Woman Calls Namak Pare “Salty Fried Pastry Strips.” Internet Gives Hilarious Reactions
We have all encountered people in our lives who have a habit of giving fancy English names to our beloved desi dishes. From calling jalebi “funnel cake”, golgappas “waterballs” to kheer a “rice pudding”, the list is long. While these international names sound amusing, they can also be an invitation for some friendly trolling. A woman, on X (formerly known as Twitter), decided to go sarcastic and called namak pare aka mathri “salty fried pastry strips.” The moment this fancy name hit the Internet, food enthusiasts could not stop themselves but come up with a barrage of hilarious comebacks.
