In his caption, he states that meanwhile there are 100 kinds of paneer dishes hiding in a corner. He hilariously calls this a “Sita aur Gita” or a “Ram aur Shyam” or a “Raghu and Rajiv” situation. They are one and the same. Chef Saransh Goila states that every time someone asks him the difference he experiences “Hera Pheri scenes”.

In his opinion, it’s a simple situation. A smart restaurateur, 100 years ago, took Chicken added any of the above-mentioned name on the menu next to it. Next, the restaurateur mixed one or two gravies together like a formula to keep customers, engaged, happy and thoroughly confused.

Netizens Comment “Sab Golmaal Hai!”

Well, if Chef Saransh Goila, the genuis behind the delishaas Goila’s Butter Chicken himself can’t tell the difference, then who are we kidding! Well, Netizens had quite a field day in the comments section of his relatable post. One commented that it’s all about preparing a generic tomato-cashew gravy and then using permutation and combination, to prepare different dishes out of it.
