Mumbai, March 30: The humble idli, which is also called the 'King of Breakfast' and is a food that is loved equally all over India, is being celebrated today with great enthusiasm on Twitter. Yes, you read that right! Idli special on Twitter! Twitterati just can't get enough of idli on World Idli Day 2018. There are various theories about the origin of idli and almost all of them sound true.
It is said that the dish is mentioned in 10th century Kannada text but it may have had its origin in the larger Indian sub-continent. However, food cannot be restricted by boundaries and certainly not be restricted or defined by its geography. Food, like music, is universal. Provided you have the taste for it. Enough of philosophy, let us see what celebs have to say about the white round wonder called idli.
