Food Hunt: I’ve been craving this all week

Hello folks!

I’m back with pictures from my breakfast – local Indian food.

thosai

Thosai.

In my opinion, Thosai is acquired taste. The first few mouthfuls of it were fine, but they started getting a little too sour for my liking. An interesting first time experience for me.

FYI, the “dough” used for thosai is leavened thereby creating the sour taste (from fermentation).

Next up, Prata! The one I have been craving all week…

prata

Prata has a slightly chewy texture but crispy at the same time if you have it while its hot. It’s basically fried pancake mainly made of flour and ghee that is cooked over a flat grill. Usually served with 2 types of curry, but I have chosen to add sugar as a topping.

462 calories for 2 pieces and a serving of curry.

A little on the high side but surely worth my calories 😉
