We meet at Hounslow West tube station at 10.30am and begin with a brief shopping trip to the local Indian shop to learn how to select specialist ingredients.
A dosa is a south Indian pancake that is served mainly for breakfast but also throughout the day. There are many varieties of dosa made in different states of the south. The most common one is made from a fermented batter of rice and lentils. Others are made with rice flour, lentils and beans, semolina or other flours.
In this hands on class, you will learn to make three types of dosa- from fermented batter, from soaked and blended mung beans and a quick one from semolina. We will make the accompanying chutneys, lentil soup and a potato stuffing that makes a plain dosa into a ‘masala dosa’. We will also make another popular breakfast food- Upma, a soft semolina cake.
You will learn how to ferment batter, what the consistency of the batter should be and the technique of spreading the batter to create crisp or spongy dosas.
