Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen has spoken about her fondness for Indian food, saying the east Asian country was lucky to be home to many Indian restaurants which the local people “love them.”
She took to Twitter to say that she likes to eat chana masala and naan which tea reminds of her visits to India. “#Taiwan is lucky to be home to many Indian restaurants, & Taiwanese people love them. I always choose chana masala and naan, while #chai always takes me back to my travels in #India, and memories of a vibrant, diverse & colorful country. What are your favorite Indian dishes?” she wrote on the microblogging website.
Along with the tweet, she shared a picture of a tasty platter of rice, naan, a vibrant salad, and a variety of other dishes, including the Taiwanese president’s favorite chana masala, and a cup of tea on the side.

Foreign leaders’ love for Indian food isn’t too uncommon. In May, Australian prime minister Scott Morrison made the favored Indian snack samosa reception during the lockdown across countries because of the coronavirus pandemic and tagged his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi during a tweet sharing the images.
“Sunday ScoMosas with mango chutney, all made from scratch – including the chutney! A pity my meeting with @narendramodi within the week is by videolink. They’re vegetarian, I’d have liked to share them with him,” Morrison had posted on Twitter.
Modi also replied to him saying, the samosas looked delicious which he hoped to enjoy the snack together after the pandemic. “Connected by the Indian Ocean, united by the Indian Samosa! Looks delicious, PM @ScottMorrisonMP! Once we achieve a decisive victory against COVID-19, we’ll enjoy the Samosas together. Looking forward to our video meet on the 4th,” he had tweeted.
