The Daring Cooks: Indian dosas
Those of you who have been hanging around here for a while may have noticed a few changes on my site! I’ve finally gotten around to updating a few things. Hopefully this won’t be the end of the changes, but it is a slow (but maybe steady?) process. Either way, I’m hoping to take this blog out of the dark ages!
Now, on to the important stuff. This month’s Daring Cooks challenge is Indian dosas! I really love Indian food, yet I often find myself thinking I can’t make it because all of the Indian students I work with bring back spices from home to cook with. This month I discovered that while I may be limited from making a few dishes due to lack of adequate spices, I am definitely not eliminated from the realm of Indian cooking. Most of the spices have actually become pretty commonplace in even the most rural of supermarkets.
I found the dosas to be not only delicious but fun to make! They were basically like Indian crepes made by swirling the batter through the pan. The only changes I made to the recipe were the addition of a hot pepper to kick up the heat a bit and the use of raw zucchini instead of cucumber (a slight mistake in my quick refrigerator review before going to the market…but I went with it 🙂 ).
This was a great choice from Debyi from The Healthy Vegan Kitchen! To check out the recipe, just head over to the Daring Kitchen.
