The vendors who sell food on the streets in India are putting a lot of effort into developing their own versions of well-known dishes by experimenting with a variety of different cuisines. Sometimes they are fascinating, occasionally they are bizarre, and sometimes they are completely incomprehensible. We recently saw a street vendor in Delhi making karela pakoda, and another served egg pizza in kulhad and referred to it as egg sabzi. Both of these dishes were delicious.
A street vendor in Raipur fried chokha in a deep fryer rather than grilling it, and an Agra resident made headlines for serving beer chowmein. Are you already gasping? You won’t believe what you’re about to read about this street seller that sells fried ice cream!
On his Instagram channel called ‘@eattwithsid,’ a food writer shared a video in which a street vendor demonstrates how to make fried ice cream. Chaap Wale, Rajajipuram, and Lucknow are the locations of the hawker on the street. In the video, the vendor can be seen preparing an ice cream pakora.
Surprising, isn’t it? In addition, the movie demonstrates how to make an ice cream pakora. The vendor begins by selecting two ice cream scoops, then coats them in a batter made with slurry, rolls them in flour, and then deep fried them. He keeps them on a serving platter, and then drizzles chocolate sauce over them before topping them with colorful sprinkles.
The breaking of the crispy pakoras by the vendor to demonstrate the ice cream melting and flowing out is the most exciting part of the film. At this very moment, it appears to be very tempting. However, users’ responses on Instagram were all over the place. “This is actually a good dessert,” read the comment left by one user. Some users tagged their friends on social media with the message “We ought to give this a shot.” And there were some individuals who did not approve of the innovation. Statements such as “It is time to leave this planet” and “It is not an ice cream anymore; it is hot cream fritters.”
