This is the second post in the leftover remake version series, and definitley apt for the fasting or lent season for Christians before Easter.
Necessity is undoubtfully, the Mother of all/most inventions. Applying this principle in cooking, believe a lot of foods too would have evolved in the same process. Either due to necessity, or even a mistake in the kitchen can eventually turn to be a hit.
As far a remakes are concerned, i personally believe, new dishes evolve out as a result of the finishing process. Need to finish off the last remainings in the plate and thats when you get around mixing a bit of this..and a bit of that....from here, and from there...and there you go ! You have just got something new...a better version of the same base ingredient.
Well, you just can do around with a bit of fooling (lots infact) while your kids are young. Used the same filling in dosa and convinced our older one that this indeed is a much better version of the masala dosa than what he loves from Sharavana Bhavan ;)
As long as it is thin and paper crisp...he is happy.
Want to go further ??? Well...layered puttu with the potato filling.
