CARROLL GARDENS — A popular south Indian food stall at Smorgasburg is opening its first brick-and-mortar shop soon on Court Street.
Dosa Royale — known for its dosas, or crispy Indian pancakes made with black lentils and rice batter — will open next month at 316 Court St., the former home of Levant, a Middle Eastern restaurant.
Carroll Gardens couple Heather and Thiru Rajamani, who own Dosa Royale along with Fort Greene Italian restaurant Dino, will also bring their recipes to Smorgasburg's new spot at Pier 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, as first reported by Grubstreet.
The dosas, which can be made with spinach and homemade paneer, curried potatoes and mixed vegetables including cabbage, carrots and green beans, will be served at both the restaurant and the outdoor market, Heather Rajamani said. They are accompanied by coconut and tomato chutney.
Diners can also expect pea-and-potato samosas, south Indian breads and thalis, a meal that includes small portions of several dishes including curries, vegetables, rice and a dessert.
The Court Street spot will serve primarily vegetarian food but will also feature a few non-vegetarian specials.
Dosas will be priced at $8 to $10.
