Located in a teeny blink-and-you'll-miss-it strip mall on Route 27, Dosa Grill is a favorite of Brownie's. Strictly vegetarian and South Indian, the menu has 25 different dosas and 8 different types of the dosa's thicker cousin uthappam.
Pictured above and to the right, is the the old standby Masala Dosa, served with sambar (a spiced broth), a garlicky tomatoey chutney, and coconut sauce.
We also got Pesaratu with Uppuma, (pictured above and right) a green gram dhal pancake with a filling described as "cream of wheat with vegetables." The filling was nice and thick and creamy like polenta, but with the mild cream of wheat rather than corn flavor.
We also ordered the Dinner Thali (pictured below), an assortment of dishes which included a dhal, a channa masala, two flavors of sambar, a sweet beet dish, and a savory beet dish, along with rice and a chappathi.
I think we were the only non-Indian people in the restaurant that night - always a good sign. I will definitely be back.
