You know, when it comes to culinary experiments, we really should leave it to the experts. Because when we don't, we end up with some truly bizarre combinations that have no place to exist - at least that's exactly what Twitterati believes about 'Strawbiryani' aka Strawberry Biryani.
Yes, Twitter user Saad shared a photo of a dish he made at home where he combined strawberries with biryani.

Of course, Twitterati wasted no time in turning into food critics:

Dude. That’s just gross.— Kalsoom Lakhani (@kalsoom82) February 19, 2021
Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe you're supposed to garnish with coriander not strawberries :) https://t.co/R13xvxTF67— KHODU (@turtlexo) February 19, 2021
No no, you just can't do that. No no, please don't do that. https://t.co/wukb6U8kcK— Kishan Sahu (@starkky07) February 19, 2021

Though there were a few curious takers too:
I must be mad. I'm seriously considering a berry mix in biriyani. Maybe blueberries also. That tartness vs umami goat fat, hmmm...— Hari Menon (@runbikehurry) February 19, 2021
Yes but the flavors are subtle. The actual Biryani isn't lost 😁— Season Lady (@ladyofseasons) February 20, 2021
Looks like elaichi is no longer the most hated ingredient in a biryani!
