While Anand Mahindra’s concern for innovative food is something we can all relate with, what stole the show are the different comments that people had to give on his creative idea. From humble support to outright repulsion, the Idli on a stick has been garnering some very strong feelings from the Twitterati.

Some have pointed how this might be a great on-the-go snack or how it could save water or manpower needed to wash spoons and plates.

Others pointed out the fact that Idli Sambar is in fact a dish where you douse the soft round Idlis in the tangy Sambhar and use your hands to mash and enjoy the authentic flavors, and this bizarre version is unacceptable:

Lastly, many have also pointed out that there is in fact a type of Idli that is made in leaves and has a similar cylindrical shape to it but is enjoyed without the use of sticks and dips.
