The Origins of Dosa

Discovering new foods from around the world and sharing them with our customers, gives our chefs a real kick. We don’t want anyone to have a boring dinner if we’ve got anything to do with it. Easy to make? Yes. Boring? Never!

Indian food has been a huge deal in the UK for decades, but South Indian food is finally seeing a real rise in popularity, if you’ve heard of Hoppers – which is just down the road from the Fresh Farm – you’ll know what I mean. The dosa ,which is much like a pancake, is traditionally made of non-wheat flours such as gram flour, rice flour and lentil flour is gluten-free and has a a lovely crispy texture to it. Originally popular in South India, Mauritius, Sri Lanka and Myanmar, it’s spreading accross the world.

It’s served with sambar, which is a lentil and veggie stew, or with chutney, the way we’ve done it! People stuff it with potatoes, with meat, veggies and spices and it’s mighty tasty.
