An image of planet Jupiter is going viral due to its resemblance with a dosa.
Social media is one place where foodies abound. There are tons of food photographs and videos to feast their eyes on. But foodies on Twitter took their obsession with food a notch higher when they spotted the popular South Indian dish Dosa in one of the most unlikely places – a picture of planet Jupiter. The image was taken in the year 2000 from the narrow-angle cameras aboard NASA’s Cassini spacecraft. It found its way to Twitter recently and garnered hilarious reactions from Indian foodies on Twitter. Take a look:

The image fooled most Indian users at first glance, who thought it looked exactly like a dosa. The tweet went viral on the micro-blogging website getting over 35k likes and many thousand comments from users. Some people questioned the image’s veracity, wondering how ‘top’ and ‘bottom’ could be distinguished from outer space. Other users rolled with mirth at how much the planet’s picture resembled a hot sizzling dosa, captured in the process of being roasted on the tawa. Here are some of the reactions:
