We're headed to New York City for a dosa hunt, a South Indian snack that's like an Indian crepe. The leader of our hunt is New Yorker Amrit Singh. He runs the indie music news site Stereogum. But lately he's turned to filmmaking to explore the issue of identity for Indians in America. And what better way than to go on a quest for the perfect potato-y pancake? Singh gathered a group of his musician friends in a decked out van – complete with disco ball.
