  • ✓ We were very, very lucky to be visiting Sangeetha pure vegetarian restaurant (located in Hounslow West); where Master Chef Prakash reveals some of his recipe secrets into how to make the perfect Onion Rava Masala Dosa & Pizza Uthappam.

    * Potato.
    * Carrot.
    * Green peas.
    * Green coriander.

    Pizza Uttapam (contains rice flour, urud dal & water) it is the same batter as used for making normal Dosa's; but spread on the hot griddle a lot thicker, it's then topped with:
    * Chopped green capsicum.

    * Chopped red onion.
    * Green chilli.

    If you sit in Sangeetha Vegetarian restaurant you'd be forgiven if you imagined or thought that it is a South Indian "Masala Dosa" "hotel" or stall (or "Lari") somewhere on the busy, bustling streets or beaches of India - astonishingly these guys were making these Indian street food favourites in the heart of "Proper London" - making them freshly cooked to order and serving them piping hot within a matter of minutes.........delicious restaurant quality food; but at affordable street food prices!!!

    Dosas are an ubiquitous and very popular food in India. The (eggless) dosa batter is made of fermented Rice, Urad Dal & Fenugreek Seeds), which is then cooked on a hot griddle (in a very similar way to a French Crepe Suzette or Galette or even a Chinese Jian Bing) until it's crispy & then filled with a delicious lightly spicy combination of Mashed Potato, Peas, Carrot & Onion.

    ...............these guys make it look very easy, but it takes many years of practice to make perfect Rava Dosas' & Utthappams' just like you see here (Chef Prakash has worked for Sangeetha restaurant for over 30 years).

    A special thank you to Anilbhai & his team who welcomed us and graciously allowed us a privileged glimpse into their kitchen to do the videoing.

    God Bless Sangeetha restaurant!!!!
