Poha or upma? Shabana Azmi and Twitter divided over breakfast dish
Upma or poha? Take a look at the picture and decide for yourself.bollywood Updated: Oct 09, 2017 18:56 IST
Actor Shabana Azmi posted a picture of a dish cooked by her friend during her trip to Florence, Italy. While the dish in the photo looks delicious and made many users on Twitter hungry, there is a slight catch.
Twitterati don’t agree with what Azmi calls the dish.

The picture appears to be of the north Indian dish poha, which is made with flattened rice and veggies like onion, potatoes, and peas, and spices.
Azmi, however, calls it upma - a common south Indian/Maharashtrian breakfast dish that has dry roasted semolina or coarse rice flour cooked as a thick porridge.
Twitter users were quick to point out that the dish in the picture wasn’t upma but poha. Others mocked the actor by sharing pictures of dishes but calling them other names.
