Masala Dosa..

Masala Dosa.. From past few weeks I was craving for Masala Dosa and Medu Vada very badly. I was not at all getting sleep in the night because I use to get dreams of Masala Dosa. Was feeling very lazy to go out and eat. For me it is bit difficult to eat all this stuff out side, because they use lot of oil and it becomes taste less when you tell them to cook oil-less, for that reason only I was stopping myself to eat out. Though my hubby kept telling me lets go and eat out..

Yesterday morning I though it was a high time now I should cook dosa at home only. The first thing I did in the morning was I soaked rice and dal to make the batter for dosa and vada. Then finished all the other activities like making red chutney, coconut chutney and potato paliya.. Then finally I cooked the dosa and vada for the dinner and ate peacefully.. It was tasting awesome and I was feeling like top of the world and so satisfying.. I din't even bother to take the pictures but some how I told myself to wait and clicked few picture just to post it.. Thought the pictures are not up to the mark but it is fine, will change the pictures later...
