One of the most iconic breakfasts, chai paratha, has gotten a new twist! Chai has turned into ice cream and the paratha has been molded into a cone:

And people are divided!
That's an experiment of epic proportions. Bold and yet simple. There's madness written all over this recipe but yet it's worth a try. If there could be a matcha flavoured ice cream why not a doodh pati flavoured ice cream.

People were actually willing to try it!
All ice creams are created equal. I'd eat that happily.
Food is never controversial.. you like it, you eat it. You don't like it, just your opinion!

I'd honestly try this. Cheeni ka paratha is a childhood favorite and I love ice cream. What's not to like here?

People believed it had potential:
if Hong Kong milk tea is an ice cream flavor then doodh patti can be an ice cream flavor.
this has potential https://t.co/ztzXgcSdJl

People didn’t understand the hate:
Why are people hating on this? This sounds so good!
Not sure why desis trying new things with our food get dragged so much https://t.co/jx4Y8SYuva

People had questions:
I’m curious, how long does the paratha hold it? 🤔 did you make it extra crispy?

People were excited!
This would be lowkey FIRE https://t.co/fkihgBTTIw

Even the non-chai fans were living for the ice cream:
I don’t even like chai but this looks so cool https://t.co/WRJiNcsc37

People were way too divided over it:
Part of me thinks this would bang, part of me is just confused https://t.co/gLbKUaJeVB

The reactions were priceless!

People were pointing out the hypocrisy:
Coffee flavored ice cream is okay but doodh pattie ice cream isn’t.
The way some of you are reacting to this convinces me you guys lack creative imagination. Really, hating on desi food reinventions is not a personality trait. Do better. https://t.co/THcSJjOQBM

It changed the meaning of chai paratha for some:
