A dosa-a-day – why not!

I ate my first dosa after a 17 hour bus trip on a nightmare road from Manali to Delhi (it was a long time ago).

I was riding on top of the engine in a cramped cab while the driver  chewed beetle and popped pills to stay awake.

The dosa was like manna from Heaven. Now they’re my regular breakfast food.

Why is so little known about this ancient vegan cheese?


Because only very poor people made it and hence it wasn’t something to be boasted about.

Recipes were kept ‘hush-hush’.

Search ‘kishk’ and you’ll find out just how difficult it is to nail details on how to make it.

It’s made from grain.

Can you guess what I’ve been making?

Hint – it’s vegan (but it doesn’t taste like it!).
