Circle: The set of points in a plane that are equidistant from a given point O.


Hi all(who is the all? One or two poor souls who still read my blog:-))

I never ever thought I would be able to make perfect Dosas. As in round in shape, thin and crispy.
I didn't get much of a chance to try and make Dosas when I was in my home town. I even blogged about the various shapes of Dosa I make and how each turn up in the shape of each continent. After moving out of house, came the need to start cooking. So I was introduced to cooking and kitchen. Plastic surgery would have invariably been done on every Dosa I make. 4 months and I think I had given up.
I was proved wrong today. Made around 15 Dosas. Every Dosa was perfect, no plastic surgeries!! Crispy too!! Just like how my mom makes. That made my day! May be a very small thing for many. But an accomplishment for me. The challenge is in keeping it up consistently:-)

Disclaimer: The picture of Dosas is not of what I made today, they were even better than these:-) I pulled it from here.
