The first photo made me think of small towns everywhere, but then I saw the rest of the post and most small towns don't have temples and beaches and intricate carvings and sculptures!

BTW, I am posting on our website blog and would invite you to visit:

You live in a fascinating country with so many places of interest.
The delicate "bread" or 'wraps" looks so good. It's almost transparent.

Pradip Biswas said...

Before reading this blog i was thinking Udipi is a south-Indian namefor getting the best tiffins with large varieties. This nire dhosa is unknown to many of us. Asked for it in ten udupi dhosa they showed blank faces. Possibly my pronunciation was wrong.
