Dosa – Paper Masala
I tried out Dosa as part of completing my 7×7 food checklist for San Francisco. The 7×7 list recommends the Paper Masala. Here I’m thinking Paper Masala dosa sounds like a cute little origami type dish served with chutneys.
Out comes this giant dosa (a savory rice and lentil crepe), served with tomato & fresh coconut chutney, sambar (a flavorful lentil dipping soup made with vegetables), and spiced Indian potatoes, onions and cashew nuts.
I was completely speechless when it came out. The dosa had to be at least 24” in diameter. The tomato chutney was my favorite. It had enough spice to keep me going but it drowned the flavor of the coconut chutney. The lentil dipping soup reminded me of a black bean soup I had the other day…without the pork fat…so it needed a little salt for my taste buds.
The combination of the dosa, potatoes, and chutneys was a perfect match. The flavors complimented each other well. Overall, this is a fun dish to eat. You should definitely try the Paper Masala when you visit Dosa.
Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
