If you were asked to explain 'Jalebi' to someone who is trying the dish for the first time, how would you go about it? Indian cuisine has built a fan following of its own across the globe, but explaining what exactly popular dishes are about can be quite a task. How do you describe the wonderful Gulab Jamun, for instance? And what about traditional Indian dishes such as Paranthas, Puris, Idlis and Dosas? A Twitter user put a hilarious spin on this struggle to explain what Indian dishes are all about, by describing Vermicelli Pudding or Sewiyan ki Kheer as 'White Sauce Pasta'. Take a look at the tweet:
White sauce pasta is my favourite ❤️ pic.twitter.com/apewE4D4rf— sara ka sara (@nonotadha) January 12, 2021
The user @nonotadha shared a picture of her favourite Sewiyan Kheer, and called it 'White Sauce Pasta'. The tweet took off from there and became part of a hilarious conversation, which went viral on the micro-blogging website. It raked in over 24.6k likes and thousands of retweets since the time it was posted. Desi Twitter users renamed their favourite Indian dishes in the funniest way possible, resulting in a must-read Twitter thread.
