"What is he making," read the caption. In the video, we could see the chef deep-frying what seemed to be a spherical ball of dough topped with sesame seeds. The exact dish name was unclear. As the hot oil was poured over the ball, it got bigger in size till it almost became as big as a football! The crispy dish was then served on a plate.
A number of comments and reactions poured into the video shared on Instagram. Plenty of users shared their guesses and responses about what the dish could be. "World's largest gulab jamun," said one user while another wrote, "A giant bhatura? Whatever it is, I want one." "Bahubali Pani Puri - ye naam thik rahega (Bahubali Pani Puri - this name will be appropriate)," said another user while yet another wrote, "Golgappa for Hulk." Meanwhile, the dish was actually from Vietnam and was a kind of hollow bread, as a user explained in the comments section. "He is making Banh Tieu - which is a Vietnamese bread with nothing inside. It is very good, you guys should search it up," stated a user.
