How to make Chettinad Cauliflower Masala Dosa?

Snowstorm Electra is knocking on our doors & windows this morning, “Are you Winter ready ? “asks the news reporter on the TV…..yup, it looks very beautiful from indoors, almost like a winter wonderland….but who is ready for the shoveling ??

Apart from the shovel, snow cap ,boots, gloves & the like you need the most important ingredient to fuel up your engines and that is a soul filling home cooked food for me. Snow, snow flakes, snow storms……and more snow…..NO PROBLEM! I say, always choose a “better feeling thought” and for me, this morning it would be the spicy Chettinad Cauliflower Masala Dosa.

  Dosa is a fermented crepe or pancake made from rice batter and black lentils. This staple dish is widely popular in South India, where I grew up and this is my go to comfort food for all seasons .So before I head out to clear the snow, I donned my apron, picked up my dosa batter and poured it on my hot iron griddle, the little crackle sound I hear while the Dosa cooks felt like music to my ears, I know I can handle any snow storm with the music inside me, just to pep it up a little bit more, I added the spicy cauliflower masala, a Chettinad steal ( a south Indian cuisine, known for its finger licking deliciousness).Winter was no more the same… numb fingers, no chapped lips, no red nose….just a happy smiley tummy all geared up for snow shoveling.

Note: If you are from South India, its almost a taken, you will have the Dosa batter in your refrigerator at any given time in history, hence I’m not going into the details of writing the dosa batter recipe here, but will list the recipe for the filling which is the Chettinad cauliflower masala that goes into the Dosa/Crepe itself.
