Davangere has become synonymous with a famous variety of Dosa, known as Benne Dose or ‘Butter Dose’. In fact, several eateries have played a pivotal role in “introducing and popularizing” the Davangere Benne Dosa in Bengaluru. While this delicious creation has been replicated aka commercialized across most of the dosa-camps in Bengaluru. Sri Guru Kottureshwara Benne Dosa Hotel is the undoubted champion of the authentic Davangere Benne Dose. Here we bring to you this paradise of Benne Dose.
What is Benne Dose?
Benne Dose is essentially a crispy dosa cooked on a wood-fired stove with generous amounts of butter served with potato palya (made of boiled mashed potatoes) and spicy coconut chutney. This dose can be identified by large holes formed on the surface as a result of the carbon dioxide formed while the baking soda mixes with the rice batter. Add a lot of butter to this and you get an aroma so intoxicating that you’ll forget everything else!
Why Sri Guru Kottureshwara Benne Dosa Hotel?
Sri Guru Kottureshwara Benne Dosa Hotel has been the undisputed champion of the Davangere Benne Dose. The dose here tends to be crisp and thin, rather than fluffy. The crisp is what we all desire in our dose. The single dosa that arrives is chocolate-brown, paper-thin and is accompanied with a spicy helping of the palya and some chutney. A dish so divine, you can gobble it up in minutes! Having served this delicacy for the last 20 years, they definitely know how to stir up emotions with their tasty food!
Their menu is simple and minimal. It is small, but perfect, with just three amazingly delicious delicacies. The delicacies are – Khali Dose, Benne Dose (Single) and Benne Dose ( 2 per plate). They focus on what they’re best at, and the fact that they cannot keep count of how many doseys they serve in a day is a testimony to their level of perfection.
You’ll need to brace yourself for a 20-30 minute waiting period. A necessary waiting period so that you get to enjoy their delicacies once the table has been cleared and it’s your turn to eat.
