We love bingeing on food and binge-watching food videos. As we scroll through our feeds, we find all kinds of videos showing innovative recipes, bizarre food combos, unique regional traditions and much more. Social media also give us a glimpse into how street food is made in different corners of the country (and the world). Recently, we came across one such viral video that left us stunned. The Instagram reel shows an Indian street food vendor cooking a huge paratha with a lot of ghee. So much ghee was used that users couldn't help but raise questions (and make jokes) regarding what would happen after eating such a dish.

The Instagram reel was shared by a video creator @officialsahihai. In it, we first see the man adding ghee straight from a packet on top of a paratha. He then flips it over so that it melts and it almost looks like the paratha is 'swimming' in a pool of ghee. He continues to cook the paratha on both sides. Before cutting it up, he tilts the tawa to drain the remaining ghee into another vessel. "Swimming Pool wale Dilkhush Parathe," says the caption. Check out the full video below.
