Its going to be year end soon. And my blog is 6 months old. I am south indian who loves her idlies and dosas. Surprisingly, my blog is devoid of dosa and idly recipes. Thats when i decided i ve to start posting my idly dosa recipes right from the basics. The basic batter recipe is a to do post yet. But for now, i m giving you all sponge dosa, a recipe adapted verbatim from Mrs. Malliga Badrinath s 100 Tiffin Recipes.
