Trader Joes Masala Dosa

Have you tried Trader Joe’s Masala Dosa Authentic Indian appetizers?

We love the spicy flavor of Indian food, and when we saw these taco like snacks, we bought a box right away!

The wraps are made of rice a rice crepe - and rice make a great wrapper for the filling of  spicy potatoes and onions.  The filling was fantastic! It had just enough spice so you know you are eating Indian food, but not too much that you cannot taste anything, at least that is what we thought.

The Masala Dosa come with a package of coconut curry, which was wonderful and a little sweet from the coconut and cooling from all the spices in the potato and onion filling.

They were super easy to cook, all you needed to do was heat on a pan lined with foil (check the package for time and temperature) and then heat up the coconut curry sauce in a little boiling water to thaw it. (We like to use a mug with some hot water,  drop the pouch in, and then allow to heat up while the masala dosa are heating in the oven).

As you can see from the picture, our Masala Dosa got a bit toasty in the oven and this gave the rice crepes a nice crunchy texture to contrast the smooth center.

As a note:

As we ate these yummy Masala Dosa (with a salad for a nice lunch) we thought that the coconut curry sauce served COLD would have made a nice addition to the warm Indian tacos and will thaw the coconut curry sauce briefly and then chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

A second note, would be to lightly oil the tin foil as our rice crepes stuck in a few places. gggrrrr

Trader Joe’s Chocolate Truffle Filled Figs

There are so many new holiday products in Trader Joe’s right now, that we feel a bit like a kid in …. well a candy shop! But I guess that is how I feel when I shop at Trader Joe’s on many occasions as there are so many wonderful products to choose from.  Today we wanted to tell you about this product as you might easily pass it up:

9 Rabitos Royal~ Chocolate Truffle Filled Figs!

Chocolate covered FigsWe usually enjoy figs during the holidays ~ either fresh in a sauce or as an appetizer but certainly dried figs also make there way under the tree for some tasty gift-giving too.  So when we saw this package we instantly thought we are going to try these and see if they will make a nice gift.

The short answer is YES!!

These are absolutely delish! And a great mixture of flavors. First a nice-sized fig is stuffed with a smooth chocolaty truffle center (with a hint of brandy I might add) Then the whole truffle is covered in a thin layer of chocolate which melts in your mouth~ as well as on your fingers ~ YUM!

I tried to cut one in half for a photo… but Yikes~ the fig protested ~ and became utterly un-photogenic fast! So our advice is to pop the whole fig in your mouth and just savor all the flavors as they appear.

One Chocolate Covered Fig

Another cool thing? Each fig is individually wrapped for freshness and that  might make it easier to take a fig or two for a gourmet lunch box treat… OK that is my plan….. You could always add them to a cookie assortment too…
