Chotu Do Dosa Burger Lana !

One of the largest Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) chains in the world, McDonalds announced that it would serve Masala Dosa burgers for breakfast in India. The report took everyone by surprise. While BBC reported how amused social media was with the news, Huffington post called it apocalypse!

From what I could gather reading the news articles, the offering will be a Brioche, usual patty replaced by Aalo Subji of Masala Dosa and have the podi chutney over it. This sounds strikingly similar to how the chain replicated Mumbai’s favourite street food – Wada Pav to make Mc Aalo Tikki, which continues to be the entry level burger offering for the chain.

I continue to wonder who is behind such ideas and why do they find support internally. I distinctly remember that the first outlet in Pune was met with long queues and people stood around for 2-3 hours. McDonalds had a separate counter for its famous Softy (Choco Dip was not available then) and was priced at Rs.7. People flocked the outlets to taste foreign food!

I had the inkling (pun, unintended) that Ameya Sir would ink a lovely article the moment he saw the announcement on the WhatsApp forum. I had been one fo the unfortunate recipients of the birizza ([i]biriyAnI[/io] inside a Pizza offering that Pizza Hut India had invented: a friend excitedly got me one, saying that I would go bonkers over it. He was seriously mistaken, and mis-informed. A really lovely article and analysis, Sir. The foodie part, as well as the analysis, are brilliant trade-mark AJ-esque. A delight, not to eat, but to read!
Cheers, Sumantra.

That sounds disgusting.

It is pretty much a vada pav, but with potato masala in place of the deep fried vada.

MacDee have destroyed not only the masala dosa but have insulted the vada pav by even proposing this abomination.

Every self-respecting Tamilian and Maharasthrian should boycott MacDee for the rest of his/her life.

I demand a dharna.
