these Dosas! I eat them at work for lunch and we don’t have any fancy cooking devices here, so what i do is put them on a plate, put another plate upside-down on top to cover it and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes, flipping them over once halfway through. Then i let them sit and cool. The thicker part in the middle doesn’t get crispy, but the outer edges get a little crispy just from cooking in the microwave. This method is NOT for everyone, and i should say that i’m not super picky about how stuff is cooked. BUT… I cook them this way, and it’s a little healthier because you’re not adding oil. And i love them. So there. 🙂

    I love these! I cooked them in the microwave for 45 seconds each and then put some oil in a pan and fried them for a couple minutes on each side, they were absolutely delicious. Are they available anymore?
