Two weeks back, an Instagram reel showing the making of "Cheese Soda Blast" went viral. People were left wondering how adding cheese to a soda drink could possibly be a good idea (Read the full story here). This time, cheese is again part of a fusion dish that is grabbing eyeballs online. A video showing the making of a specific kind of cheesy dosa is garnering a lot of interest on Twitter. A cheese dosa is nothing new to us - but this dish, which has been dubbed a "Matka Dosa" has ingredients that some would consider unusual. However, according to other users, the dish seemed hardly bizarre - some even called it "tasty." But what is this "Matka Dosa" exactly?

The video was shared by Twitter user Deepak Prabhu (@ragiing_bull), who simply captioned it "#matkadosa." It shows the step-by-step method of a man making the dosa - he first sautes veggies and seasons them with chaat masala, ketchup, soy sauce and more. He adds what seems to be paneer pieces and stir-fries the ingredients some more. Separately, he drizzles mayonnaise across the opening of a small matka. He adds shredded cabbage and cheese too. He then begins making the actual dosa on a tawa. He adds fillings and grates a lot of cheese on top. In the end, he makes a cone shape of the dosa and places it, corner-downwards, into the matka.
