Set Dosa

The specialty of South especially Karnataka. This makes a good option for lunch box or travel box as it stays soft for a long time, unlike the other dosas. Also make a tasty option when paired / sprinkled with spicy podi. It is traditionally served with sagoo ( a mix kurma type veggie) I served here with red chutney

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
