Ever felt too hungry and quickly went to a restaurant to have a delicious dosa, but had to wait for 10 minutes to finally have it in front of you? Yes, everyone can relate to this tragedy!
We know how tough it is to handle the strike of the hungry creatures inside your stomach, like controlling a riot unarmed! Every such human who had to wait for his dosa must have prayed to God for help, and he has finally listened. An engineering student of SRM University, Eshwar Vikas has designed an automatic dosa maker machine, called Dosa Matic. The thinking behind it was to produce dosas in seconds so that time is saved and the dosas are cheaper. Noble thought for all dosa lovers out there, right?
In India, chapatis, dosas and many other tasty eatables are hand-made, while burgers and pizzaas are manufactured. The time along with extra human efforts make chapatis and dosas much more costly than burgers, and Eshwar had plans to fight change this. This Electronics engineering student started working on the Dosa making machine 2 years ago and spent approximately 6 lakhs on it, which was mainly earned from his internships. The user can get a dosa in under a minute, so that you don’t have to fight your hunger for too long! One can even choose the kind of dosa- thick, thin, crispy,uthapam or kal dosa. You just have to fill in some batter and oil, and the dosa gets rolled out. An auto clean feature is also there to keep you free from the troubles of cleaning the machine after every dosa.
The team behind Dosamatic has set up a company called Mukunda Foods Pvt. Ltd., and it is incubated by Indian Angel Network. They have got their own manufacturing plant and R&D team too. The Dosamatic machine they have developed is going to cost just one third of the other machines that do the same, but are much more bulkier and use complex mechanisms. This is just another story of how the passion of doing something different along with determination can help counter challenges, even if they are related to delicious and crispy dosas. Lets hope the restaurant next to your home starts using Dosamatic, so you won’t have to wait the next time you’re hungry.
Enough use of the word Dosa, I now need to eat one! Long Live Dosas!
