Clearly, 2021 has busted most of our dreams of combining our favourite foods. From chocolate maggi to rasgulla biryani and Ferrero Rocher Manchurian, some of these food trends in 2021 were truly bizarre. Quite evidently, most of our favourite savoury foods were fused with chocolate as a part of a fun culinary experiment. From Nutella biryani to chocolate pani puri and chocolate Maggi, the list is truly endless. And if these chocolate fusion trends were a disappointment for you in 2021, then brace yourself. Because 2022 has begun with the same. The internet has brought before us yet another bizarre food combination- chocolate pulav. Have you started gagging already? Wait till you scroll down and watch the video of the person eating it. 

Recently, a Mumbai-based food blogger has taken to his Instagram handle @spoonsofmumbai and posted about a restaurant serving chocolate pulav. In the video, he’s seen drizzling a generous amount of chocolate syrup on white rice pulav and later eating it. His reaction after taking a spoonful of the pulav perfectly describes the taste of the dish. 

The video has received some revolting comments from netizens. A user with the username @ashmeet.sing009 commented “Fssai should put a fine on these kind of food 🙄”. While another Instagram user who goes by the username said, “Purano mai iske liye alag se saja hai... 😂”. The video is viewed around 3 lakh times and has received nearly 3k likes. 

This video of chocolate pulav is a near warning to brace ourselves for more such bizarre food trends that are coming our way in 2022. However, thanks to such food trends and bloggers who manage to keep us sane and engaged during the deadly pandemic.
