While everything was quiet here in Bahrain this weekend, we celebrated Indian-style! On Saturday, we had a ‘Dosa party’ brunch. Gracy made some delicious dosa (a rice-based dosa and a bean-based dosa) with scrumptious toppings. If you are not familiar with dosa, I guess the closest thing to it would be pancakes (but it’s more savoury than sweet).
You can see some of the selection in the photo above.
The lighter-coloured type of dosa is made from brown rice, urid dhal (white lentils) and fenugreek. Everything is soaked in water the day before, then blended, then cooked like pancakes. I don’t know too many cooking details because I still cannot make it myself.
The other type of dosa is made from a blend of different beans and lentils, which are also soaked and blended and then cooked like pancakes.
To go with that, we had some lovely toppings: hummus and zaatar, a mint dip, a coriander/coconut chutney, eggplant/lentil sauce, and some potato mash. Oh, and some honey as well. They were all D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!
I would highly recommend you go Indian over your next holiday. Yum!
That’s all from me for today…
