The American actor, director, and writer is also a self-confessed foodie.
There are several famous personalities of Indian origin who have settled outside the country and made a mark in their respective fields. One of them is the Indian-American celebrity Mindy Kaling. While she has written and directed several shows, it is The Mindy Project where we get to see the hidden acting talent in her. However, the highlight of the show is the fact that Mindy is a hard-core foodie who cannot let go of her cravings. In the show, she plays the character of a doctor who is so white-washed that she hardly enjoys Indian food. The reality seems to be quite different. Mindy has always been active on her social media, sharing tid-bits of her Indian meals with her followers.
Recently, Mindy took to her Instagram and shared glimpses of her delectable meal. No points for guessing what cuisine she was devouring. Consisting of some of the popular dishes from the Indian fare, her desi meal started off with some masala dosa. Dosa, for the unversed, is a crispy pancake from South India and the masala is a spicy mix of boiled and mashed potatoes. We could also spot a grainy coconut chutney on the side along with a tomato chutney. She captioned this story saying, “Dosa + Masala + Coconut Chutney + Tomato Chutney”.
Mindy is one of the few Indian-Americans who has always been in touch with the Indian flavours. Time and again, you would see her Instagram flooded with foodie pictures like the egg curry she made and posted at the time of Easter celebrations.
