Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!


Embark on a flavorful journey with Q Bistro as we delve into the culinary marvel that is Thosai.

Rooted in Indian tradition yet beloved worldwide, Thosai captivates with its crispy texture, savory fillings, and aromatic spices.

At the heart of Thosai lies a meticulous process that begins with a blend of rice and lentil flour.

Therefore, this unique batter undergoes an overnight fermentation, allowing it to develop its distinctive flavors and textures.

Expert chefs at Q Bistro skillfully scoop the batter onto a flat cooking surface, spreading it into thin, crepe-like pancakes.

The result? Thosai is crispy, golden, and utterly delicious.

Exploring Thosai’s Versatility

Indulge in the rich and aromatic flavors of Thosai Masala, a hearty blend of flour and potato filling infused with a medley of spices.

This filling breakfast option is guaranteed to kickstart your day on a delicious note.

You can also experience the unique nutty flavors of Thosai Ghee.

Unlike traditional Thosai, Thosai Ghee is made from fermented rice and lentil batter, our Thosai is cooked to perfection on a hot griddle until golden brown and crispy, then generously brushed with clarified butter (ghee) for added richness and flavor.

Furthermore, delight in the crispy perfection of Pan Thosai (Uttapam), a thin and delicate variation spread incredibly thin on the pan.

Despite its delicate appearance, Pan Thosai offers a satisfying crunch and is often served in a cone shape for added flair.

Elevate your Thosai experience with Thosai Telur, featuring a fluffy scrambled egg topping that adds richness and depth to every bite.

Perfect for those looking for a hearty and indulgent meal.

Another menu is Pan Thosai Bawang (Uttapam), Thosai Bawang, Thosai Biasa, and Thosai Telur Bawang.
