No one likes back-to-back lectures in college. It is very tiring to sit for hours on end and study with no breaks. Moreover, we tend to feel hungry during lectures. Some of us may sneakily try to eat snacks, but that is not always possible. A budding musician at a US college seemingly tried to fix this problem - in a bizarre way. He started making dosas during his lectures and offering them to his classmates. He posted multiple reels on his Instagram page showing his efforts to feed fellow students. What's more: he does not just make plain dosas. He also has chutney and aloo stuffing!

In the videos, we see Pranav Pannala or Pedda P making fresh dosas on a griddle plugged into a class socket. He offers them to a number of students, some of whom refused. One reel shows him mixing the batter while listening to the lecture. In the most recent video, we also see him making a masala dosa for his professor. The teacher seems pleased and accepts the plate. After all, he must also be hungry after all his hard work! Watch the full reel here:

On February 24, Pedda P released a song titled "My Dosa" in collaboration with the artist ShakesProd. The two are also the founders of what they are calling the 'Dosa Student Association.' According to its registration form, the association aims to "spread dosa awareness and best practices regarding making crispy dosas."
