Report: Three-month-old Aloo Gobi Builds Its Own Ecosystem In The Fridge, Man Says ‘i Thought I Was Gonna Eat It’

Complete with a chain of organisms and an energy source, this dabba of aloo gobi is currently under review by UNESCO for the status of a biosphere reserve. 25-year-old Mumbai resident Divij Ahluwalia claims that he decided not to throw it out after its third day in the fridge because he truly believed that he was going to eat it. In a bizarre turn of events, he did not, in fact, eat it.

It appears that Ahluwalia completely forgot about the Tupperware container of spiced tubers until the day he started noticing strange, bite-sized woodland creatures settling inside his refrigerator. Despite having discovered signs of life emerging around the container, he did nothing about it because ‘it felt bad to throw food out.’

It has been three months since the container was placed in the fridge. Ahluwalia still has hopes of consuming the remains after scraping off the layers of fungus, decay, and bonsai forestry. However, with the recent onslaught of biodiversity researchers calling for the preservation of this newfound ecosystem, those hopes are getting weaker. Oddly enough, this story has sprouted on the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste, making Ahluwalia’s case weaker still. #FreeAlooGobi has already started gaining traction on Twitter. This has left many users thinking someone is doing a giveaway of their leftover sabzis.

The BackBurner shall return with more on this story soon. Until then, follow @naaginsauce on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to stay ahead of the curve on news, hot sauce, hot sauce news, and more.
