PRIME Minister Narendra Modi is not a fussy eater and open to experimenting with food and flavours as long as they are vegetarian, celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor said.
Kapoor, who cooked for Modi during his visit to the UAE, said the prime minister is open to trying different dishes as long as they have no meat, poultry or eggs in them.
He does not have any allergies which makes it easier to tailor his meals. Dosas, beetroot minced kebabs and the comfort Indian food dal and rice always feature on his plate, the chef said.

“He believes in simple vegetarian food and is a believer that food is a great way to learn about each other’s countries and cultures. So there was a lot of food that fused elements from India and the UAE,” Kapoor was quoted as saying by the Gulf News.

The leading chef, who has his restaurants ‘The Signature’ in Dubai and ‘The Yellow Chilli’ in Abu Dhabi, said the Prime Minister has taught him a thing or two about food during his tour.

“We were talking about parathas and he told me about this paratha made with drum-sticks. It sounded very interesting and I told him that I am going to try it in my kitchen,” said Kapoor.
