Cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai are leading the dosa charge. Bangalore, the Dosa capital of India, has not only topped the chart but also outshone other major cities, ordering twice dosas than Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata combined. In a surprising turn of events, Chandigarh, known for its love for buttery parathas, has embraced the mighty Masala Dosa as its favourite dish. Dosa was also among the most ordered dishes in Ranchi, Coimbatore, Pune, and Bhopal.

"My love for dosa knows no bounds!” A testament to the fervour for dosas, a single user from Coimbatore emerged as the dosa champion of the country, ordering a whopping 447 plates of dosas in the past year.

Dosa was the second most ordered dish during Ramzan, cricket world cup and the IPL, and the top veg dish ordered during the Navratri season.

As expected, the prime time for dosa cravings is during breakfast hours followed by dinner. Chennai shines as the city with the strongest affinity towards dosas to dinner, while Hyderabad contributed to solidifying dosa’s position as a favourite snack-time dish.

Jab tak rahega dose mein aloo... Among the myriad dosa variants, the classic Masala Dosa emerges as the crowd favourite across India, followed by Plain Dosa, Set Dosa, Onion Dosa and Butter Masala Dosa.

Dosa, Dosai, Dosey or Dosha, whatever one may like to call it, there are numerous variants available on Swiggy across India, showcasing the incredible diversity and creativity in this beloved South Indian dish. From the classic Sada and Masala Dosa to innovative creations like Chocolate Dosa, Pav Bhaji Noodles Palak Dosa, Schezwan Chop Suey Special Dosa, Dilkhush Dosa, Lays Dosa and American Chopsey Dosa with Paneer, dosas have evolved into a canvas for culinary experimentation, blending traditional flavours with modern twists.
