Social distancing is gradually becoming the norm across the globe in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Celebrities being no exception to this, have also self quarantined. Judging from their social media activity it seems that self-isolation has brought the best and worst out of them.
For Kumail Nanjiani the latter seems to be the case. The actor recently posted a picture of biryani he himself made but with his own unique spin.
Describing it as 'cauliflower rice biryani', the Silicon Valley star admitted that desis would deem it as an 'abomination'. However, he asserted that it still tastes good.
"Today in who-have-I-become, I made cauliflower rice biryani.
I know desi people will consider this an abomination. I agree with you. I’m rolling my eyes at me too. But it tasted pretty dang good," he said.
It would be an understatement to say that desis were quite upset at Nanjiani's innovation.

Biryani has a special place for Indians. Please do not label such atrocities as biryani. Hey Bhagwan, how do I unsee this?— BINOD (@dweepatheameri1) March 23, 2020

Perhaps the actor should look for pursuits other than cooking to keep himself occupied in quarantine.
