For many of us, eating food from the street is our absolute fave! We all have our go-to faves, whether it’s the classic delight of pani puri or the mouthwatering vada pav. But occasionally, nothing tops the familiarity of the old favourites. One such instance recently provided further evidence for this claim. A blogger recently recorded an odd pav dish with cheese and chakli in it, which went viral.

The video was uploaded by Naman Parmar on his Instagram handle ‘lets.eattogether’. The post was captioned as ‘only one in Mumbai cheese chakli pav’. You could see the bizarre dish being made in the cheese chakli vada pav video. A pav was first cut in half, then two separate chutneys were spread on the pav.

The pav was then topped with a single piece of chakli and some diced onions and cheese slices. It was then cooked up on a grill before being served with a dollop of butter on top. The vendor had the name Shri Kashi Foods and was situated in Mumbai’s Mulund West neighbourhood.

Netizens Are Furious On This Combination

The blogger claimed that the dish had the “perfect balance of crunchy and soft.” However, other Mumbai residents appeared to disagree. The viral video’s comments section was flooded with horrified responses. In fact, one of the users wrote that the dish is only one in Mumbai as no one wants it.

Another user asked if God has given everyone a mouth, does that mean they will eat anything. A user wrote and asked to stop mayo and cheese in everything. Moreover, she feels like food bloggers are responsible for this.
