Yesterday was my perimma’s birthday..She came to my house along with perippa. I would love to share some sweet words about them..First off all I am so lucky to have all of them as my relatives..They are so caring and will do anything for us..They are the best couple too…Along with them I have another perippa and perimma too. I will take pictures of them and post soon. I am so attached to both of my perimma’s that anyone else. They are the person who care for us in real. I should definitely make some thing special for them right..I made them this crispy dosa and served it along with curry leaves chutney and sambar..How good is that..They totally enjoyed the meal. I was really happy about this.
Now coming to the recipe..It is a special dosa served in a famous hotel gowri shankar here..I make potato masala dosa often but gobi masala dosa is really new to me..But once I tried it, I came to a decision that I should make it often..It was that yummy…The masala which I made is so rich and creamy because of the cashews which we add there..You could serve that masala with roti or poori too..
I hope you will try it out and let me know what you think..I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 5 under the theme Seven Days of Dosa Recipes.
