The viral tweet has garnered 19.4,000 likes and 1,635 retweets so far and the number is growing with every passing hour.
Reacting to Anand’s tweet, politician Shashi Tharoor wrote: “Absurd but practical!”
According to some internet users this could be a great snack on the go and for some it is a smart way to save the water and manpower needed to wash spoons and plates.
And for some, the authentic way to eat idli and sambar is with the hands and therefore this bizarre version is unacceptable.
Also take a look at the other reactions:
As we complain about the shape and the way we eat it, we should always know that this methodology saves water by not having to wash our hands, which we usually do after having eaten lazily.

Isse 3 kaam Hal hote hai
1 haath gande nahi honge
2 paani bachega
3 hot and spicy ice creams khane wale ka Sapna pura ho jayega.
All kidding aside, it will be great for saving water and unnecessary water waste outside stores….

Dips !! No. Pouring sambar over the idli and crushing it, sliding them over chutney and having it with your bare hands is divine.
