Bengaluru eatery uses broom to make dosas
A video video showing an eatery in Bengaluru using a broom to spread ghee across a pan before preparing dosas has triggered a debate across social media platforms. The contentious point revolves around both the volume of ghee used in the process of cooking and the unorthodox use of a broom for cooking purposes. Dubbed as "the most hi-tech dosa of Bangalore," the video captures a chef at a Rameshwaram Cafe outlet preparing multiple dosas simultaneously. Cutting down extra cooking time, the chef employs a broom to evenly spread ghee over the expansive pan before generously pouring additional ghee over the dosas as they cook.
The choice of using a broom for culinary purposes prompted diverse reactions among online users. While some dubbed the dosas as "deep-fried" or even tagged them as "heart attack dosas" owing to the copious ghee application, others raised concerns about hygiene due to the unconventional use of the broom.
Here's the viral video:
A Facebook user, Pallavi Arun, expressed discomfort with the practice, stating, "Please don't use the broom to spread the oil. We know that you are improvising but you may choose to opt for a custom-made oil brush... It's not pleasant to watch brooms, toothbrushes, toilet brushes, and wipers being improvised for cooking purposes... specific tools have been made for specific purposes."
"Stick broom! Really! That's just nasty, to be honest. Don't know where else that broom is being used.. thank you for sharing after watching this video I don't think I can even stomach the idea of eating a dosa, thank you very much!" wrote another user TJ Rodricks.
While it is likely that the broom used in the eatery was solely dedicated to cooking procedures, the utilization of unconventional tools in the culinary process has sparked a broader discussion regarding hygiene and appropriateness in food preparation methods.
