How about choosing from 166 different varieties of dosas? Well, don’t be surprised for Pai Dosa has just that in store for you. A paradise to all dosa-lovers, this restaurant has two outlets, one at M.G. Road and the other at Edapally. It’s a pretty good family restaurant which is open from morning 9:30 to 1:30 at night. The best time to come here is during evening and night hours.
Pai Dosa is the celebrated dosa outlet in Eranakulam. Started as a small hotel in 1987 with 36 types of dosa, this restaurant has grown over the years. Now, it has two branches and has on offer a whopping 166 varieties of dosas.
The branch of this restaurant at M.G.Road is located close to Geeri pai Jewellery with a good paid car parking area nearby. It is a vegetarian hotel with an exception for eggs. And it’s the use of egg in some of the dosa masalas that makes this place different from other eateries.
Most of the dosas here are uniquely named. While some of the dosas are named after the members of the family that runs the business, others got their name from hit movies. Like their names, the dosas are pretty intriguing at sight too. The hotel has self-service counters similar to a canteen where you need to place your order before your dosa is served hot and crispy.
‘Salt and Pepper Dosa’ is a delightful dish made of potato masala and eight quail eggs wrapped in dosa. Like its name, the little over-the-top blend of salt and pepper along with the eggs makes it a bit spicy but delectable.
‘Five-in-One Dosa’ has a special masala filling made with egg, tomato, potato, onion and garlic chutney. The dosas are served in good quantity too. ‘Chocolate Dosa’ made with chocolate and flour is an appreciable attempt but it is quite hard to finish it all by oneself .
New recipes are made by the Pai family itself and they train their chefs. Pai Dosa also has a branch in Edappally at NH 17 near Amritha Bridge. Both outlets have tried to retain a typical Brahmin hotel feel with the thick smell of sandal wood incense sticks in each whiff.
