Tomato Dosa

Why is it that most of us(or is it just me?) run out of breakfast ideas.

Although I like to try out different cuisines I often find the South Indian breakfast cuisine easiest to put together. Agreed the grinding past may be a bit cumbersome , but once you have that out of the way, the next couple of days are tension free….

Take for instance this variety of dosa that I found on Shailaja’s super duper blog.

Its real simple to make, in fact it doesn’t even need fermentation…

Its got great colour( always a good thing when your target group includes children) and is healthy too…
Plus its different from the regular fare…

I served this with podi, but I’m sure any chutneys will do just great.
