The love for Golgappe is truly unparalleled in India. Whether you know it as Pani Puri or Puchka, Batashe or Golgappe - the dish is found in practically every nook and cranny across the country. Crispy fried shell-like balls are filled with potatoes, chana and chutney and then dipped in a spicy water preparation to create this tantalising snack. But can you imagine using this yummy treat to propose marriage? A man took advantage of his girlfriend's love for the popular street food dish and used it to hide their engagement ring inside! Take a look:

Gol gappay or pani puri are enjoyed by everyone and they are a real treat. But none of us would have imagined getting proposed through gol gappay.

Twitter user @hanani0 had originally shared the photographs on the micro-blogging platform. "I mean, can't say no to pani puri," she wrote along with the pictures. The news was soon picked up by multiple handles all across social media including Facebook and Instagram. In the photographs, we could see the happy couple with the ring on the woman's hand. There was also a picture of the plate in which Golgappe were arranged, with the ring peeking out from one of them.
Twitter users and foodies across the world could not keep calm after reading about the proposal. Several called the gesture incredibly 'cute' and praised the man for the idea. Others thought that they would have accidentally swallowed the ring, had they been proposed to in such a manner.
