This is what qualifies as stripping the Aaloo/Skin of the Dosha/Hair!

Come to think of it, I haven't had a non-veg dosa ever! Never in Maharashtra have I seen a non-veg dosa.

WOW! The Dosa / Dosha / Dose / Dosai has managed to create a wonderful debate. Wonder if the Idly / Id-dally / Itly would compete in this.

Here is mine !

In Kerala, dos(h)a is pronounced and written as ദോശ (दोशा in Hindi). This is different from the letter ഷ (ष) as used in ദോഷം (दोष) to indicate bad phase in astrology. Unfortunately we cannot differentiate these two letters in English, hence the confusing spelling. If we write dosa there it is read literally as ദോസ (दोसा) and that is also why names like sekhar elsewhere will appear as Shekhar in south.

Non-veg Dosa (Dosha, Dose) , was more prevalent in Chettinad cuisine in Tamil Nadu. Now I see it as a common thing in Bangalore-Especially in the Empire chain of hotels.

That's one good thing about the humble dosa, you can stuff pretty much anything inside it.

To continue the thesis on it: I read somewhere that it got its name because it makes 2 shhhh. One when the batter is poured and the 2nd when it is turned over. So 'Do' 'Shhhh' = Dosa (I know-It does not make sense )

In Karnataka its called Dose not Dosha. So its not everywhere in South India that its Dosha! Dont club entire south as one

If 'h' is not added, how do you separate a real 'ti' (as in tee or tea) from 'thi'?

Just as you have the term "Going Dutch" where everyone on the table ships in to foot the bill, you now have a new term "Going Greek"

Here people eat, drink and make merry to the fullest but when the bill arrives they simply stand up and show their empty pockets and express the inability to pay up

The 'h' in South India has a mind of its own, and appears where not expected, and disappears when expected:

curd-bath
Boothalingam
Banukumar
Asha Bonsle
Bagyalakshmi

and in a different way: Raaga Moganam

Again, this is not to hurt anyone, including the Cockneys who have their own issues with 'h'

P.S. The 'h' part is not meant to hurt anyone, its just my observation.

This was the thread and this was the post that first came to my mind when I read the news article this morning. Came here to post, but you had already reported the same.
