… in our quest to ‘try out some different foodstuff this weekend’! This, by the way, is an on-going quest for the OH and me, and we don’t ever seem to get tired of it.
Back to the point of the post, we ‘found’ a dosa stall at Koramangala that boasts of not 10 or 20 but…. 99 varieties of dosa! It is located right outside the Laxmidevi Park at Koramangala, amidst several other food stalls. We have noticed this stall several times before, but somehow never tried out their wares before. It so happened last weekend that the OH and I were visiting the park and got hungry. It was a good 2 hours before dinner time, so we decided to give the dosas a try.
We didn’t see a printed menu anywhere, so we proceeded to ask the stall owner what varieties he could dish out for us. He went on to rattle off a long list – paneer dosa, palak dosa, aloo fry, pavbhaji dosa, cheese panner masala, cheese mushroom masala, chinese dosa, and loads more. We were already drooling by the time he had finished about 15 things from his list, and amazed too: never before had we seen SO MANY varieties of dosas! We decided to go for one pavbhaji dosa between the two of us.
The way the stall owner made the dosa was so enchanting to watch – he poured out the dosa batter on a hot griddle and when it was semi-cooked, he went on to put tomatoes and onions and pavbhaji masala on it, and mash it with a pavbhaji maker!
The dosas are quite reasonably priced (between Rs. 40 and Rs. 150, depending on the type you order), and they even stock soft drinks and bottled water. What I liked the most is that the stall is quite hygienic and clean. What more can you ask out of street food, eh?
The dosa turned out to be quite filling, and we returned home sated and excited. We now know we have a long list of ‘different’ stuff to try out! 🙂
