While Anand Mahindra’s concern for innovative food is something we can all relate to, the different comments the show made are what people had to give on his creative idea. From humble endorsements to outright repulsion, Idli on a Stick has been eliciting some very strong sentiments on Twitter.

Some have reported how it can be a great snack on the go or how it can save water or manpower needed to wash spoons and plates.

Others pointed to the fact that idli sambar is actually a dish where you dip soft round idlis into tangy sambar and mash it using your hands and enjoy the authentic taste, and this quirky version is unacceptable:

Lastly, many have also pointed out that there is actually a type of idli that is formed into leaves and has a similar cylindrical shape, but is enjoyed without the sticks and dips.
