Masala Dosa - this finger-licking masala dosa is pure south Indian; it has its origins in that geographically-diverse Karnataka region. The rice crèpe is ingeniously simple: rice and lentils for the batter, cooked on a skillet. Voila! You get a mouthwatering filling of potato and onion curry dipped in chutney. Naturally, it’s sumptuous on its own too!.

Personally I am an all time barbecue person independent if hot summer :sun_with_face: or snow winter :snowman: So I always go what the season provides.
And if I want to vary: you can make super tasty curries on a barbecue fire.

Beside this I try to combine South African Barbecue style with Cape Malay style (both found around Cape Town) - not local but I brought them 20 years back form SA to my home in Germany and cultivate them since then: Squash (something between pumpkin and zucchini)

And @Binay_Agarwal your Masala Dosa looks great !!!

PS and if you are now under the impression that I have beside MongoDB a further passion than you are correct… Actually this forces a third passion: the need of workouts, I am runner (no sprint).

My favourite local lunch would be amala with gbegiri and ewedu soup decorated with assorted meats. I haven’t eaten this in a year because I am miles away from home.

**My favorite local South African tea is Rooibos Tea

Centuries ago, rooibos was a drink of the bushmen, who chopped the bush’s stalks, bruised them with hammers, and let them ferment and dry in the sun – to be sipped later in a warm brew over cooking fires.

At first glance, the rooibos bush is unremarkable. It is almost spindly, with needle-like stalks, and looks like just another scrub in the fynbos – the ecologically rich heathland of western South Africa.

Despite its name, it’s not red but earthy green. Rooibos, or “red bush” in Afrikaans, refers to the plant after fermentation, when its stalks turn a deep auburn.

Brew Rooibos Tea for Health

Rooibos tea shows promise when it comes to treating common ailments such as pain and skin conditions, as well as more serious diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. With a rich, crimson color that is visually pleasing along with a smoky, fruity and subtle flavor profile, drinking rooibos tea is a pleasure. Pour yourself a cup of tea and enjoy a sweet tea experience and reap the health benefits.

I highly recommend you give it a try!
