From being smothered with Maggi to bearing the mushy burden of pav bhaji, the humble dosa has withstood more than its share of innovations. Many of these street food inventions would be nothing short of blasphemy for a classic dosa with sambhar and chutney lover. But who cares as long as they're delicious?

We get it. Basically, anything delicious can be dumped atop a dosa to create the sort of fusion yumminess that we can't get enough of! Sorry dosa, but we can't just let you be yourself. You're much too versatile for that!
