In response



Ever since I saw this it was haunting me. I had made up my mind to go and bully the chef at the desi restaurant here to make me dosa, even though they stopped serving dosas on their menu. (I have been a loyal regular there, and he has made pongal a week after pongal just for me, and also puri-sabzi on my demand earlier). Only to find out, much to my shock, that the restaurant closed down a couple weeks ago! Without any notice. It was one of the sadder things I'd heard.

So anyways, I ambled on, and that pic continued to haunt me. Finally on Friday, I got to take my friend to the airport and we got to go and pig out at a nice desi restaurant in the city. AAAAAAAH what bliss it was. And Sujatha, my dosa had masala too! :p

Very, very happy for you TGFI! I was feeling so guilty after I read your comments on my post. Thanks for telling me when you did go eat that dosa. :))

And lord! How many dosa craving people are in this world!! Isn't it funny the day you came over to my blog to tell me that you'd eaten dosa I was waxing poetic about the dosa I had after being deprived for 5 days??!!
