“This Is Obscene,” Viral Burger Idli Street Food Leaves Netizens Gagging On World Idli Day

Idli as a snack is sacrosanct for many. It is a simple and cheap snack that fills you up. Idli is perfect as it is but there are some who won’t rest until there is cheese in every street food they eat. Someone shared a video of a street food vendor selling burger Idli and we’re enraged. What’s worse is that March 30 is World Idli Day! To desecrate this classic dish on its special day is cruel beyond all measures!

Street Food Vendor Makes Burger Idli On World Idli Day!

Everyone loves being creative in the kitchen and it is even encouraged. It’s all fun and games until someone goes and invents Burger Idli. Unfortunately, not everyone sees the fine line between creativity and monstrosity and that’s how we end up here.

A video shared on X (formerly known as Twitter) shows a street food vendor mutilating an idli into a burger. He cuts the idli in half like a burger bun and grills it. He then goes on to top with various vegetables and mixtures, and of course, cheese and mayo.

If you ask us, cheese, mayo and schezwan are probably the worst things to ever happen to street food culture. No dish is safe from their terror and they manage to defile all beloved street food items. Even the poor idli couldn’t save itself!

Needless to say, Netizens were ruthless in criticising it. Many people demanded that he should face legal consequences for bastardising this beloved and iconic snack. One commenter said that the dish was straight-up obscene.

Many others said that an FIR should be filed against the vendor for doing this to the pooer idli. One commenter said that there is a separate hell for people like him and we’re inclined to agree.
