Dosa has become one of the most popular recipes in Indian fast-food joints and restaurants. Ever wondered where dosa originated from? The researches have claimed that they have the recorded dosa recipe from the earliest of Tamil and Kannada literary works. While the thicker dosas originated from Tamil Nadu, the thinner and crispier ones are recorded to have originated in Karnataka. Nevertheless, we love a variety of dosa batter recipes that have spread beyond the boundaries of South India ever since.
Is this because of the ease of getting the batter done, with added idle times of soaking and fermentation, or because of the ease of spreading the foamy dosa batter on the hot sizzling tawa; because of the roasted golden colour of the dosa when flipped, or because of the delicious side dishes that goes so apt, one simply will love the experience of making dosa batter and eating homemade dosas.
Like us, any dosa lover would demand the dosa just when it feels right to have it; exactly when the craving arises. When you want to hear the sizzle of roasting dosa, or the fragrance of ghee melting in it while it is roasted; the divine taste it combines when had along with a variety of chutneys, dunked in sambar, scooping out a chunk of bright yellow potato palya, or with a milagai podi.
The largest of the drawbacks of most dosa recipes is the soaking time and fermentation. The time to wait and the time we must plan to have this hot dosas is a sort of put down in this case. When we have unexpected relatives visiting home in the early evening, dosa is one of the options to serve them dearly. Or when you have woke up late in the morning or when you want to minimise the work of preparing side dishes or a complicated main course for lunch box. These instant dosa recipes come to your rescue when you immediately need dosas to be served.
