Background

Dosas/ Indian crepes are South Indian delicacy and a staple food in South India also a must-have breakfast for Deepavali. But I haven’t come across a single Indian who doesn’t like dosas. They are ridiculously delicious and can be enjoyed any time of the day – be it breakfast , lunch , dinner or mid day snack. Dosas are quite famous among the non – indians too . Restaurants worldwide have these beautiful Indian crepes on their menu and its very popular by everyone. They are made various ways and comes with  fillings too and are considered healthy and appetizing.  A very light snack and easy to digest. Dosas can be served along with chutney and sambar. Goes well with a cup of coffee too. Yummy and enjoy cooking!!
