McDonald’s India is reportedly planning to launch a new product, the classic dish masala dosa in the form of a burger.
The hugely popular masala dosa is a type of rice pancake with a potato filling.
While the news has amused some Twitter users, others are angry at the attempt to “mess around” with Indian dishes.
Twitter has been abuzz ever since the Economic Times reported that McDonald’s new Indian dishes would feature items like the dosa burger and anda bhurji (masala scrambled eggs).
Amit Jatia, vice-chairman of Westlife Development, which runs McDonald’s restaurants in parts of India, was quoted as saying by the newspaper: “We continue to look at inspiration from Indian cuisine and bring it as a McDonald’s format which will give you flavors from the west but the familiarity of Indian.”
