Aali Pota Dosai ~ 101 Dosa Varieties!

I know you must be wondering on the strange name right. Well the name literally means "scoping into" when translated from Tamil. And this dosa ends up to being soft and spongy. The proportion is different from the Soft Dosa or Kal Dosa that Amma makes.

She got this from a paper clipping and I asked her again and again if she read it right. Well she said there was no other name and in the recipe description, they talk about throwing in fistful of the ingredients. Anyways after trying it out, it turned out to be good, and the combination was also quite new. 

This was supposed to be served with Puli Chutney or Tamarind Chutney. The chutney was quite sour and with a spongy dosa, it ended up being soaked up. This joins the 101 Dosa Club.
