Netizens On Twitter Start A Debate

This tweet has received many comments, especially from people who love misal. One of the users wrote that ‘the man was committing blasphemy’- a strong reaction, with a funny emoji. However, another comment was a recommendation of restaurants where he can try the dish and then form an opinion about it. While hitting the right feelings of Mumbaikars, one person wrote: ‘Misal pav is an emotion and not just a dish’. Though he respects the man’s opinion, this dish was created for mill workers, an experiment that led to this innovation. And, people have connected with it for a long time.

Regarding the ghooghni comment, one of the users wrote that ‘it makes the ghooghni better’. Interestingly, a few of them agreed that misal is no big deal, and it’s not even a dish. One of them commented that ‘he loves Bhajji pav but what is even a misal pav’.
