The 1 week wheat-free challenge: Day 6

Oats soaked in rice milk, dried cranberries, golden kiwi fruit, hazelnuts and crumbled corn thins.

Masala Dosa (fermented lentil and rice flour crispy ‘pancake’ with potato and spice stuffing, served with dahl, veg curry and sambals).

Mandarin.

Sri Lankan chickpea curry (with broccoli, cauliflower and onion) plus brown rice.

Mototo ‘ice cream’ with warm cherries.

Fluid: 1 espresso, water, 1 brandy and soda.

Notes: I’ve always loved dosas but amidst the wheat-free week the lovely crispy texture at the edges was particularly delicious. The SE cooked again – yippee!

What no pretty food pic? Here's a kitty instead.

Hooray for cat photos! :)

Your wheat free challenge sounds like it's going really well - congrats! It's been very interesting reading what you've been eating each day.

Nothing sounds too hard so far but i don't like the sound of the breador the ice cream (not that keen on wanton use ofcwws ice cream to be honest. Rant on that possibly coming soon)

The bread is crap. If I'd had the time I would have hunted down a 100% rye loaf - heavy, chewy and satisfying and wheat (though not gluten-free).

You have to remember that I am also navigating my usual moo-free (can only tolerate a little butter but that is about it) and meat-free restrictions so it is a triple whammy.

But Ed, the ice cream I loved and will definitely keep some on hand.

Thanks Ed. Can get specialist breads locally but decided to see what it was like for the 'average' person who only has the supermarket. I used what was in the house already (ok so we probably aren't an average household I admit) and any special requests to fit with the diet the SE had to get when he did the supermarket run. Will expand on this a bit when I post my reflections on the experience in a couple of day.

Hi im a long time reader of your blogs, first time posting. I was wondering where you got your dosai from? Were they home made?

After reading your blog today i have a massive craving for it, my grandma use to make them for me, but i haven't tried any in melbourne.. not really sure where too?? Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Welcome Anon and thanks for commenting.

My regular lunchtime in the city dosa is from Nila, in Degraves St. It costs $5.90 from memory. Johanna has a post that will give you more details:

Though I have to say I don't find them spicy at all, I love the crispy texture and all the sambals. Note: the only time I went there on the weekend there was no dosas. I haven't tried the one in Sydney Rd.

Good luck. Let me know if you find any more.
