In one of his Dubai tours, the content creator stops by for a binge on what could be Dubai’s biggest dosa. Don’t believe us? Here’s proof!
what is dosa?
Dosa is a thin, flat bread- much like a crepe. It is popular in South India especially in places like Kerala and Tamil Nadu. It is made from a fermented batter consisting of lentils and rice and is usually served with a variety of chutneys, sambhar and a potato masala.
The ‘family dosa’ is 4.5 feet & needs two people to flip it
And now, to the big part! While a whole lot of restaurants in Dubai serve this favourite dish, Saarangaa Bhojan Shala in Mankhool has taken the humble dosa to a whole new level. This restaurant serves what could probably be called Dubai’s biggest dosa. And, it’s sure to challenge any foodie!
Aptly called the ‘Family Dosa’, this one needs a full family to be polished off. The dosa is a whopping 4.5 feet long, and is served with an accompaniment of sambar, coconut chutney, tomato chutney and pudina chutney. The dosa is prepared on a 1.5 meters long stone and takes seven burners to get the cooking done. Lastly, when it’s cooked, at least two chefs are required to skillfully roll the dosa into shape and finally disembark this ethereal dish from the stone.
They serve it in a tray in the niftiest manner so hard work does not go for a waste. Well, the idea of a Family Dosa is to take families on a joyous experience of sharing and eating from a single plate. The family dosa is available in two varieties- Family Plain Dosa and Family Masala Dosa.
