2. Coffee With Maggi Or Coffee Maggi:
We love Maggi, we also love coffee. We would love to pair them together for a great snacking time, but would you ever cook Maggi with coffee? Well, a street vendor tried doing it and it did not go well with the internet users. Watch the video here.
3. Chocolate Raj Kachori, Anyone?
Ok, we do love to pour chocolate sauce over almost everything, but in our street foods as well? We came across an Instagram post that showed a typical fried raj kachori and its usual trimming of boiled potatoes, namkeen, fried cashew nuts and boondi. But then, it got bathed in chocolate sauce! Check out the video here.
4. Fried, Not Frozen Ice Cream:
A Lucknow street vendor went all out to showcase his creativity. He served fried ice cream pakoda and it got featured in a video by a food blogger on Instagram. Ice cream scoop is dunked in a batter and deep fried before being served with the garnishing of colourful sprinkles and chocolate sauce. We were left wondering if it would taste sweet or savoury.

5. Gulab Jamun Burger
Chicken burger, fish burger or veg burger? Oh wait, there's a sweet burger too! A street vendor made a burger with the stuffing of just gulab jamun. He did not even feel the need to add any other accompaniments. The viral video of gulab jamun burger amassed mixed reactions from the internet. Click here to read about it.
6. Gujarati, Err Swiss Dabeli:
In this bizarre food experimentation, Swiss meets Gujarati in dabeli. The video shows Swiss-style cheese fondue flavoured with dabeli masala. It is served along with ladi pav pieces just like the Swiss fondue is served with bread. Let's give it up for creativity, at least. Click here to take a look.
7. Dal Makhani With Ice Cream, Not Cream
This street vendor probably misunderstood the process of adding cream to dal makhani. He poured dal makhani on ice cream and made it into a roll. Of course, the internet was not happy. Read all about it here.
