Set dosa

I had tasted set dosa several times in South Indian restaurants as a kid.I used to find it very difficult to finish the whole set, as set dosa is always served in a set of 3 dosa’s.Set dosa sets well in our stomach too,yes it is  a very filling breakfast.I adopted this recipe from Anjana ji’s blog.The minute she has posted I had decided to prepare it and added in my to do list.This recipe is definitely a keeper.
