Vedna

2006-03-09

Went out for a curry tonight, with an old friend of mine. Fortunately, he knows lots of nice places to eat in Newcastle; this is good, because, currently, I don’t.

I can’t remember the name of the place, but it’s near the Quayside, and rather pink. But the food was excellent. We had a daal, a strange pancake bread, a cabbage dish, dosa and some vedna. I’ve been a fan of dosa for ages, since discovering them in the Punjab Tandoori in Manchester. I’ve only had then in one other place, so it’s great to find another resturant cooking them. I even tried making them for myself once, using some of the wonderously named "Mr Git’s Dosa Mix". It never worked.

As well as his dosa mix, Mr Git also makes vedna mix. I did buy some, but never tried it. So, this was the first time I’ve actually got to eat them. They were great. A light donut made out of lentils.

Afterwards, we went back to the pub and I almost fell asleep. I hadn’t realised how tired I was.
