When the top part looks cooked add chutney on the dosa quickly. Since the chutney is already cooked you add the required quantity if veggies, paneer, cheese, salt, garam masala powder. Spread the veggies and chutney on the dosa and drizzle few drops of oil and allow it to cook in medium flame. When sides start to brown. Cut the dosa vertically into 3 to 4 portions using pizza cutter/ knife according to the size of the dosa. Now roll each portion tightly as we don't want the dosa to break or spill the filling. Now serve it with chutney or sambar immediately as the dosa will become soggy after a while.
