CHITAU ( A VERY TRADITIONAL DOSA OF ORISSA)

As I said that in my previous post that I have got many chances to cook something different. The same way there was lot of coconut laying in side my fridge and I was unable to decide what to do with that.Then I remember after my wedding when, I first time visited to my mother town, and while coming back from has t there my mother served me a special dosa which is called CHITAU ( Which means to be returned).

It seems that it has to served to newly married daughter when she first time come to her home town. I learnt this dish from my eldest sister. Look at the dish How simple it is:-
