Bangladeshi trader's unique Jhal Muri preparation in paint bucket goes viral

People all over the world keep coming up with creative recipes or bizarre ways of preparing simple dishes. The internet is full of such videos, captivating the audience till the last shot. Remember Dolly Chaiwala, who rose to fame with his quirky way of preparing tea? Similarly, a clip from Bangladesh has surfaced on social media and taken it by storm. A man is seen preparing Jhal Muri in a unique way that is sure to leave you stunned.

Jhal Muri is one of the staple dishes of the streets of Bangladesh and West Bengal, India. A post that has now gone viral shows a man in an orange t-shirt and blue pants, black sunglasses and headphones preparing Jhal Muri. Jhal Muri is made of puffed rice, chopped onions, cucumbers, chillies, tomatoes and coriander leaves, pickled mustard oil, boiled potatoes, peanuts, chickpeas, bhujia and even grated coconut. The man prepared this dish with “unmatched skill”. However, what caught the internet's attention was the vessel. Instead of a steel utensil, he is seen stirring the mixture with his bare hands in a plastic container from Asian Paints, leaving everyone speechless.

The caption read, “Dolly Vai Style, Celebrity Jhalmuri Wala of Bangladesh.” The clip has been viewed 13.6 million times on Instagram. One comment read, “Bro invents a new virus.” Another asked, “Does his unimaginable behavior make up for the diarrhea?” One questioned the hygiene practice, commenting, “Honest question: what makes them think this isn't gross?” Another comment, seeing his unique style, read, “Bro thinks he's the main character.”

The uniqueness of Jhal Muri Wala, especially his hairstyle, is similar to that of Dolly Chaiwala, a well-known face on the internet. He rose to ultimate fame after serving a cup of tea to billionaire Bill Gates. This Chaiwala has a roadside tea stall near the old VCA stadium in Nagpur's Sadar area and created a stir with his eccentric way of preparing tea. He shared that he gets inspiration from South Indian films and learnt the styles by watching such content.
