Scott Morrison took to Instagram to share glimpses of his complete desi meal.
If nothing else, food definitely connects the whole world. Why else would butter chicken impress international chefs or pasta would melt our hearts, instantly? The world is a fan of Indian spices and Indians love to nosh on pancakes, pastas, pizzas and more. People bond over food! It not only pleases our taste buds but often brings countries together. The Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, recently proved the same. He recently cooked a feast at home to celebrate the new trade agreement signed between India and Australia. And can you guess what was on the menu?
It was none other than a bowl full of comforting khichdi and a curry that made it to the menu of Morrison and his family’s ‘curry night’. He took to Instagram to share glimpses of his complete desi meal. In the first picture, we could see PM Morrison with a pot full of khichdi and a pan by the side. The second picture had some desi-style curry with a garnish of dhania and curry leaves. Take a look:
It looks like a complete Gujarati meal as Morrison revealed in his caption. "To celebrate our new trade agreement with India, the curries I chose to cook for curry night tonight are all from my dear friend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Gujarat province, including his favourite Khichdi," he wrote alongside the pictures. "Jen, girls and mum all approve," he added.
For the unversed, earlier this week, India and Australia signed an economic cooperation and trade agreement, under which Canberra would provide duty-free access in its market for 95% of Indian goods such as textiles, leather, furniture, jewellery and machinery.
The pictures shared by the Australian Prime Minister took the internet by storm in no time, as people started sharing their reactions to it. The post garnered 24k likes and thousands of comments on it.
"Enjoy your dinner," read one comment while another person wrote "Looks amazing." A third person stated, "Looks delicious." Some comments also tagged him as “Best PM” and “Best Dad”.
