India Chain Claims to Be Home to Longest Ever Dosa

To be filed right next to New Delhi's record for the world's largest biryani: Sankalp, a restaurant chain based in the city of Ahmedabad, India, claims to have made the world's longest dosa.

The mammoth dosa — a crepelike South Indian specialty made from rice and black lentils — was created last Wednesday and measured in at 32 feet and 5 inches long, taking less than 40 minutes to put together. To make the behemoth, a team of 16 chefs practiced for 10 days, working to achieve the correct length by maintaining a steady temperature across the entire dosa, while handling a tawa, or hot plate, that was 35 feet long. The finished product was named "Quick Gun Murungun," the title of an upcoming movie that discusses the merits of being vegetarian.

As a lover of all things South Indian, especially dosas, this leaves me with only two questions: Was the dosa filled? And do they still need someone to eat it? What do you think of the record? Have you ever tried a dosa?
