The nation is struggling to cope with the second wave of the Covid pandemic. India’s steep rise in number of active cases and mortality rate has become a hot topic of debate around the world. As a means to contain and break the chain of infection, many states and districts have announced partial lockdowns and curfews. Health experts are also advising everyone to stay at home in this hour of crisis.. After last year’s lockdown, it should not be that much of a problem too. Cooking proved to be a good distraction then, cooking could help lift up yours spirits this time too, provided you give it a chance. This chicken dosa is quite easily one of the best recipes we have experimented with in past couple of days.
Dosa is a flat, crepe-like dish that hails from South India. Its simplicity has made it popular across the country. Dosas could be made with a variety of batters, it could be plain or stuffed. Dosa is typically paired with sambhar or chutney. There are many ‘modern’ variations of dosas like cheese dosas and chocolate dosas that require no accompaniments at all. Chicken dosa also features in the same club of ‘loaded dosas’, but it is the ‘desi’ elements used in the dosa that makes it so lovable.
