Biryani with Ketchup

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Hap­less Ali San, a young man from Lon­don of Ira­nian ori­gin, was in­un­dated with good-na­tured abuse after post­ing a pic­ture on Twit­ter of a plate of biryani ac­com­pa­nied by ketchup and may­on­naise. “Best way to eat biryani,” Ali wrote, adding a string of heart-eyed emo­jis. Ira­ni­ans tried to dis­own him, pass­ing him on to the In­di­ans to deal with, who in turn washed their hands off him, pass­ing him on to the Pak­ista­nis who in turn... fi­nally, Ali re­as­sured his crit­ics: “It’s fine y’all, white peo­ple will ac­cept me.” Judg­ing by the look of his biryani though, it could only have been im­proved by ketchup and may­on­naise.
