Every week, while I plan my weekly menu, the one question that arises is what do I make for dinner. It is easy to plan out my breakfast menus as Idlis, dosas, cereal, or Oatmeal are our go-to ones on weekdays. Though we have a routine of soups, phulkas for dinner, the kids get bored with them sometimes. I also want them to try out other options while still sneak peeking some of the nutrition. one such find is this puli dosa which can be had plain as well as topped with grated vegetables.  This Puli Dosa / Tamarind dosa is tangy, spicy, and can be had with chutneys, or podis.
