“My mother hails from Madras and she was the inspiration behind ‘Dosa Point’,” Adnan told Arab News.
South India is the origin of dosa which is a crepe-like or thin pancake made of fermented batter that is primarily made up of rice and lentils. In Karachi the average pancake retails for about Rs500, or around $3. In Pakistan, a regular chapati costs about twenty cents.

Some of our rituals differ,” Kamachi Kanthaswamy (a woman of 63 years old from Madrasi Para) said. “But the thing that unites us as a broader Tamil community is the food we eat.”
“I have taught this to my daughters. Everyone in our community is able to cook it” she explained. “Some also sell it. But I’m happy that our food is finding prominence in the city’s food centers. We should let people taste our food. It’s very delicious.”
Muhammad Mustafa, who learnt South Indian cooking while working in Dubai, agrees. After losing his job in Dubai, and then moving to Karachi due to the coronavirus lockdowns he decided to join his wife Nimra and set up Dosa stalls.
“To our satisfaction, every customer is a native of South Indian roots and has declared that our dosas taste superior to the one you make at home.” Nimra stated to Arab News during a visit to Nimra’s food truck. The sign that was next to it said: “From South To Your Mouth.”
Mustafa and her, made dosas with various fillings, such as chicken, potatoes as well as crispy onions. Nimra made the dosa, and served it to customers with coconut chutney and salambar daal.
Muhammad Saleem, a customer whose mother is from Madras, Tamil Nadu’s capital said that the relief was in finding restaurants in Karachi that offer authentic dosas.
