From rasmalai and gulab jamun cakes to chocolate dosas, the list fusion food that we come across every day in our lives is endless. And they are not just found high-end restaurants and eateries. Some of the best of fusion food come from the food stalls on the streets and even industrialist Anand Mahindra agrees to the point.

The chairman of the Mahindra group has posted a video of a food stall in Bengaluru that sells dosas and idlis served with sweet treats. Stall owner Manjunath doesn't just stop at chocolate dosa but a step ahead and serves dosas with ice-cream! He serves the dosa with options of different flavours of ice-cream being placed upon it or alongside the dish. The dosa is further doused in chocolate sauce before being served to the customers.

Mahindra shared the video giving full marks to Manujnath’s innovation and called the Indian street vendors an 'inexhaustible source of innovation' in his caption. "All the product design teams in our Group should regularly visit vendors & draw inspiration from them!" he further said.

The Twitterati was divided over the video, posted last week on Twitter, that received more than 128,400 views with over 9,600 likes and was retweeted more than 1,400 times. Some praised the concept of fusing ice-cream with dishes like dosas and idlis.

And some users called the fusion food a disrespect to dosas.

What do think of this fusion food?
