Agreed, dosas taste the best when they are fresh and crisp, but there is a homely charm to soft, spongy dosas that can be comfortably packed in tiffin boxes or carried along when travelling too. Here is an amazing dosa recipe that does not even require fermentation, but stays fresh in the tiffin box for at least 4 hours. Prepare the dosas soft and stuff them with this sumptuous, excitingly flavoured mixture of potatoes and green peas to make Stuffed Dosa Cones, which look and taste attractive to kids. Also pack Apple Sticks ( Tiffin Recipe) in another tiffin, for a fruity delight to munch on during the short break or after lunch.
