Set Dosa - Vadacurry

Whenever, we go to a restaurant, my in-laws order would always include this yummy combo Set Dosai - Vadacurry. Honestly, I've never tasted this Vadacurry before marriage. Even, if we go to a restaurant, my Dad won't allow us to order this. Because he had the impression that Vadacurry is always prepared from leftovers. So, I was thinking that it won't taste good. For the first time, I had this dosai/Vadacurry combo in Sangeetha Restaurant, Chennai. It tasted so good. But I never attempted it till my hubby's aunt visited us. She knew that everyone in our family love this combo. So she taught me the procedure and this is how, I learnt the preparation of Vadacurry/Set Dosai. Later, when I started to make Set Dosai often, I just made few changes to her orginal recipe and finally, arrived at a very good recipe of mine. Absolutely, it tasted great :-)
