What is a Dosa?
A Dosa is a South Indian Pancake made with fermented lentils, rice and spices. The batter is cooked in a pan. We then top ours with curry, rice, dal, chutney, chilli sauce, fermented and pickled vegetables.
Dosa are traditionally eaten for breakfast but can be eaten at any time of day, including lunch, dinner and for a snack.
We make our pancake batter from fermented idli rice, powa rice and urad dal (black lentils). Fenugreek seeds and a pinch of salt are also added.
We soak them, grind them, and then leave the mixture to ferment, creating a unique savoury tasting batter.
Our Dosa are
The traditional curry is a Sambar Curry from Southern India. We offer you this, and our own curry blends.
We use our own blend of spices, developed to our own taste.
Depending on what's in season and our suppliers, the fresh vegetables we use in our curries varies.
Dal, Rice & Chutney
We serve our Dosa with a golden Turmeric Dal, made with fresh turmeric and ginger.
We add even more flavour with our fragrant rice, using whole spices and curry leaves.
We add extra freshness with a coconut, lime & coriander chutney.
Ferments & Pickles
All the little extra toppings add a bit of zing, and flavour.
We ferment and pickle the veggies ourselves, including scrummy carrot & ginger.
Plus we ferment our own chilli sauce too. And when we're in the mood we make a scotch bonnet chilli sauce for the slightly more 'heat resistant' customers that we have.
