As I have mentioned in my earlier post that I’m lost without having sufficient dosa batter in my fridge. It’s a MUST for me as it makes my life easier as I can bribe my son in helping me out with housecleaning. All I need to do is just heat my tava and prepare crispy dosas drizzled with ghee he will be next to me in seconds.
Summer is here!!! The warm wind, the long evenings, the smell of the ice cream, the sweet Paddles and Vacations time for the kids to explore the world around ,experience new things, and make lasting memories. This year we decided to enroll the kids for swimming and I’m running around like crazy and theses dosa batter comes in handy preventing me from getting tensed from all those screaming by the kids -“I’m hungry I need food”.
My MIL makes the perfect crispy dosas and I can never reach that spot but I’m not a bad dosa maker either. Before marriage I couldn’t get a perfect shaped dosas at all. After hopeless failures and criticism I managed to prepare perfectly shaped crispy dosas with my magical touch. From time to time I tried to add some colors to the dosas. Chopped onions, mixed colored peppers, chopped tomatoes coriander leaves or even sprinkling of spicy home made podi gives more flavors instead of plain dosas. Following recipe feature few of the various dosas loved by my family. Just don prepare normal dosas add veggies to create a healthy version for everyone to try. Til then happy cooking guys and don forget to stay tune for more dishes from my kitchen to yours!!!
