These are so great!! I've never made dosas before, but I am no longer intimidated. I had a hard time with them at first, because the first one stuck horribly to my frying pan; I just switched to a non-stick pan and the problem was completely solved. Thank you so much for posting this novel and delicious was really hard to stop eating them!
