Join our expert on Indian cooking Aditya Raghavan for this virtual cooking class on Dosas, filled with a Potato Masala and served with a Coconut Chutney as well as an Oil & Dry Spice Gunpowder Chutney. Originating in the Southern state of Tamil Nadu, these fermented batter crêpes are popular throughout India and beyond. Addie will share his food memories with you as he prepares recipes that he learned in childhood in this online cooking class. And we will send you a video on how to prepare and ferment your Dosa batter, since this will need to be done a day ahead. Then during your class we’ll prepare the filling and accompaniments, and learn how to cook our Dosas in a cast iron pan, or a non-stick skillet.
