Priya Ammu is a native of Bombay, India whose love of food developed after arriving in the US to attend university at the age of 19. While she had never cooked a dish in her life before then, her love of food was apparent from a young age. It was only after marrying a South Indian she’d met in college that she bought her first pressure cooker and tava (griddle), de rigueur cooking tools for any Indian bride.

Raising three girls with different dietary requirements and being married to a strict vegetarian, Priya’s approach to food had to be flexible, adventurous, and tasty. Her love of all cuisines was reflected in the fearless (and sometimes questionable) food she cooked, but she experimented and evolved relying on her innate ability to blend the flavors and spices she grew up with.

Following long stints in the corporate hospitality and IT worlds, Priya decided to reunite with the original love of her life – food, specifically the food of her childhood, dosas. 

About Us


I loved everything I tried.

It was all really delicious

& very flavorful.

DC Dosas are dense & protein packed & the fact that they are gluten-free certainly doesn't hurt the calorie count.

Todd Kliman

It was so good.

A nice meatless lunch.

I'll go back.

Beautiful, mouthwatering dosas at lightning speed.
