Daring Cooks Challenge: Indian Dosas

The Daring Cooks was hosted by Debyi of The Healthy Vegan Kitchen. She embraced alternative cooks everywhere by giving us a vegan, gluten-free, 99% oil free challenge: Indian Dosas. Click the link to get the recipe.

I learned a dosa is a pancake:

Which I stuffed with a garbonzo bean filling:

And topped with a curry sauce:

Like so:

They were good. I felt the filling was too salty, which may have been my bad because I used garbonzo beans from a batch I cooked up a couple weeks ago and froze. I don't remember if I added salt to them and didn't taste them before I used them. Oops.

I make Indian food about once a week--it's condusive to a vegetarian diet--and I loved having pancakes instead of rice for a change.

That said, my family prefers the dal I make from How To Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bitman. You know, one of those recipes that takes about five minutes to whip up and then you let it simmer for a bit and it's done.


They appreciate a good adventure, they just don't appreciate the dish clean-up. Which makes no sense at all since I washed all the dishes.

Thanks Debyi for the recipe. The pancakes are a keeper!
