Rava dosa with 5 side dishes
This week, its rather a breakfast idea than a menu, but sure its special because of the side dishes. Vj doesn’t eat dosa at home except for maida dosa, but he eats plain dosa at the restaurant. When I ask why, he will say I get 4 different side dish here. So its all about the side dishes? Ok, well, I too can make it once in a while. So for a weekend we can make it special with all these side dishes right? I can give you suggestions how to make use of it the best too. I made sambar in such a way that I can use it for lunch too. So the spiciness and tanginess will be in between, not too tangy as lunch sambar and not too mild as the tiffin sambar. And chutneys, I have explained how in the steps. Go through the post for the tips. Here is how I prepared this breakfast.
