Dosai Meal

$8.50 · 2 Reviews

After being swept off my feet by British Indian food in London, I've been trying to expose myself to more of what South Asia has to offer.

I was introduced to a proper dosai only today, at none other than the legendary Komala Vilas chain. Sure enough, I took an instant liking to the crisp and "tangy" Paper Dosai ($4.40), served with a simple trio of sambar and chutney.

Dosai will appear in my dreams tonight.

My eyes were almost as ginormous as this thosai when it landed in front of me. I remember thinking to myself, "Thank goodness I didn't order the masala potato thosai!" Even then, I couldn't finish this plain one.
Inspired by the ambience of this old, slightly grungy but vibrant eatery, I decided to eat sans cutlery. Using my fingers, I tore off pieces of the thosai and swished them in turn through each of the dhals and curries before shoving the sopping yumminess into my mouth. What a fun and flavourful experience!
