PinPin Set Dosa, Chapati, Poori – all these go with this amazing Vegetable-Cashew Kurma (vegetable-cashew gravy). Although the addition of cashew is optional, it gives the gravy such a rich flavour and makes it fingerlicking good 🙂

My recent sojourn to Bangalore made me crave for Set Dosa + Kurma, and Sukh Sagar, Jayanagar did not disappoint.

Made this immediately after I came back from there and sending this to Priya’s Bookmarkedevent(every Tuesday)  and Charitha’s C for Colourful Curry
