Kerala Masala Dosa, is one of the healthiest breakfast from South India. Though some love to have it for dinner or even lunch these days. Crispy flaky dosa is filled with mashed potatoes seasoned with spices and served with sambar or chutney. Read more about Masala Dosa on Wikipedia.
Today, while going through my draft pictures I found this Masala Dosa pic which I had taken almost a year ago, I usually make them during weekends for dinner...and this pic was taken in the night...as I have mentioned earlier that I use point and shoot cam for all my pictures in the blog....it is difficult to take pictures during night...somehow, I got this click...which I guess is presentable :) and as I sat down today to write this post, I was surprised that I had completely forgotten about posting this easy, healthy, and filling meal, though I make it at least once a week. Its one of my favorite right from childhood.
Masala dosa is the most popular breakfast of Kerala, you got to any vegetarian or even non-vegetarian hotel, you can can find it in the menu.....though each one has their own distinct taste. I like masala dosa of Indian coffee house, which has branches all across the country...next time try an Indian Coffee House Masala Dosa.
