The above is a photo of a painting on the wall of the first restaurant we ate at -- traditional South Indian vegetarian fare, carb-heavy and yummmmmy. (The woman is a total stranger who I thought made the photo look oh so National Geographic-esque!)
You think food in the US is big? Try eating a paper masala dosa! Yup, that enormous brown thing feeds ONE. Here, Crish poses delicately before she vacuumed that thing up. Masala Dosa is the typical veggie dish: pancake made of a rice-dal batter (I think?), crispy around the outside, spongy in the middle, wrapped around a stuffing of spiced potatoes and onions, and served with the requisite coconut chutney and sambar. Eat that, and you won't be hungry for days. Well, I got hungry a couple of hours later, but then... that's not really a surprise is it?
More to come!!
