The video has impressed desi foodies and also Indians living outside of the country, raking in over a million views.
Let’s just agree that most Indians are hardcore foodies. Be it the rich and robust curries or the endless servings of spicy and tantalising snacks, Indians are fans of it all. And why won’t we be? After all we have so many drool-worthy gastronomic gems that are simply irresistible. Imagine the diversity we have with 28 states and 8 union territories, each having its own specialty. And so, while we are always open to trying new flavours and cuisines, we find ourselves searching for the classic Indian delicacies each time we want to indulge to our heart's content. In fact, many of us would go on searching for Indian delicacies even while touring a foreign country. Isn’t that true?
That’s exactly what Viraj Ghelani - an actor and stand-up comedian, who is known for his spot-on skits about Indian families - hilariously showcased in his latest video. The video has impressed desi foodies and also Indians living outside of the country. In a funny way, Viraj shows that Indians cannot help but obsess over Indian food even when they are in a different country. Viraj can be seen dramatically led towards an Indian restaurant while in Spain. Once there, he orders for the quintessential samosa to satisfy his cravings. Take a look at the video:
