Description

A plate of plain dosai with sambar is a classic and beloved South Indian meal. Here’s a more detailed description:

Plain Dosai: Dosai is a versatile and iconic South Indian dish that starts with a batter made from a mixture of rice and urad dal (black gram). The batter is fermented, which gives dosai its distinct tangy flavor and airy texture. It’s a thin, circular crepe that’s cooked to perfection on a hot griddle, resulting in a crispy, golden-brown exterior and a soft, slightly sour interior. The dosai has a mild, slightly nutty taste and is a staple in South Indian cuisine.

Sambar: Sambar is a flavorful lentil-based soup or stew that’s a staple in South Indian and Sri Lankan cuisine. It’s made with Toor dal (pigeon pea lentils) and a mix of vegetables like drumsticks, eggplant, tomatoes, and okra. The broth is seasoned with a special sambar spice blend, which includes ingredients like tamarind, asafetida, and curry leaves. The result is a slightly spicy, tangy, and savory soup with a medley of vegetable textures. Sambar provides a delightful contrast to the Desai’s mild flavor and is often served with it to enhance the overall dining experience.

Set of 5 Pieces: When served as a set of five dosai, it’s a generous portion that can easily satisfy your hunger. Each dosai is typically folded into a triangular shape or rolled up, making them easy to dip into the sambar or enjoy with coconut chutney on the side.

The combination of plain dosai and sambar offers a harmonious blend of flavors and textures. The crispy dosai complements the hearty and aromatic sambar, making it a favorite comfort food in South India and among food enthusiasts worldwide. It’s not only a delicious dish but also a representation of the rich culinary heritage of the region.
