Both locals and netizens were left a bit irked soon after the dish caught people's attention on social media, just like the video that went viral when Orio Maggie was sold.
The video was uploaded to a food blog's official YouTube account. “There is oreo in this pakoda. You don’t believe me? Here, take a look at this one," the video began. “Oreo bhajiya. Oreo pakoda. Ahmedabad street food. Ahmedabad famous food. Unique street food. Weird street food,” read the caption. The 3.27-minute clip garnered nearly 99,000 views so far.
As soon as the video went viral, there was a storm of comments from Netizens. "Will file a case against pakoda wala for ruining the taste of pakoda and oreo biscuits," wrote one.
Following pakode, a video of how to make 'Orio Biscuit Bhaji' also went viral. It is said that the sale of the dish was eventually halted as it caught netizens' eye and was trolled. While some people were appalled by the strange combination, others were amused by the use of oreo biscuits in biryani and made fun of it.
