Continuing on the Dosa Celebration, today’s special is this Mixed Dal Dosa. This mixed dal dosa is Athamma’s pure innovation. On Sunday, when I was telling her that the next 10 days might see a lot of dosas for breakfast, she said she doesn’t want those dosas based on rice. She remembered Amma making some dal dosa and said it was so tasty. Since it was 11.30 in the night, I couldn’t think it was nice to call Amma at that time. She wouldn’t mind, though, but Dad will be after me with a stick. He already says that we both are always on the phone chatting. So having that in mind, I said I will look for more dosa recipes, mean while she has the field to play on. She was soaking pesulu for pesarattu, so she took whatever dal she could access and soaked together.
You won’t believe, but I know Athamma has just created a new variety! It was too good. I was shocked knowing what all went into this. But the best part was, Athamma went on and on, praising this variety. So I know for sure, this is going to feature again on our table. Hubby dear has a certain aversion towards Adai. When I told him that we made another variety, he wanted to know what all went on it. I said all dals. You mean Adai? he asked. I said this is not that. Anyway, I couldn’t convince him to eat this, if only he knows what he is missing. One day, after all, this crazy needs gets cleared, I will make this alone and nothing else, so he has no option but to eat! Yeah, that’s what I am going to do.
