Should this be done long back,but late neverthless.I have this one Masala dosai obsessed male in home,who runs out of choices in restaurants and times other than a blue moon,ticks Masala dosai.(My father even belongs to this category)

I guess there are a lot obsessed with masala dosai(Hi ramesh),but who don’t live in a Masala dosai  free country as mine.This one is a Special sunday edition for them.

When a golden shining Masala dosai,comes along with White,red,green chutneys and  Sambar with its special aroma,the appetite would get increased manifolds.Laying hands on this beautiful dish soon after it has arrived,never does a justice to its beauty,its preferrable that you keep a minute to enjoy the bulged center which houses masala and the golden crispy edge,never miss those sidedishes.

Am not with those who separate masala and eat the dosa alone or make masala as a side dish for this dosa.I know someone who orders masala dosa,but never wants masala,could it be bcoz of that tenderness the masala offers to dosa?

I would like one masala dosa which is not paper thin or utter thick as one utthapam,the thickness of the Masala dosa should be medium so that it can house the masala graciously and yet crispy.The masala should not be very thick or too mushy to enjoy it,a lighter consistency is appreciated though,considering it doesn’t make the generous dosa soggy,which had afterall given it a room.

Masala dosa can be eaten very much plain,still sambar makes a good company(pls remember Saravana Bhavan Sambar),though hotels these days offer too much of chutneys(Recollect what Murugan idly shop offers).

These days there are many variants to masala dosai from the plain potato as Cauliflower,Paneer,cheese etc., nothing can win over the original,Whaddaya say?(I still like Paneer)

Once it was that i longed for some Indian food that i paid 10 Pounds for one Masala dosai,which no way could match the original back home.

Due to laziness i prepare Masala dosa out of that Potato podimas remaining after lunch for dinner,i know am not doing justice to Masala dosa,but still i can give him one home made version.

Pls be kind enough to throw your views on Masala dosai Mahimai.
