The current surge of viral internet content has prompted many food enthusiasts to try out new, many a times, bizarre, food recipes. Over the past couple of years, we have seen with awe so many unique food combinations on the internet, yet we haven't had enough of these surprising videos. Of late, gol gappa (pani puri) has taken the centre stage of the experimental world, and many viral videos showing chocolate gol gappa, chilli gol pappa and even Mirinda gol gappa surfaced. Continuing the trend, another video has popped up, giving the gol gappa yet another spin which is just as strange as the others.
Gol gappa is one of the oldest and the most loved street foods of India. Fried round dough balls are filled with a spicy mixture of mashed potatoes and topped with tangy water and put straight in the mouth, bursting out a font of different flavours. But a Bengaluru-based blogger decided to put the gol gappa shells to use in an entirely different way. She made a sandwich with it!
Take a look:
The blogger in the video made a double-decker sandwich; she first smeared her brown bread with green chutney, placed onion and tomato rings on it, then covered with another bread piece. Over it, she plopped mashed potatoes and crushed gol gappas. She completed the sandwich and took a large bite of it, "It's really good, you should try it out," she said with her mouth full. "What's your fav sandwich?," she wrote in the caption.
The Instagram video has got more than 220k views and more than 12k comments, ranging from appreciation to disgust. While some wrote positive comments like "I'll try for sure coz I love pani puri" and "It's mouth-watering", some just shot it down, "How are you even eating like you expect us to do the same", "Pani puri lovers crying in the corner".
