i have this friend from udupi. and at her home, i have eaten neer dosa, masala dosa, godhi dosa, uppu dosa, mixie dosa … sometimes all in the same morning. heh heh.
her idea of making fresh chutney is dashing off to climb a coconut tree and plucking a coconut. since she cant do that here in KL, she has resigned herself to breaking a coconut after the guests arrive and moving in fullspeedandgrating grindinggreenchilliestadka voila chutney!
she even told me of a dosa-related proverb in kannada” “ellara mane dosenu tute” (every Dosa has a hole… ) and which conveys the larger meaning that we humans are have the same stories of sorrow and happiness.
humbled. i tried to think of a related tamil saying (while chewing on my neer dosa).
but i only got as far as aasai dosai appalam vadai . which kinda means no dosa for you.
good thing that the folks from udupi didnt know about that one. else i would have never gotten to eat uppu dosa, neer dosa, masala dosa, godhi dosa…
