TRICHY: “Vengayam … Thayir … Kalluppu,” cried Congress Director Rahul Gandhi as he prepared onion rraita. “It’s good,” Rahul said as he tested it after mixing them. One of the cooks who stood by said, “You were just preparing it.”
The video on the YouTube channel – Village Cooking Channel – shows Rahul Gandhi preparing onion raita and later eating mushroom biryani. It was released on Friday evening.
The Village Cooking Channel is run by a family in the village of Chinna Veeramangalam in the Pudukkottai district of Tamil Nadu.
The video was filmed on January 25 on the outskirts of Karur town during the Congress leader’s three-day political campaign in the state. The meeting between the YouTubers and Rahul Gandhi was scheduled by the Karur Congressman Jothimani Sennimalai.
The 14-minute video shows Rahul Gandhi interacting with the YouTubers and asking them about Tamil cuisine. “We were surprised to find out that he was following our videos. He used the same tone and slang as our grandpa when he added the ingredients, ”said V Ayyanar, a member of the broadcaster.
“We can’t believe a leader like Rahul Gandhi was with us for about 35 minutes. He (Rahul) asked about our aspirations. We shared our interest in traveling abroad and cooking dishes. He promised to help us, ”said V Subramanian, cameraman for the YouTube channel.
“We weren’t sure if Rahul Gandhi would eat non-vegetarian food. So we decided to cook mushroom biriyani, ”added Subramanian.
After eating the mushroom biryani sitting on a mat, Rahul said in Tamil: ‘Romba nalla irukku’ (it is really good).
Before leaving, Rahul said, “The next time I come, you have to get me to try the termite (eesal or winged termite).” Two years ago the broadcaster released a video about preparing a dish with winged termites.
Well, Rahul, who speaks late about the Tamil spirit, has one more reason to visit the state.
