Chennai hotel makes 100-feet-long dosa

A team of chefs from Chennai tried to set the world record for the largest dosa.

The team, consisting of 60 chefs, from Saravana Bhavan has already attempted to make a 100-feet-long dosa earlier at the IIT-Madras campus. The 100-feet-dosa was prepared by using 37.5 kilograms of batter. The ingredients included 10 kilograms of rice flour, 2 kilograms chickpeas, 500 grams of green gram, 1 kilogram whole black gram, 500 grams salt and 9.5 litres of water.

The dosa was made on a 105 feet pan specifically made for the purpose of the record, in coordination with the engineering team of Saravana Bhavan. The pan was maintained at the temperature of 180-200 degrees Celsius to ensure the dosa batter didn’t set immediately. The prepared dosa was later distributed amongst the audiences.

Previously, Hotel Daspalla, Hyderabad, held the record for longest dosa made in the world, in 2014. The dosa measured 16.68 m (i.e. 54 ft, 8.69 inches).
