Let the veggies get well roasted for 2 minutes.
Now you transfer this on a plate.

Cut the dosa into quarters with a Pizza cutter or sharp knife.
Serve hot with any side dish like chutney or sambar.
This dosa does not need side dish since it tastes yummy to have plain.
Before spreading the vegetables you can also spread a tea spoon of any mint or coriander chutney on the dosa and sprinkle the veggies to make it spicy.

Since the veggies are topped it needs more time to get roasted than the regular dosa to get crispy.
