Viral: Man shares video of fusion matka dosa – Internet divided
Two weeks ago, an Instagram reel showing the making of the “Cheese Soda Blast” went viral. People wondered how adding cheese to a soda drink could possibly be a good idea (read the full story here). This time, paneer is again a part of a fusion dish that is grabbing attention online. A video of making a special kind of delicious dosa is being well-liked on Twitter. A paneer dosa is nothing new to us – but this dish, which has been dubbed “Matka Dosa”, has ingredients some would consider unusual. However, according to other users, the dish hardly sounded bizarre – some even called it “delicious”. But what exactly is this “Matka Dosa”?

The video was shared by Twitter user Deepak Prabhu (@ragiing_bull) who simply captioned it “#matkadosa”. It shows a man’s step-by-step way of making dosa – he first roasts the vegetables and seasons them with chaat masala, ketchup, soy sauce and more. He adds pieces of paneer and roasts the ingredients some more. Separately, he sprinkles mayonnaise over the opening of a small matcha. He also adds shredded cabbage and cheese. After that he starts making the real dosa on the tawa. He adds the filling and grates a lot of cheese on top. Finally, he makes a cone shape of the dosa and places it in the pot, corner-side down.
