Swiggy Instamart Could Not Keep Calm After This Man Calls Poha “Flattened Yellow-Coloured Rice”

Poha is one of the most popular Indian breakfast dishes. This savoury delight is made from flattened rice flakes. To prepare this quick and delicious dish, the rice flakes are washed and then cooked with spices like mustard seeds, turmeric, and curry leaves. Some people also love to add vegetables like peas, onions, and potatoes to their poha. However, have you ever seen someone introducing poha in a fancy way? If not, an X (formerly Twitter) user posted a note that read, “Having flattened yellow-coloured rice tossed with caramelized onions, roasted peanuts, and fried curry leaves!” As soon as the user uploaded the note, the grocery delivery app Swiggy Instamart — an arm of food aggregator Swiggy — replied by writing, “POHA hi toh bolna tha [You just needed to say POHA],” with a crying face emoji.

In addition to Swiggy Instamart’s quirky reply, other users also shared their reactions to the note.

A user stated, “Poha doesn’t deserve this eloquence.”

Another one asked, “Pohe kha rahe ho kya [Are you eating poha?]”

We are sure that it is not the first time that you have seen someone giving a fancy name to a beloved desi dish. From referring to jalebi as “funnel cake” and golgappas as “waterballs” to renaming kheer as “rice pudding,” the list goes on. While these international names can sound amusing, they also often serve as an open invitation for some light-hearted teasing. A few months back, a woman decided to join in with a touch of sarcasm, dubbing namak pare, also known as mathri, as “salty fried pastry strips.” On her X (formerly known as Twitter) handle, she shared a picture of namak pare along with a caption that humorously exclaimed, “Dad brought some salty fried pastry strips, why did I never know of this?” Click here to read about what happened next.
