British Indian Restaurant Recipe Requests / Massala Dosa
« on: July 24, 2007, 10:03 PM »
Does anyone have any info on this item.  From what I can gather it is a vegetarian item which consists mainly of a large flat rice crepe.  It is my brothers favourite dish, he lives in Canada so it is not his fault, and I would so love to surprise him with this item next time he comes over.  Not all BIRs offer this, as I belive that the indian provinces that it originates from is not overly popular here, unlike the typical massala or madras etc.  I also believe that it is cooked on a special surface and is filled with potato, and you have coconut side dish. It is really good with a sambar ? which is a lentil based sauce, apparently.

Hello there.  I would just like to start off by introducing myself, hello, and telling you a little about me.  I live in England where we have many fine BIR's, in fact we are pretty spoilt for choice.  A few years back whilst visiting my brother in Canada, I was horrified to find that not only didnt the local indian restaurants deliver  :o  but they also tasted completely different to ours.  Not too bad, but not a touch on ours.  Thus was the start of my quest, to make a curry as good as out takeaways for my brother in Canada, and the birth of a new breed of superhero, Spencerman!  My goal was to seek out that secret that makes a decent british curry.  I have serched high and low, and like many others before me have tried countless recipies, not all bad, but none capturing that 'authentic' taste.

My quest recently did a shap turn after a mate of mine, who had an evening job delivering curries, told me about this pot that was kept on the boil which formed the starting block to all the curries, which I now understand to be the base.  I had never heard of this before, and this is what lead to me searching the internet, and eventually to the end of my quest, here.

I think that having just tried Darths 100% madras, that my quest is now over, and what a nice curry that was.  I am looking forward to trying many others, and hopefully to welcoming my brother to this forum soon.

Many thanks to all who share there knowledge,
