He went on to describe the nutritional content of Upma, which according to him was primarily carbs.

I think we should all collectively boycott upma,” he concluded.
A flurry of reactions poured into the post about Upma. Some users agreed that the dish was overrated and could easily be substituted for Idli or Dosa instead.
