           Well, this one needs no introduction! Mysore masale, as most of you would know, is one of the most famous dishes of Karnataka. This dish is so liked by people all over India, that each place has its own variations and versions. "Red Chutney" is the one thing that makes Mysore Masale different from ordinary masala dosas. Red chutney adds a beautiful flavor and spice and makes this dosa indeed delicious. I believe that my mom makes the best Mysore Masale in town ;), and what's more, she is a Mysorean herself!!! :)  Here's the recipe.... Ingredients: For Dosa Batter Follow Paper Plain Dosa recipe for batter ingredients and procedure Masale (palya) 2 medium sized Potatoes - Pressure cooked, peeled and mashed coarsely. 3 medium sized Onions - Chopped into thin strips 1/2 to 3/4 tsp Haldi/Turmeric powder 1 tsp Lime juice (optional) 1/2 tsp Sugar (optional) 1" Ginger, finely chopped (optional) 3-4 strands Cilantro, finely chopped 3-4 Green chilies, medium spiced - coarsely chopped 5-6 Curry leaves 1 tbsp Oil 1 tsp Mustard seeds 2 tsp Chana/Urad dal mixture Salt as per taste Red Chutney 2 tsp Chana Dal 2 tsp Urad dal 5-6 Dry Red Chilies, low spiced 1/2 cup Grated coconut, fresh/frozen Method: Masale: Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan; Temper with mustard seeds, curry leaves, dal mixture, haldi, ginger and green chilies.

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
