Trust five-star restaurants to disguise and anglicize food like awful bhindi ki sabji as something magical. *Gently cooked okra tempered with exotic spices sourced from Kerala, anyone?*

But Indians are honest critics of food, and we see right through the angrezi renditions of our culture.

So when an online food channel decided to call gulab jamun, “fried doughnuts”, Twitter rolled up its sleeves and served up delicious comebacks.

We understand,  

A gulab jamun by any other name would taste as sweet. 

But you’re not Shakespeare, 

so, let it be.
