North Indian cuisine has a raging fan-following across the country. Whether it's a parantha drizzled with butter or a crisp Amritsari Kulcha with spicy chhole - the indulgent food truly has a lot of takers. The cuisine uses generous amounts of ghee with practically every dish, a feature that may spell trouble for those on a diet. However, one Punjabi man found an amusing way to wiggle out of the restriction. Anand Mahindra shared a hilarious picture of 'Pehelwan Parantha' being devoured by a man who was asked to be on a diet. The twist was in the Parantha's size! Take a look:

"When a dietician advises a Punjabi to limit breakfast only to one Parantha," read the caption of the picture. A man could be seen feasting on a single parantha in the frame, but the size of the parantha was gigantic. Sharing the hilarious click, Anand Mahindra wrote, "As a Punjabi, I believe I am entitled to use this loophole for my Monday breakfast.... Bas ek Pehelwan Parantha."

I am from Karnataka but my first love is Punjabi breakfast and lassi. I love Punjabi magnanimity when it comes to serving butter, ghee, dahi and of course size of main course— guru (@gururajh) October 19, 2020
