It may seem lame for some that I find it super great to have finally made tosai by myself, but it honestly is a big thing for me. To be brought up pampered by the culinary experience my mum constantly served my palate, making tosai myself after she's taken everything sensible for cooking with her into the grave is definitely a huge thing.
Growing up enjoying her Indian cooking, I sadly took it for granted as to just sit back and consume, and not really care to try and do it with your own hands or educate myself with her skills while she was still alive. Plus there's always the Indian restaurants available for my crave.
This is something many of my friends have agreed with me. Us taking our mum's kitchen skills for granted.
What made me want to do this, was really because of my kids.
Since I had the chance of enjoying hot homemade tosai on weekends as a kid thanks to my mum, I wanted my children to have it the same.
Not some trip to the Indian restaurant where I either have to pack it back or consume it as an overpriced dish, honestly I'm tired of it, the crowd, the filth and a bomb for a bill.
After watching how they enjoyed it very much, tosai straight from the kitchen to their dinning table, in the comfort of their own home, and asking for more and better still asking if I could still make even at dinner though the flour mixture finished for breakfast itself, that's the sign! The sign of my achievement, not the task of making the tosai, but the demand for it from my little fans.
More Indian dishes to attempt to, and I'm most definitely looking forward to myself doing it.
