Woman Gets Schooled By Netizens For Calling Paddus “Aloo Cutlet In Shape Of Laddoos”

Ask a South Indian, the sheer of joy of biting into a piping hot paddu. And they’d give you a big smile. Paddu is a South Indian dish made with a batter of black lentils and rice. This vegetarian dish is often lauded as it’s healthy yet perfect to drive away hunger pangs. Recently, an X user described paddus as “aloo cutlet in the shape of paddus” and Netizens weren’t forgiving.

X User Says Paddus Have Aloo

An X user, @Naina_2728 shared a picture of delicious-looking paddus with three different kinds of chutneys.  In her caption she stated that she tried paddus for the first time. She adds that Southies know how to make aloo cutlet in the shape of laddoo. Next to the paddus is a bowl of sambar. The picture certainly looked mouth-watering but her description of paddus irked quite a few Netizens. 

Netizens shared sarcastic comments about the same. @shek_dev shares a picture of a lavish South Indian meal served on a banana leaf and goes on to say sarcastically, “that they fold it and put it in their mouth at the end of the meal”. To this, Naina jokes it’s like, “damn khayeka paan banaras wala”.

Netizens Baffled By Her Description Of Paddus

@daglihet comments, that she will soon break the record of getting cancelled multiple times for food takes.

@adityafountane says that she is about to be cancelled for it and the X user is here for it. Another X user, @Kushagr142 jokes that South Indians have discovered Vada Pav. Similarly, @0xdeepak_eth was shocked to notice paddus stuffed with aloo. @vikasbz uses this opportunity to throw in a fun fact about paddus— They are made with the same batter as dosa or idli.

Most Netizens were just baffled with her description of paddus as “aloo cutlet in the shape of laddoos”. Paddus are not made with potatoes, so many wanted to know what kind of paddus she ate in the first place. Another X user felt it was a spherical dosa and that would have been a better description.


Meanwhile, have you eaten paddus? And do you agree with the X user’s description?
