Streetside eateries and food vloggers are vying to grab customers and viewers to check out unique flavours and dishes. They are ready to try various flavour combinations and ingredients to create unique items. While some combinations work wonders, some others might turn disastrous.

Shihan Chowdhury, a chef based in the US, has now shared a video that has the social media divided. He prepares a spicy chocolate lassi by adding chilli pepper paste. The video begins with the chef unwrapping a bar of the classic Toblerone chocolate. With the chocolate bar, he blends 1 cup yoghurt and 1 cup milk powder too. He also adds a honey-soaked chilli pepper after removing its seeds. This video has already gone viral with 19,682 'likes'. However, the spicy chocolate lassi is attracting mixed comments from the viewers. While some appreciate the incredible creativity of the chef, others are annoyed with the chef for adding chilli peppers in everything.

Chef Shihan's videos suggest that he is an admirer of chillies and spicy food. He confesses that he uses green chillies in almost all the dishes. In his previous videos, the chef has added a spicy twist to classic dishes like eggnog lassi and a strawberry shake.

Chef Shihan is not just a chef but a well-known digital content creator, photographer and cinematographer. Even though the netizens watch and support the creative experiments of culinary experts, they make clear that they do not encourage dishes that do not seem appealing.
