791. Masala Dosai
Dosa are Indian pancakes make with a fermented rice batter. Masala dosai are supposed to be those pancakes topped with spicy potato, onions and peas. In my world, ‘topped’ translated to ‘smothered in a dump truck sized portion’ which of course made the pancake break into bits and the whole thing ended up as a big, messy smoosh on my plate. But presentation isn’t everything right?
The potato, onion and pea part was yummy. It was basically like samosa filling on a large scale, and spicy potatoey things always float my boat as the potato absorbs all the spices and just gets really tasty. The dosa I’m still undecided about. The taste was just so unusual that it was hard to decide if I liked it or not. In theory I felt like it should have been like Ethiopian injera (which I love but haven’t had recently enough to feature on the blog yet), but there was something different about it that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I think I shall have to give them a second try.
