Us desis may not have been able decide which biryani is the best kind, but one thing we all know for sure is what isn’t a biryani at all!
And one such not-at-all-biryani recipe has been making rounds on twitter, uniting all biryani critiques together:

Hi. Delete this. This is not biryani. This is not even scrumptious. This is just yellow chicken and potatoes. I’ll be reporting you to the Human Rights commission for this violation. https://t.co/U7Bc2Q38J5

People were calling it a propaganda against biryani!
If there is a food video that can be turned into propaganda to get people off biryani, this is it. https://t.co/4NxPAvocgP

Truer words have never been spoken!
If there was ever an incorrect way to cook and eat biryani, this would be it. Why are you eating naan with rice? https://t.co/UxJ2DgdtaZ

Wow! it is already very authentic but if you just add some tomato ketchup and Nutella in it that would really make it more authentic https://t.co/UrCQFdv8kj
