Sarita! WONDERFUL recipe. YUM love dosa of all types. My mum has two girls from Bangalore (actually Bangalore & Kerela) staying with her for 2 months and they made masala dosa recently which mum loves. Last night they made sambhar and idli. I had suggested they use her egg poacher which worked perfectly. Mum was confused by the "tough celery"-ie drumstick VBG-she is 84 and had never eaten this. Shanti/Mary-Anne

Thank you very much Shanti. I love drumstick. That gives a nice fragrance to sambar. But I have also not seen fresh drumsticks after coming here. I don't prefer using frozen one.

Your dosa looks yummy. What kind of frying pan do you use? I have an electric non-stick frying pan. I am hesitant to spread oil using the back of a spoon and use a spray mist bottle called Misto. How much oil do you use per dosa?
