You may have already heard of the 'unpopular opinion' meme that has been doing the rounds of Twitter. The premise is simple: One person invites others to share their controversial or polarising opinions on a certain topic to start a conversation. Trouble is, these unpopular opinions often lead to heated arguments and debates on the microblogging website. So when one user asked others to share their unpopular opinion on desi food, it wasn't surprising to see things get heated up.
As people tweeted on everything from jalebi to biryani to dosa, others sought to change their opinions.

South Indian food is just loads of starch/sugar and white stuff that just so bland that it wouldn't have it even exist ed had it not been for the chutneys/sambhar/rasam.— Nidhi (@nidzk123) March 19, 2019
