The summer season seems to have reached its peak, with the temperatures rising to high as 40 degrees Celsius every day. Even the towns that generally stay cool during the summer months are experiencing a new kind of heat this year. Seeing such a high temperature, many people even joke that one could cook a whole meal outside in the heat. We may laugh after hearing this, but what if it came true? It would sound totally unbelievable, right? Well, it really did come true. A woman from Odisha was seen making rotis on a car's bonnet! Yes, you read that right.
In a video originally made by a local news channel from Odisha and uploaded on Twitter by @nilamadhabpanda, we can see a woman standing near a car. The woman has a chakla, belan and wheat dough to make the rotis. As she stands in the blazing heat, the woman makes round rotis on the car's bonnet. Once that process is complete, she puts the roti on the vehicle and bakes it! You can even see her flipping the roti to cook it from the other side. In the one-minute video, you can see that the roti was actually cooked on a car due to the scorching heat. Check it out here:

Ever since the video was uploaded, it has been viewed 60.9K times and also has several comments. Many people have expressed their views and told their experiences in the sun. One person said, "Yesterday, my hand got burnt when I was moving my bike in shade from sunlight." Another person said, "I think it's better to get a solar cooker it's very easy to cook within minutes, not to wait for hours to cook." Some others also laughed at the video.
Licipriya Kangujam, a climate activist from Manipur, also reacted to the video and wrote, "Congratulations India! Finally, we can make roti on car bonnet."
However, there was one comment which surely stood out from the rest. A user had replied to the video by showing how someone made dosa on a scooter's seat! The user @chittapanda, shared a video of a man pouring some dosa batter from a vessel on the scooter's seat. Then the man in the video waits for some time and flips the dosa to cook it from the other side. Check out the comment here:
