Butter chicken might be one of the most popular dishes in India and golgappe or pani puri is the ultimate street food. But combine the two and you have a culinary disaster on your hand, which may give competition to the unappetising Maggi Milkshake.
A Twitter user shared the photo of the odd fusion food of crunchy golgappes filled with creamy butter chicken instead of the usual potato stuffing and tangy water.

Garnished with mint leaves and sev, the photo left foodies with a bad taste in their mouth. While many pani-puri and butter chicken lovers were irked and thought its ‘blasphemous’, a few people said they wouldn’t mind trying it.
Although it’s not clear where this picture is from but the fusion dish seems to be a popular finger-food in a few restaurants in Delhi, Nagpur and Kolkata. In fact, in some places their are other puzzling varieties available as well like pizza golgappe loaded with cheese, and even a dessert versions stuffed with chocolate and mango pudding!
Here’s how netizens reacted to the weird food combo:
Is it weird that I want to try these https://t.co/sgJsA8YdB2

I am sure these are ordered after the party table is more than two pegs down. Then such things sell easy. (They crave for Golgappas and fear upon missing the main course.).😂

It’s an insult to both, ‘Gol Gappe’ and ‘Butter Chicken’.
