Delhi food lovers couldn't agree more with the comedian's take.

Indians love fusion, especially if it involves food. One of the best examples in this regard is Indian Chinese cuisine. But whether the product of fusion is always good has been hotly debated for ages. Now, one man’s video asking sushi connoisseurs to come together to “save the authenticity” of sushi is winning the internet.

Comedian Gaurav Kapoor shared his take on Delhi’s fusion cuisine culture recently on Instagram, starting a laughing riot online. In his rant on Instagram Reels, he requested the “stakeholders” of Sushi to prevent the famous dish from being sold in west Delhi, particularly Vikaspuri.

Stating that the taste of momos, since their introduction in Vikaspuri two decades ago, have deviated from their original taste, Kapoor argued that desi people’s love for sushi will soon lead to the birth of ‘Tandoori sushi’, ‘Malai sushi’ and even ‘Gravy sushi’.

“Japaneeo, abhi waqt hai, rok lo. Aisi aisi cheezein daal denge na sushi mein. Paneer daal denge sushi mein. Chaap daal denge. Soya sauce ke naam pe, Coca-Cola ke andar sushi daal denge (Japanese people please stop this from happening. People will put even paneer in sushi. Instead of soya sauce, people will dip sushi rolls in Coca Cola),” he said.

Although some of Kapoor’s claims may have seemed to be outrageous on first instance, many agreed with his predictions pointing out that desi people have been making chocolate samosa pav and Oreo Maggi .

And as the video went viral, many netizens said unusual sushi fusions already exist.

As the comedian’s take on Delhi food culture started a hilarious conversation online, he shared a second part of the video. Kapoor went on to suggest some desi names for sushi joints, and quipped that in a few years such fusion Japanese joints can even launch a franchise.

Do you agree with him?
