[VIDEO] Meet Thiru Kumar, The Legendary Dosa Man of Washington Square Park

Thiru Kumar, AKA the Dosa Man, has been running NY Dosas, a food cart in Greenwich Village’s Washington Square Park, since 2001. His dosas—which are made from fermented rice and lentils, and stuffed with potatoes, vegetables and spicy sauces—have become an international phenomenon. Thiru grew up in Sri Lanka and learned to make South Indian recipes as a child. After he immigrated to the United States in the 90s, he made it his life's work to sell affordable, fresh and vegan dosas to NYU students, professors and other passerby's.

You have to be lucky to try some of Thiru Kumar's dosas before he runs out for the day. Follow @nydosas to see when he is open for business in Washington Square Park.
