We have witnessed some odd food mash-ups on social media, with reactions ranging from “Wow” to “What were they thinking?” Sometimes you stumble upon a genius combo like peanut butter and jelly, and other times you end up scratching your head over rasgulla momo. But this time, it’s a street vendor’s chocolate paratha that has taken the internet on a rollercoaster of opinions. The paratha, a classic flatbread, has long been celebrated for its savoury fillings like spiced potatoes or paneer. However, the idea of a ‘chocolate paratha’ has raised eyebrows.

In a viral video shared on Instagram by @yumyumindia, a street vendor unwraps a bar of chocolate, melts it on a hot pan, and throws in some raisins for good measure. Next, he takes a ball of dough, rolls it out, and generously fills it with the chocolate-raisin mix. He then rolls it up into a chocolate-filled paratha. Placing it on a hot pan, he expertly cooks both sides, generously applying spoonfuls of ghee. The final touch involves cutting the paratha into four pieces, served alongside what appeared to be potato sabzi.
