Long before the advent of American fast food, there was the dosa --- a crispy crepe made of mixed rice and lentils. This crunchy, tangy wrapper perfectly complements an inventive array of light yet savory fillings that elevate the humble Indian breakfast staple to a perfect quick lunch or dinner.
The art of making perfect dosas begins with the right consistency and proper fermentation of the batter, but the ultimate test is in the cooking technique. Students will get hands-on practice and techniques to make perfect dosas and to prepare accompaniments.
This class is also an excellent opportunity to familiarize you with the jewels of the Indian pantry --- ghee, urad dal, toor dal, asafetida, fenugreek seeds, mango powder, tamarind paste, dried coconut, green chilies, and curry leaves. These crepes are satisfying in a way that no burrito or wrap ever could be!
