Not every twist in a recipe can be a hit. And foodies of Twitter proved it when chef Sanjeev Kapoor introduced a new dish, calling it Malabar Paneer. Within no time, all hell broke loose with his experimental dish irking many social media users. Their demands? Just keep paneer away from Kerela.
Kapoor posted the experimental aromatic recipe from Malabar, a costal region in Kerela mostly known for its beef and chicken dishes, on his social media timeline.
"Malabar Paneer — A wonderful Malabar dish that has the flavors spicies and offers several gastronomic opportunities. The food is generally fresh, aromatic and flavored. For more such interesting recipes click on https://goo.gl/ZJbkgX," he posted on Twitter.

TBH he was only doing his job — combining flavours and innovating. But Tweeple trolled him and his recipe mercilessly, mostly for its authenticity (or the lack of it). And for being vegetarian.
There is no dish called Malabar Paneer. Only Malabar beef or Malabar chicken.— Myopiclenses (@myopiclenses) April 18, 2018

As a malabari, Iam hearing about such a dish for first time. What does North Indian paneer had to do with malabar's traditional dishes— Sanjay C (@Raging_Ottayaan) April 18, 2018
Whoa, whoa, Twitter. We get your sentiments, but how about getting a taste of it? As for us, we're going to hold our vote until we've tried it ourselves.
