dazee turned 40 on friday so we celebrated with homemade masala dosais and ice cream ganache pie! i am really thrilled that the dosais came out so well...south indian cooking has always seemed so daunting to me. i served the dosais with a cilantro chutney (cilantro, lemon juice, salt, green chili and plain soy yogurt), coconut chutney (fresh coconut pulverized with cilantro, salt, and a bit of water and seasoned with fried lentils), lakshmi brand mango chutney (no preservatives and all natural) and of course shpicy pickle.
the dosai recipe i used can be found here: http://www.metrotimes.com/editorial/story.asp?id=4144 though i made up my own potato masala filling...
apparently, the pie is more popular than my cakes..who knew? i bought a chocolate cookie crumb pre made pie, filled it with two softened quarts of soy delicious's mocha coffee almond and then made a chocolate ganache (melted choc chips with a bit of choc soymilk) and stuck in sunspire's earth balls. the pie set up in no time.
