Shashi Tharoor Tweets Pic Of Idlis Served On Ice-Cream Sticks, Foodies React

Idli Sambhar is one of the most loved snacks of southern India and it is also liked a lot in other parts of the country. What makes Idli so popular is the fact that it is not only delicious but healthy as well and it is pretty reasonable as far as price is concerned.

We all are accustomed to having round Idlis with Sambhar but a Twitter user shared a photo of Idlis which were stuck on ice cream sticks.

The pic was captioned, “The famous South Indian dish, Idli and Sambhar was given a creative twist by a restaurant in Bengaluru– Idli on an ice cream stick dipped in Sambhar and Chutney.”

Soon the tweet was noticed by Shashi Tharoor, the Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, who shared it with caption, “Absurd but practical”.

After Shashi Tharoor shared the tweet, it went viral and many people reacted on it. While many were annoyed over making Idlis like this, there were few who believed that it will make eating Idli easy as a person can hold it with stick, dip it in Sambhar and Chutney and bite it and so it seemed practical to them.

However, the majority was of the opinion that nothing can replace the round shaped Idlis and they don’t mind getting their hands dirty for having them.

Here are some of the selected reactions:












There were some online users who claimed that it is not the Bengaluru eatery which invented the Idli with ice-cream stick:

What is your opinion in this regard? Which shape of Idlis do you prefer or does it not matter for you even?
