You know how annoyed you get when you hear a Bollywood song that has ruined a Punjabi classic? Well, that is us this morning after seeing this new fried Indian burger from Australia. Like WHY?
Milky Lane café in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, announced the cultural fusion of a Burger last week. It soon got Aussie food lovers are excited.
The Indian-inspired burger is created using fried chicken that is coated in butter chicken paste and crushed poppadoms, which is topped with cheesy garlic naan fingers, coconut vindaloo sauce, mint yoghurt aioli, mango chutney, and cucumber. Like did the creators only ever eat starters in an Indian restaurant?
Those who’ve tasted the thing have given it glowing endorsements. One person wrote: ‘Best thing I’ve ever tasted,’ while another said: ‘I had this today and it was sensational.’
Christian Avant, one of the owners of Milky Lane, said he estimated the burger to come in at around 800 calories.
He said: ‘I have never ever seen a burger with cheesy garlic naan fingers inside it ever. We believe it is definitely a world first. ‘We’ve toyed with the idea of doing an Indian inspired burger for a very long time now and knew that when the time came, it had to be special.
For us, the key ingredients had to be butter chicken and cheesy garlic naan bread, the staple of any Indian feed and something that everyone loves.’ Each burger comes with two of the cheesy garlic naan fingers, with cheese oozing out the side.
Just leaves us to ask – Would you try it?
