When it comes to food, we have been treated to some bizarre new trends. While we thought panipuri would be saved from the ordeal, that hasn’t proven to be the case. Not long ago, images of butter chicken golgappas and Maggi pani puri were circulating on the internet, leaving users with a bad taste in their mouths.
Now, a vendor in Gujarat is selling fire panipuri. In a video going viral, the vendor lights up a stuffed pani puri and places it in the customer’s mouth. The trend is the second one to gain hype on social media after the famous fire paan which went viral a few years ago.
Pani Puri On Fire
Instead of simply serving the crunchy snacks loaded with tangy water, the Gujarat vendor decided to light it up and serve the flaming food right into the customer’s mouth. Golgappa or Pani puri is one of the most loved street foods in both India and Pakistan. There is a difference of opinion about which state offers the best variety of this lip-smacking snack.
While many vendors keep only one type of tamarind water, at places you can devour Pani puri with different varieties of water and chutneys. Now, taking the game to another level, a vendor in Gujarat is selling fire panipuri. In a video going viral, the vendor lights up a stuffed pani puri and places it in the customers.
The stuffed panipuri has camphor in it, which adds a fiery twist to it. The snack is now being compared with the fire paan, which is already quite famous in several parts of the country.
The video was shared by an Indian blogger on her account trying the delicacy. Take a look.
Soon after the video went viral on social media and it’s safe to say not everyone is impressed. While the majority questioned the trend. Some took on the ordeal to try it themselves.
“I have one question, why do that with panipuri?” one user wrote.
“Kuch Bhi Matlab, aag laga do bas,” (Whatever? Just set fire to anything? ) another commented.
“Yaar much jal jayega,” a third user chimed.
