Mumbai Memories

Earlier today I stumbled upon this footage I shot over three years ago during a culinary adventure in Mumbai, India. The dosa stand featured in this clip is honestly one of the most delicious places I have ever eaten. What you see being prepared in the beginning is a spring dosa, which consists of shredded beets, carrots, peas, onion, garlic, and other vegetables, immersed in cheese, accented with masala and tomatoes, wrapped up in a perfectly crisp crepe made of lentil flour. Like most South Indian food, it's served with coconut and mint chutney and a side of sambar--a very spicy and delightful soup made with vegetables, yellow lentils, tomato, mustard seeds, and assorted chiles.

For incredible, authentic South Indian snacks, I recommend visiting Little India in Artesia-- there is a heavenly strip of restaurants, grocery stores, and snack shops just off of Pioneer Blvd. If you're planning on going, you've also got to see a Bollywood flick at the Naz 8 multiplex-- where you can order samosas & chai along with your movie ticket!
