    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #256 DOSA DEN RECIPE : RAGI DOSA/ FINGER MILLET DOSA What is Ragi Dosa? First of all, let me explain what a dosa is. Dosa is a flatbread or pancake more like a crepe that is the staple breakfast in the South Indian Cuisine. Ragi Dosa is dosa made using ragi or finger millet. The fermented batter is spread on a flat pan or tawa into a thin circular crepe or pancake like dosa. Having said that, you will find that dosa is available in any nook and cranny part of India.

    EVENT: FOODIEMONDAY/BLOGHOP THEME: #241 FLATBREAD FIESTA What is a Flatbread?  Generally, flatbreads are made with flour, salt or no salt and water. The dough is either rolled out and then roasted or grilled or its spread out with a ladle like as in crepes, dosa, chila or its patted onto the griddle pan or tawa using your hands like as in a thalipeeth.

    EVENT: DESI BLOGGERS CONNECT THEME: FARALATDESIBLOGGERSCONNECT Growing up I had known only one Navratri the one that falls around the months of September/October. Its when we put on our chaniya chilis or saris and spent hours dancing, usually the garba and dandiya.

    EVENT: MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON#92 THEME: A-Z  FLATBREADS AND MORE – INDIAN FLATBREADS – ROUND UP India has a huge variety of flatbreads – rotis, puris, parathas, bhakris, dosas, chilas, batti, litti etc. Most of these are consumed in every household either for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Some states prefer flatbreads to rice while some need both. It is believed that the humble roti may have originated from Persia where it was made using refined flour. The wheat version was started in the state of Awadh. A more coarser flour was used back then and shaped into a katori or bowl to hold the curry. It was considered a poor man’s diet, not needing an utensil to hold the curry. Yet old texts do mention roti…
