For an unconventional Mother’s Day brunch, consider the  Indian vegetarian buffet at Chennai Dosas in Hicksville.

For $11.95 a person, you get to eat as much as you want from a buffet with two kinds of soup, six vegetarian curries and a choice of either a made-to-order dosa (a light lentil crepe filled with a spiced mashed potato mixture) or an uttapam (a pancake version of the dosa). The uttapam with onions, chilies and peas proved a fiery winner when I sampled it a few months back. There are also hot and cold desserts.

The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, so it’s first come, first served. The buffet runs from 10:30 a.m.  to 3:30 p.m.

Chennai Dosas is at 128 Broadway, Hicksville, 516-681-5151 (The restaurant, which used to be Dosa Diner, still only has a temporary banner and hasn't taken down its predecessor's sign).
