Indian food is one of my all time favourites, and a regular dish in our household, so I’ve never needed an excuse to try a new recipe. Dosa’s are essentially Indian savoury pancakes, filled with a spicy chickpea and vegetable mixture and topped off with a curry sauce.

This month’s Daring Cooks challenge came from Debyi from Healthy Vegan Kitchen with a recipe from Refresh: Contemporary Vegan Recipes. The challenge was to create a truly vegan meal.
