Thakalli Cheese Dosa (tomato Cheese Dosa)

What would you do if you have dosa batter for a week? I make idlis the first day, dosas the second day, and this cheese tomato dosa the third day. It is so wholesome in itself that we do not bother making a chutney or sambar for this dosa. It is a dosa no child can refuse. So next time you have leftover dosa batter you know what to do.
