Dosa Kitchen unveils new menu as celebrities pop in

A Newcastle restaurant praised by celebrities in recent weeks has unveiled a new menu.

Dosa Kitchen on Osborne Road, Jesmond was praised by Place in the Sun presenter Jonnie Irwin on social media for its Southern Indian food. The restaurant is also a firm favourite of Hairy Biker, Si King, who is a regular visitor.

The new menu is filled with the flavours and food traditions of Southern India.

The dosas – a thin, lace-like pancake – are served on their own; with sambhar – a lentil and vegetable stew with two chutneys; or with a range of fillings including spicy onions, potato masala or grated paneer and coriander.

Main courses include fish, meat, vegetarian and vegan curries alongside a number of biriyani, rice and breads.

The restaurant also offers a number of Tuk Tuk Kothu Parota – a flaky bread which is ripped up and mixed with a number of ingredients and spices.

Co-owner Sudharsan Murugavel said: “We have kept many of our most popular dishes, but we’ve added new options for people to try. Southern Indian cuisine is very different to what most people’s experience of Indian food is. It tends to be much healthier as we don’t cook with lots of butter or cream – it’s all about the spicing.

“It has gone down extremely well so far and of course we were absolutely delighted with the reaction we had from Jonnie Irwin, who loved it so much that he mentioned Dosa Kitchen on his social media. We are really looking forward to welcoming new guests to sample what we have to offer.”
