Dandiest Dosa (2008)
South India's favorite luncheon dish, the masala dosa is the world's most perfect food, a healthy combo of potatoes, cashews, and fermented lentils and rice cooked up into a savory outsize crepe. That's why I go ballistic when places like Hampton Chutney Company feel compelled to fill this vegetarian delight with meat. It's worth seeking out DOSA HUT, located right next to a beautiful Hindu temple, to taste New York's best. Hint: Pick the butter masala dosa, dripping with ghee.
