In the Instagram reel by @paneer.and.parmigiano, we see an Italian man tasting a dish in a kitchen. The text on the video reads, "Italian husband tries Indian masala pasta". After taking a bite of the pasta, he takes a moment or two before responding. His verdict is: "It just doesn't go. The sauce, the masala is nice, it just doesn't go with the pasta. That's very weird. It's the kind of taste that I would expect from chicken or paneer. I feel that flavour and then I feel the pasta together and I say, "What is that?" It's like Nutella on pasta".

The viral video has received 446K views so far. It has sparked a range of reactions on Instagram. While some people agree with him, others feel differently. A few have appreciated his level-headed and candid opinion. Read some of the reactions below:

"An Italian won't understand the essence of masala in Indian pasta."

"But props for being so sweet and polite in expressing his dislike."

"I agree with Parmigiano... Masala Spices don't go well with the texture of pasta. Some might like it. But I won't call it a proper recipe."

"Don't show him how they make street-style pasta."

"Bro is spot on. Fusion cuisine's biggest flaw is combining textures that don't match with the flavours."

"I agree with him. Indian masalas and spices are amazing but not in Italian food."

"In fact, food is not universal, each region has different tastes according to their likes."

"Unpopular opinion: masala pasta doesn't taste good at all. (I've been eating it my whole life and still don't like it, I'd rather not eat any pasta than eat it)."
