Prep-work for Thursday's meal: Soak rice and Udad dal in the morning and make dosa batter in the evening. Leave it to ferment overnight. Refrigerate the fermented batter.
I love it when I can serve breakfast dishes for dinner. I use my regular dosa batter (which you should prepare ahead of time) and use them to make these savory vegetable loaded south Indian style pancakes. Serve them with some tomato chutney (The chutney can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator). Finely chop/grate your favorite vegetables and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator to make the vegetable uthappams. My choice of vegetables would be onion, tomatoes, grated carrots, green bell pepper, cilantro, etc.
This is the one evening of the week, where we usually eat out or bring home some take-out food. We decide on a restaurant to try or revisit based on what cuisine we are craving that week and eat out. Your kitchen needs an off-day too :).
