Dosai fit for Train Travellers.
While waiting for an overnight train from Tiruvannamalai to Rameswaran Island, in a group of 96 travellers, we had to be highly organised. It certainly was great fun, and as I waited on the platform I could watch this expert dosa maker ply his trade.
He was so very practiced – dosa after dosa flew from his grill onto large plates. I would have given a fortune to try one in the local train station cafe, but it was further down the platform, and we had to stay in our organised groups for fear of missing the right carriage or the train.
It was late at night and the photos are through a window, but I watched this man for a long time. He was a master of dosa making. Check out the large vat of dosa batter that he is using. It is poured with a cup onto the grill, rapidly spread into a large circle, and then those dosai are flipped and cooked with such a deft hand.
It is HOT work.
Mr Dosa Maker, have no fear. Dosa is one of my most loved of Indian foods. I will be back to try yours.
