Idli – a fluffy South Indian rice cake – is loved and appreciated by many around the world as a comfort food.
Anderson responded to a tweet from Indian food delivery service Jomato, asking, “What is a dish you can never understand why people like it so much?”
He replied: “Italy is the most boring thing in the world” – lo and behold, a split was born.
Some users agreed with Anderson – others were confused as to why this material went viral in the first place.
The politician also offered some advice on how to eat this dish: “Mustard seeds with coconut chutney, a red chilli and onion chutney and some molasses w / melted ghee. If the idli batter is properly fermented it will be the closest thing to paradise on this earth! The class will be better.”
“I know people can be very curious about their favorite foods, but it was a little more than I expected! I think it was somewhat Shashi Tharoor, who bravely defended the food of his region and got things out of control!” Anderson is a lecturer in history at the University of Northumbria in the north of the UK. “Food means a lot to people on an emotional and cultural level – I love my food and value this very much,” he said.
But still, even after receiving careful guidance on how to eat, Anderson still does not believe.
“I’m afraid I’m sticking with my guns. In light of the reaction I ordered some Italian from a local South Indian restaurant in Newcastle yesterday, but my opinion remains the same,” he said.
“A lot of people have told me I’m not going to judge them alone, but they do come with sambar, coconut chutney, gunpowder, and ghee. According to Anderson, Cole Pathur – a fried flatbread curry – prefers butter chicken and mutton cheese, a pea and cheese cheese dish.
“Where my wife’s family comes from, I’m particularly fond of southern cuisine. My mother – in – law wants to die for fish moly, and I have enough roast, appam and ishtave, fish sad, and of course piles of Kerala barota. When all of this is available, eat itlis. Why waste your time ?! “he added.
