Masala dosa
New York, Jul 9: Popular South Indian dish Masala dosa has been listed as the 'Top 10 Foods to Try Before You Die', according to a list compiled by the Huffington Post.

The list was compiled by a travel blog Viator for the newspaper that includes must try dishes for travellers across the country.

Apart from the South-Indian delicacy, BBQ ribs from the US, Peking duck from China and teppanyaki from Japan were few must tries.

"The plate-covering, paper-thin pancake is made from rice and lentils, cooked to lacy perfection on a hot griddle. What creates the more-ish flavour is a spiced concoction of mashed cooked potatoes and fried onions, served with a liberal dose of garlicky chutney," the website describes masala dosa.

The list also includes French dish escargots, which are actually snails served in the shell and cooked in a delicious melange of garlicky parsley butter, generally eaten as an appetiser. Moussaka has been described as the Greek answer to Italian lasagne.

"The dish is made by smothering layers of ingredients in a cheese bechamel sauce and baking until melted and golden."

Other foods in the list are laksa, a sea food curry from Malaysia, green papaya salad or som tam from Thailand and Pavlova from New Zealand-Australia.

"Sampling the local cuisine can help you make friends, understand the history, politics or religion of the place you're visiting and provide a lasting memory of your trip. Food and travel go hand in hand and there's no better way to delve deep into a destination than to try its most famous dishes," said the newspaper.
