Street food occupies a special place in every foodie's heart.

"How Indian street food is prepared. Would you eat it," questioned the user in the caption. The clip was originally from an account on X called 'Catch Up'. Since the time it was posted, it has received over 19.4 million views and 6.5k likes.

In the video, we could see the making of the giant parotta. First, the dough is kneaded with hands. Then, it is allowed to rest for some time before being portioned out into separate portions. A few more layers are created and then the dough is again spread out by hand. A giant griddle is used to deep fry the parotta in small sections.

Users on X remained divided about the street food video. Some people said that preparing this parotta on such a large scale was quite rare and usually these dishes were made in smaller versions. Several others said that as long as he had washed his hands, it was right.
