Palak Dosa

Dosa's now a day’s come in so many varieties that I have lost the count. But yes the last time I remember my mom in law telling me about a guy who makes this amazing Schezwan dosa in the neighbourhood! It left me thinking how far our humble south Indian breakfast dish has travelled... and yes many more miles to go...!

Everyone loves it and this recipe here is as my mom in law makes it.. I had to make this last Sunday for maa da laadlaa!! - my hubby :)
