I am a complete foodie. So, basically the idea of stuffing my face with food excites me more than anything. While I love trying fusion dishes, there are certain food combinations that are just not meant to be. Like, kiwi on pizza, dal makhani cappuccino or gulab jamun pav. I mean, does the world really need these bizarre food trends? Of course, NO!
And, when it comes to fusion dishes from different cuisines, South Indian food is hands down my favorite. Like, have you tried the pizza dosa or pav bhaji dosa or noodles dosa? They are simply oh-so-delicious.
Dosa, that is often called the Indian crepe or pancake, is a very versatile dish. It pairs well with a lot of things. However, someone has taken this savory goodness and made a sweet dish out of it. Yes, you heard yes right. A Bengaluru street vendor is selling dosas filled with ice-cream instead of the regular vegetable filling, reports Indian Express.
Have a look at the video of this innovative dish shared by business tycoon Anand Mahindra:
Not a fan of ice cream dosas, but full marks to this gentleman’s inventiveness. In fact Indian street vendors are an inexhaustible source of innovation. All the product design teams in our Group should regularly visit vendors & draw inspiration from them! #whatsappwonderbox pic.twitter.com/G65jg70Oq5

The street vendor also sells ice-cream idlis. He serves hot dosas and idlis along with scoops of ice-cream topped with a generous amount of chocolate syrup. The vendor smartly gave a sweet twist to the popular South-Indian dish.
Some people loved the vendor’s innovative approach to the South Indian dishes and said they’ll definitely give it a try it. They even compared it to crêpes and waffles and applauded the food-stall owner’s entrepreneurship and creativity.
Have a look at the tweets appreciating the fusion dish:
Indian version of waffles and pancakes!! Sounds yummy!!! 🙂

This is innovation and humbleness at it its best, thank you for sharing it 🙂 Had this been a chef or a restaurant/hotel, they would have charged a bomb for this.

Many people were not that thrilled about the unusual combination as some comfort foods taste better the traditional way:
Law enforcement could use this to torture South Indians and get the truth out of them! Cruel!! 😛

Won't ever try this in my life because I prefer to have Indian dishes in their classical form. Totally appreciate the ingeniousness though!

As a dosa lover, I don’t think I’ll try this ever. How about you? Will you have the ice-cream dosa? Let us know in the comments below.
