Indian food is a festival in itself. The perfect blend of seasonings and a generous amount of love makes it flavourful and irresistible. That’s why even foreigners can’t stop relishing them. And among those who often turn to desi flavors when they seek comfort food is Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.
Tsai recently took to Twitter and shared that Taiwan is home to many Indian restaurants and surprisingly, Taiwanese people love them. She also added that sipping on Chai transports her back to when she visited India.
#Taiwan is lucky to be home to many Indian restaurants, & Taiwanese people love them. I always go for chana masala and naan, while #chai always takes me back to my travels in #India, and memories of a vibrant, diverse & colourful country. What are your favourite Indian dishes? pic.twitter.com/IJbf5yZFLY

My Favourite is #JagganathTemple Mahaprasad at Puri, Odisha. It contains 56 dishes in Total. And 100% Veg. Kindly request your officials to arrange it for you. As the dishes will NOT get destroyed,due to its clay pots and extremely rare unique, ancient method of Divine Cooking. pic.twitter.com/1zhgzkGeif
