Dosas are one of my favorite things to make, though they take a lot of preparation so I only cook them a few times a year. They are thin south indian crepes (with a bit of crunch) that are made from fermented white rice, dal and a hint of fenugreek. Sambar is another S. Indian classic, it's a thin dal based vegetable soup, that is highly spiced (spicy and seasoned) and can have fiery heat.
I'm sitting around the house knitting and procrastinating today. I have a list of errands to do, and instead I want to focus on multi-colored bobbles and closeups from my work room. These are my well loved jars. They hold (from top left to to top right): buttons, cool flower shaped rice pasta, vintage plastic buttons from the 50s, more old buttons, ball buttons from old hair rubberbands, fabric yo-yos and mexican chewing cup wrappers. The anthro tomatoes are Mardi Gras throws which stand in as pin cushions, and the apple on top was a prize I found at Thrift City a few weeks ago. Soon, I'm heading out to one of my favorites--The Interntational Market, I need to pick up some supplies, because tommorrow I'm making masala dosas and sambar to celebrate Dazee making 42!
