Instant Dosa Mix
Dosai, Thosai, Dosa or Masala Dosa, the thin, crisp crepe or pancake from India, is a delicious Indian breakfast. The product has several variants and is very popular as one of the main breakfast food in most of the parts of south India. They are usually served as main course of breakfast with coffee or tea. They are made from black gram, rice, fenugreek, salt and asafoetida. Traditional Dosai batter is fermented over night (8 hours minimum). The batter is spread on a greased griddle and cooked till one of the surfaces in contact with the griddle becomes golden brown.
A curry of Potato, onion, and other vegetables (optional) is placed in the middle of the dosai and the dosai is covered by rolling dosai around the curry into a tube.
