Vendhaya Dosai

                                                      Vendhaya dosai is another variety of dosai which is very soft and aromatic.The dominant taste and aroma of vendhayam makes it tasty and soft.It is a very traditional recipe.My grandmom used to call it 'mendhaya arisi dosai'(don't know why though).It tastes good with any kara chutney and tastes best when eaten hot.
