Want to learn a tasty, healthy, versatile dish that once prepped can be made fresh for breakfast, lunch, or dinner for the whole week?

Dosas are savory rice & lentil crepes originating from South India that are now popular around the world. They are versatile, like tortillas, and can be eaten with any type of filling, topping, seasoning, and/or dip like potato, cheese, basil, and chutney.
