Warning: You might never look at these foods the same way again!
You battle high calorie foods on a daily basis. For example, during lunch when a happy colleague discovers that his loved one has packed him a stuffed kulcha. In the evening when everyone walks out to snack on samosa, kachori or anything the local tea vendor has to offer. And at home when post-work hunger pangs drive you to munch on the multiple boxes of namkeen.
You might classify these kulchas, samosas or kachoris as unhealthy foods but they aren't a patch on what you're about to see. We've compiled a list of the 'Most Fattening Foods', those that are delicious and dangerous. They'll expand your waist line and propel your weight.
These Top 7 artery-clogging bad boys and their calorie counts are a real shocker.

Jalebi is an Indian sweet made with wheat flour batter that is deep-fried and soaked in a saffron flavoured sugar syrup. Sweet and crisp, this can be a lethal combination of frying oil and sugar.

Mayonnaise is a thick creamy sauce that we often use as a condiment. We feel absolutely comfortable slapping on a layer of mayonnaise on a slice of toast or on a piece of chicken. Little do we realize what this could cost us. This dreamy white stuff is loaded with fat, calories, salt and may take away the healthiness of the food that you combine it with.
Calories: Approximately 450 calories per 100 grams
Donuts make people happy. Chocolate, glazed or plain, they're all extremely fattening. They may be sinfully delicious but are high on calories, carbohydrates and sodium.
