Pesarattu Dosais/ Green Grams crepes
Pesarattu

This week in Blog Hop Wednesday, I was teamed up with Vidya of Curry Leaves. What struck me the most about Vidya’s blog is the fantastic photography of her food –  While I enjoyed browsing her healthy and vegetarian foods, I was almost instantly drawn towards this dosai because I have made them in the past and it has not gone over well with my son – You know how the one person who does NOT like something sometimes determines what is made in the house and what’s not? Well it has always been the case in my home until recently when I decided not to pander to the taste of the one person who does not like it but the taste of the 4 other who do J

Tough luck Sonny!  – but his tastes have been changing (for the better) because he now loves upma which he used to love for the first 5 yrs of his life then started detesting – I am happy to say we are the love upma stage again- yay – And I am hoping that he will love this dosai he once denounced.
