Thosai and Aloo

Thosai, sometimes referred to as Dosa, is a common bread eaten by Indians around the world. Thosai are made with fermented rice and hulled beans called urad dal. They are cooked in a flat pan, or tawa. Any low sided, flat skillet will do.

Vasunthara comes from a thosai (also known as dosa) and chutney making family.  She has perfected the art. Her video on the process will have you making them every chance you get.

There are many videos on chutneys and other Indian breads and condiments to go with them. Every week we release new Dosa Day videos, and new FryDay videos.

Achar means pickle. Emily Chia makes pickled potatoes – you could substitute radishes or other vegetables like cauliflower – using a very Indian technique that uses heavily seasoned hot oil poured over vegetables to pickle them.
