Have you ever thought that our delicious South Indian dish Idli would create a war on social media? If not, just look at Twitter and know how Idly war is going on and uniting all South Indian's. The famous food delivery app Zomato shared a question on its Twitter handle to the users and a British professor's answer sparked the Idli war on Twitter.

Zomato asked the users to share their opinions to the question "what's that one dish you could never understand why people like soo much." Reacting to the question, a British professor named as Edward Anderson replied as "Idli are the most boring things in the world." Here the war started on social media and Twittarities parted into two groups and all south Indians united together to raise voice against the professor. Politicians, celebrities are also taking part in it to support Idli. Idly lovers expressed anger over Edward Anderson.

Shashi Tharoor reacted to his tweet and tweeted as "Yes, my son, there are some who are truly challenged in this world. Civilisation is hard to acquire: the taste & refinement to appreciate idlis, enjoy cricket, or watch ottamthullal is not given to every mortal. Take pity on this poor man, for he may never know what Life can be."

Edward Anderson again replied as "p.s. Before the whole of south India attacks me, can I just say that I love dosa and appam and basically all south Indian food. But idli (and puttu for that matter) are insufferable." He also tweeted as "Having accidentally enraged the entirety of South India (and its omnipresent diaspora) on twitter, it was only right to order idlis for lunch. I'm very sorry to report that my unpopular - or "blasphemous", as some have said - opinion remains unchanged."
