We could watch the cooking of the peculiar meal known as palak chhole chawal in the popular video. There were many unusual items being utilised to make the dish, which was being made on a live counter. A large scoop of rice and some ghee were first heated on a tawa. The rice was then topped with a dash of chaat masala and both chhole and palak ki sabzi. The meal was served in a kulhad, an earthen pot with a few onion rings as a garnish.

Regarding the bizzare food, Twitter users were still divided. Some people thought this idea was a little pointless. “Any modification to a food served in a Kulhad or Matka is not worthwhile. Stop with the nonsense, “one user stated. Another person commented, “My daughter usually always eats this dish after school, but alas! without uttering any term even close to appealing.” Others argued that this was the main meal, not the starters.
