Biryani is bae and you cannot fight netizens on this be it the scrumptious Awaadhi biryani, the Kolkata biryani with potatoes, the spicy Hyderabadi biryani, the finger-licking Moradabadi biryani or the drool-worthy biryani of any other state. Just bring the dish on the table and see peace prevail but a Pune restaurant triggered a war instead by slamming all the other biryanis and calling them ‘pulao’ while hailing Hyderabadi biryani.Also Read - Millions of Phone Numbers of Clubhouse Users 'Up For Sale' on Dark Web
The restaurant’s ‘Biryani Policy’ left the netizens fuming because let’s face it – when it comes to biryani, there is no hierarchy. However, a signboard outside the restaurant asserted, “All types of biryanis other than Hyderabadi Biryani will be referred to as Pulao.” Also Read - 'Issued By Malafide': Karnataka High Court Quashes UP Police Notice to Twitter India MD
It added, “Bombay and Pakistani biryani henceforth will be strictly called as Mutton masala rice.” Taking a jibe at Kolkata biryani which even features potatoes, the signboard insensitively established, “Calling anything with Aloo is illegal. Any rice potato mix will henceforth be called as Batata wada rice.” Also Read - Diverting Attention From Non-compliance With Rules: Govt on Twitter’s Concern Over Freedom of Speech
The picture with the signboard soon went viral on Twitter and netizens were quick to give it their piece of mind.
About time, Hyderabad (#Biryani), India.

Pouring Mirchi Ka Salan on your boiled rice and calling it Biryani tantamounts to crime against humanity. May as well pour ketchup while you are at it. pic.twitter.com/wN6Uu7VUHf
