“Hard-working man selling various types of dosas on cycle for 27 years in the bylanes of Malad. He prepares this pizza dosa on a tawa with loads of veggies, schezwan sauce, garlic chutney, and oodles of cheese grated on top; all of which he carries along with him on a tiny cycle,” the caption for the video read.
The text on the video revealed the story of the man. Srinivas started his journey by selling plain and masala dosa only. As the time passed, he included various dosa to his list and now sells more than 100 varieties of the dish.
