Joining the discussion of how much fusionis too much fusion, today we have bun gulab jamun from Kasauli. This viral dish has left the netizens debating whether or not this sweet burger deserves a chance.
Sweet and savoury—both flavours have their unique places in our hearts. Some dishes are meant to be sweet and enjoyed that way, while others are savoury in nature, and we truly appreciate the taste of them when they are authentic. But nowadays, there are so many fusion food options available at high-end restaurants as well as from street vendors. The lines between sweet and savoury dishes are blurring. Recently, we have seen many shops sell things like rasgulla chaat, chocolate momo, or fruit dosa. And now, we have gulab jamun bun from Kasauli.
Unlike the other dishes that we have mentioned, bun gulab jamun It's not a new experiment, by any means. It has been a hot selling item in Kasauli for many years, and it definitely has a long queue of people who love having it. But along with the fans come the haters, and understandably so, as bun gulab jamun does sound like an odd combination.
