Can anybody hate Dosa? Do you?

Hatting dosa!! howcome!! Just one bite, that’s all we will fall in love with them.Dosas are such a knockout item of the day. I often dream of starting my own Dosa Resturant here, having freshly cooked dosas with all kinds of filling inside them. There is one already in New York, New Jersey area, called ‘Dosa Express’, which boasts about 50 different types of dosas - all kinds, from just plain dosa to dosas with variety of fillings, like cheese-potato curry combo etc., But if you ask me, nothing can beat the old classic, ‘Masala Dosa’. Crisp dosas filled with potato curry, if that’s not enough they are served with coconut chutney and a cup of sambhar.
