“Dosas are just a vehicle for chutney”

Dosa (a thin pancake or crepe) is often eaten with chutney. Many Indian foods have been called a “vehicle for chutney.”

“What is a dosa, if not a vehicle for tamarind chutney?” was posted on Twitter by Don Gale on October 23, 2012. “Dosas are just a vehicle for chutney delivery” was posted on Twitter by Rakesh Pai on January 10, 2018. “Dosa is really just a vehicle for eating chutney and potatoes” was printed in Saveur on October 3, 2018. “The plain dosa bits were a perfect vehicle for the chutney” was posted on Twitter by Luca Renée Shoal, disaster lesbian on September 16, 2020.


Wikipedia: Dosa
A dosai or dosha or dosa or dose is a thin pancake or crepe, originating from South India, made from a fermented batter predominantly consisting of lentils and rice. It is somewhat similar to a crepe in appearance, although savoury flavours are generally emphasized (sweet variants also exist). Its main ingredients are rice and black gram, ground together in a fine, smooth batter with a dash of salt, then fermented. Dosas are a common dish in South Indian cuisine, but now have become popular all over the Indian subcontinent. Dosas are served hot along with chutney by tradition and sambar in recent times. Other accompaniments include chutney powder (a fine groundnut and lentil powder).

“Dosa is really just a vehicle for eating chutney and potatoes,” Guna Raj says, reassuring that the crêpe-making part need not be intimidating.

Bread is a vehicle for butter whilst poppadoms are a vehicle for mango chutney. Mango chutney > butter. Poppadoms.

I wonder if most people realize that what they actually love is not the momo but the accompanying spicy chutney?Momo is nothing but a vehicle for transporting the garlicky chutney to the system. U cud eat boiled paper with tht chutney&it might still feel the same. Pls introspect!

There was a dosa in my lap. It’s gone now.
I should have spread the filling out more. BUT! The plain dosa bits were a perfect vehicle for the chutney. And now, the jamun…

Momos are just a delivery vehicle for the Spicy Garlic-Chilli Chutney.

Have you tried @DosaKitchenUK’s version, @edanderson101? Agree with the consensus of them being vehicles for sambhar and chutney.

Exactly, came here to see if anyone said this. A good idli can be more than just a vehicle for sambar, chutney and podi.

Meh I prefer dosai myself so can’t blame you. But at least dhokla is less tasteless white stuff in a bite and a better vehicle for chutney

uttapam is just a vehicle for chutney and has no inherent value of its own, change my mind
