Let’s just agree that chaats and street food inadvertently reminds one of golgappas. No matter what you call it, from golgappa, panipuri to puchka or gup chup, it just goes on to prove how much we love this street food! While we all will agree that we can never get enough of that spicy pani filled in the puris, gol gappas are otherwise super versatile and allow us to make them in our own way. This has given rise to the number of experiments by culinary enthusiasts. Some experiments are irresistibly delicious, but some are outright bizarre. For instance, would you ever try your pani puri's pani with a mix of cheese? Well, believe it or not, this exists. A street vendor is actually serving cheese pani puris, and internet is already unhappy.
In a video uploaded by Instagram food vlogger @food_o_logu_nagpur, we can spot a street vendor adding cheese to the pani puri's pani. The video begins with the street vendor opening a whole packet of a block of cheese. He then starts to shred the cheese on top of about five containers filled with pani puri's pani. In the video, the blogger asks the vendor, "What are you adding?" the vendor replies, "Cheese ja rahi hai, kisi ko batana mat (I am adding cheese, please don't tell anyone.) Take a look at the video here:
Ever since the video was uploaded, it has been viewed over 700k times, has more than 40K likes and hundreds of comments. And most comments showed how disappointed people are. "Aaj kal street food wale har ek dish mein cheese dal rhe hai.. Without any knowledge and taste... Panipuri ki bezzati krdi (These days, street vendors add cheese to anything, without any knowledge and taste. This is an insult to pani puri)" wrote one user. Another user added, "Ye video dekh ke Nagpur chord ke chale jane ka maan kar raha hai. (I want to leave Nagpur after watching this video.)" A comment also read “Panipuri died due to heart attack”
A lot of people echoed the thought that street vendors add cheese and butter to just about everything and anything just for the sake of innovation. “Cheese ho gaya hai ya tata namak har jaha dekho waha dale ja raha hai (Is it cheese or salt, people keep adding it to everything)” wrote a user. Some said that such food experiments need to be stopped.
What do you think about this cheese panipuri? Let us know.
