The internet never ceases to surprise us, especially when it comes to food creativity. A plethora of bizarre and unique dishes have emerged online which tend to challenge our taste buds. Whether it is an ice cream dosa, oreo pakora or gulab jamun and ketchup, or instant noodles with chocolate spread - there is no dearth of the number of innovations people can concoct, but the results are always under a question mark. People have always turned down unconventional food pairings until recently when a Twitter user declared Masala Thums Up the “best Indian drink.” To our surprise, the Internet is backing this concoct, which has also triggered nostalgia for many.
A Twitter user, ‘GabbarSingh' shared an image of the drink served in a glass with some fizz on top. Upon a closer look, you will also be able to spot masala particles at the brim. “Probably the best Indian drink: A masala thums up,” he captioned the post. Take a look:
