It is a moment of pride for every Indian when our cuisine gets global recognition. From chef-author Nigella Lawson to US Vice President Kamala Harris, actor-producer Mindy Kaling and even television show host Padma Lakshmi; many well-known personalities have expressed their love for the cuisine. Recently, American chef Rick Bayless too whipped up a lavish Indian dinner for his son-in-law’s birthday. The photos of the delicious Butter Chicken, Saag and Parathas had garnered immense appreciation from Indians. And now, Desi Twitter is thrilled to see a picture of Australian sports journalist Chloe Amanda-Bailey feasting on yummy Chole Bhature. Take a look:
