    Yearender 2021: 5 weirdest food combinations that you must stay away from

    By Emily Hagan | Published on Oct 18, 2023

    Food is our ever-present companion, comforting us in the best and worst of times. We constantly seek new taste experiences, pushing the boundaries of culinary creativity. However, there are times when these experiments go awry, and 2021 was no exception. Let’s take a look at some of the most bizarre food combinations that captured our attention on social media, making our eyes pop out in disbelief.

    1. Maggi Milkshake: A Recipe for Disaster

    We all adore the quick and easy pleasure of Maggi noodles and the delightful indulgence of milkshakes. But do these two belong together? Absolutely not! Imagine the horror of blending creamy, frothy milk with soggy Maggi. It’s a nauseating disaster that should remain confined to our worst nightmares. Let’s keep classics separate for the sake of our taste buds, shall we?

    2. Fanta Omelette: A Tangy Twist Gone Wrong

    Who comes up with these combinations? It started with a food stall in Surat introducing the “Fanta Fry” – an egg dish cooked with the tangy aerated beverage. Served with butter-slathered toasted pav, this concoction includes a gravy made from Fanta, mixed with spices, mashed potatoes, and green chutney. And let’s not forget the generous layer of cheese on top. Spare us the horror, please!

    3. Gulab Jamun Samosa: A Fusion Failure

    Raise your hands if you love crispy hot samosas! And who can resist the allure of a warm gulab jamun? Sadly, the combination of these two favorites results in a disappointing mess. Samosas are at their best when filled with spicy potatoes, not syrupy sweets. While we’ve seen various samosa variations in recent years, let’s draw the line at gulab jamun samosas.

    4. Oreo Pakora: A Sweet and Savory Nightmare

    The joy of indulging in piping hot pakoras with a cup of tea is unmatched, especially on a cold winter day. But when you bite into a pakora and taste Oreo instead of the usual suspects like onion or paneer, it’s nothing short of a culinary catastrophe. Stay away from this bizarre combination, for your own taste buds’ sake.

    5. Tikki Rasgulla Chaat: A Chaat Gone Wrong

    Picture a chaat with rasgulla topped with yogurt, chutney, and sev. Sounds appetizing, right? Well, think again. This sweet and savory fusion was discovered at a food stall in Bengaluru, and it’s safe to say that it didn’t win over any fans. Instead, let’s savor rasgullas in their original, unadulterated form. That’s a much better plan, don’t you think?

    In addition to their strangeness, these food combinations are also laden with calories. Combining a samosa with a gulab jamun is not exactly the best choice when it comes to your weight. So, if you decide to venture into these calorie-laden experiments, make sure you plan a detox afterwards.

    Lastly, be warned that some of these combinations may not be palatable, and frequent trips to the restroom might be in your future. We’ve given you fair warning. Proceed at your own risk and remember, classics are classics for a reason.
