Bhindi and samosa fall into completely different categories of food, yet both of them have mass appeal and receive equal love. While samosa is one of the most popular street foods in India, bhindi is among the top sabzis made and enjoyed in Indian households. Their commonalities end right here. But a street food vendor took the plunge of experimenting with the beloved samosa and created the bizarre combo of bhindi samosa. A food blogger found this vendor in old Delhi selling samosa stuffed with fried bhindi sabzi and shared a video on social media. It goes without saying that the video is breaking the internet now.

Posted on the Facebook page ‘Food lover’, the video shows the samosa stall owner flaunting this unique dish. He breaks open a samosa to show the filling of bhindi inside. He claims that the bhindi is cooked in a way that there are no slimy strings left in it. What’s even more interesting is that the bhindi samosa is turned into a wholesome chaat. It is topped with green chutney, coriander leaves, and a generous sprinkling of masalas. The chaat is also served with aloo-chole sabzi. All this at just Rs. 30.
Along with bhindi samosa, the stall also sells matar samosa, and other dishes like kachori and veg biryani topped with chutneys, onions and green chillies and aloo chole sabzi.
