  9. Hey Anu!
    Thats a nice coincidence, we made some sort of bangloru masala dosa last week. But the red masala is a little different from ur recipe. It didnt blend so well and was difficult when I tried to spread on the dosa. May be I should add urid dal to it like u have mentioned it. Also I didnt take pics as my camera wasnt functioning then. But u have inspired me to re-cook that again! cheers,
