The recipe came in 3 parts, the dosas, which are a type of bread, the filling, and the sauce. As you can imagine it was time consuming. I made the following substitutions: I used whole wheat flour instead of spelt flour in the dosas and sauce; substituted the almond milk for coconut milk (since I was already using it for the sauce); because I could not find hot banana chiles, I substiuted jalapenos in the filling. I served the dosas with basmati rice, sliced cucumber, and grated coconut.
I loved this meal! Mr. G did not feel the same, and I’m sure that’s because it didn’t have any meat plus I found out that he doesn’t eat much curry. That’s okay, because I had leftover filling, sauce, and rice for lunch for about 3 days after making it. It always made my office smell so wonderful!
Actually the smells reminded me of my trip to South Africa in 2007 where one of our stops was in Durban, a city that has a large Indian presence. To round off this post, here are some pics from my trip.
