A Bengaluru restaurant cook uses a “broom” on the tawa, and the video has received 15 million views.
Dosas are one of the most popular breakfast foods. Various businesses attempt to master this South Indian delicacy, from streetside kiosks to fine-dining restaurants. Some restaurants specialize in various types of dosas, attracting a large number of foodies with their offers. A viral video from one such restaurant in Bangalore has recently gone viral. The movie covers the process of producing dosas from scratch, giving viewers an idea of what goes into their preparation. After watching it, Facebook users were enraged.
A cook stands in front of a giant tawa in a restaurant’s open kitchen in this Facebook video by @Thefoodiebae. Crowds of consumers can be seen behind him, waiting for their orders. He begins preparing the tawa for dosas. He sprinkles it with water and then sweeps the tawa with a broom. On the hot tawa, the water starts to vaporize, and he resumes his sweeping motion. Following that, he begins spreading batter in circular motions to produce the dosas. One tawa can accommodate 12 dosas.
The cook cuts a small hole in the corner of what appears to be a ghee packet. He then expertly pushes the packet to pump out the ghee over each dosa. Following that, he places small amounts of filling in the center of each dosa. Later, he adds a generous amount of podi masala on top. He folds the dosas and moves them to plates coated with banana leaves. These are then topped with chutneys and sambhar and served to consumers. The caption reads, “Crazy Rush for Bangalore’s Most Hi-Tech Dosa.” Watch the whole video below:
To date, the video has received 15 million views and 111K likes. The comment section has exploded with disparate opinions. While many online users have criticized the usage of a broom to clean the tawa, several have stepped forward to explain why this is the case. Others said the amount of ghee/oil used to make the dosa was excessive. Take a look at some of the reactions below.
