Curd rice or Thayir Sadam is a staple in most South Indian households every time summer rolls around.
And this easy and simple delicacy isn't limited to just South India, it is spread across the entire subcontinent, known as "dahi chawal, doi bhaat, perugu vannam, thachchu mammam," among many other names.
However, this summer favourite delicacy didn't have the same effect on a Twitter user who posted a picture of it with the caption, "now I’ve seen it all."
In a reply to the tweet, she further dissed it saying, "yogurt with plain white rice is not a dish."
yeaaa but it’s plain white rice? not a dish— sabrine. (@__sabrineh) March 21, 2019
And then said, "it's just the fact that its plain rice."
yeaa I’m sure, it’s just the fact that it’s plain white rice— sabrine. (@__sabrineh) March 21, 2019
Desi Twitter, however, wasn't having it.
