Madurai is not only famous for Meenakshi temple, malligai poo there are few more things that adds the asset of it, one among is the “Kari Dosai”.If you had ever tasted the Madurai kari dosai, I bet you must be pining to have it again. It’s a very famous food in Madurai and everyone from Tamil Nadu might be aware of it if not tasted. There are lots of vegetarian dosai varieties, however in the non-veg, I really give a hats off to the person who invented this recipe. It’s a very innovative dish and at first I thought I could taste only in restaurants. But when I prepared at home, my family enjoyed it like a feast and added to their favorite among my recipes as they never tasted it before.

Kari dosa is like a mini dosa with meat toppings; the entire dosa is cooked upside down and cooked for couple of minutes, the result an awesome dish with delicious taste.It is not that spicy as you may think. The combination of mutton with masala makes it tasty with the combination of egg in it makes you to feel that out of the world taste. Seriously, you may think I am exaggerating it, but the truth will be there at your taste buds after you taste it. If you are a dosa fanatic then I would recommend this to you to try. With no further delay; here you go with the “talk of the temple city” recipe.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..IMG_20180430_213725_Bokeh
