Recently, UK-based Edward Anderson said that idlis are the most boring dish in the world. He added that he enjoys dosas and appams though.

Needless to say, desi Twitter was up in arms over the insult. Some pointed out that idli in itself isn’t a complete dish just like rice and bread.

Others responded by naming bland dishes eaten regularly abroad – mashed potatoes, oatmeal, pancakes, and congee.

After the debate went viral, Edward ate idlis for lunch and unapologetically revealed that his opinion that they are boring has not changed.
