Top 8 Pure Vegetarian Dishes – It’s Finger Licking Good

Top 8 Pure Vegetarian Dishes—It’s Finger-Licking Good

Let’s talk about this hilarious trend of trying Indian food on YouTube and Instagram! India, the land of spices and diverse flavours, has become a hotspot for these adventurous food explorers. But wait, the reactions can be both fantastic and utterly hilarious!

It’s a riot to see influencers tackling dishes like Butter Paneer with Naan (which, truth be told, isn’t a common order for Indians). Or when they get adventurous, they might enter into Chana Masala or Medu Vada territory. But here’s the kicker: Some call Medu Vada a doughnut and munch on it plain, missing out on the chutney. And the best part? They sip the chutney like it’s soup! That’s one way to spice up the food vlog.

I love the enthusiasm, but Indian cuisine has way more to offer than a few standard dishes. Keep your tongue curious, and you will discover a whole new universe of diverse Indian cuisine. For example, these breakfast snacks and desserts waiting to be explored!

They are the unsung heroes of Indian food and an absolute must-try. So, get ready to discover a whole new world of flavours and delights beyond the usual suspects. Ready, set, explore!

This is one of those delicacies that knows the art of invisibility. What does it mean I ate it? I had one, maybe 10. Okay fine! I forgot to stop! But in all seriousness, Jalebi’s deep-fried goodness and its irresistible sweetness make it a must-have. Its unique shape adds to the charm too. Jalebi is quite similar to funnel cakes, but instead of powdered sugar, it is coated with saffron-infused sugar syrup. This results in a crispy, crystallized sugar crust, making the snack even more delicious.
