We, Indians, have loved food with a twist and offbeat preparations. Be it Chinese or Arabic preparations, Indians have ensured to give their own twists to cuisine from different parts of the world. But, if we are doing this, there are a few who are creating different versions of Indian authentic cuisine too. And, the traditionalists are probably not liking it. Recently, a video of dosa, cooked in the Mexican way has gone viral. Dosa, which is a loved and comfort food for the majority of Indians, has gone through some real change too. Here we are discussing about the latest Mexican dosa trend and people’s reactions to it.
Mexican Dosa & Why Are People Cribbing About it?
There are several versions of dosa available in Indian restaurants today. Starting from the classic masala dosa to pizza dosa, name the kind & you will find available. Considering the fact that street food vendors are coming up with innovative ideas to jazz up Indian traditional cuisine, the Mexican dosa is a similar attempt. A video went viral after a food account from Delhi showed dosas with loads of fillings. As they unwrapped the dosa, the filling was not mashed potatoes, but sliced capsicum, onions and tomatoes. This seemed, unlike the usual dosa to many on the internet.
