In the year 2020, we all wore our chef’s hats and took up cooking as a hobby. As we learnt the ways of cooking, most of us have mastered at least one dish. But the year 2021 has been way different from 2020. This year, we all have come across food experiments that have either shocked or surprised us, and sometimes, both. With the food experimentation going out of hand, we have seen combinations like Oreo pakodas, chocolate Maggi, Kacha mango drinks and whatnot. Adding to the list of bizarre food combinations, before this year ends, we came across samosa gulab jamun. Yes, you read that right! As weird as a samosa gulab jamun sounds, it indeed is a thing that has caught the attention of many and has left the internet in splits.
In a short reel shared on Instagram by @thefoodiehat we can see a gulab jamun samosa prepared. The video begins with a street vendor placing a gulab jamun in the middle of the samosa dough. Then he fries the samosa and serves it. As for the taste, when @thefoodiehat takes a bite into it, his expression is enough to tell the audience about its flavour. Take a look at the video here:
Ever since the reel was posted, it has been viewed 2.9 million times and has 105k likes with thousands of comments. Many people have shown dismay regarding this combination. One user wrote, “There is a thin line between doing something unique and doing something pathetic.” Another user wrote, “I never want to try this, @thefoodiehat’s expressions were enough to tell about the taste.” A user also commented, “why would anyone destroy samosa with this.”
Other than this, many people have also said a big ‘no’ to this samosa and have questioned if such food experiments will ever stop or not.
