Gujarati Khichdi, Samosa & Modi Hug: What Australian PM Scott Morrison Told PM Modi?

On Sunday, the Australian PM Morrison had shared a picture on Twitter with popular Indian snack samosas and offered to share them with PM Modi. 

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison offered to make Gujarati Khichdi while speaking to Prime Minister Modi on Thursday via video conferencing. PM Morrison also expressed his desire to meet PM Modi in person.

“I wish I could be there for what has become the famous Modi hug. And I have to share my samosas, we had a bit of fun over the weekend. Next time, it has to be the Gujarati khichdi which I know is your favourite, as you mentioned to me before. I’ll try that out of the kitchen before next time we meet in person,” the Australian Prime Minister said at a virtual summit between two leaders.

PM Modi delighted by the gesture, said, “I am pleased to know about your offer. The samosas you made is being talked about a lot here in India. Now that you’ve mentioned khichdi, it will make Gujaratis very happy. Many Gujarati families live in Australia.”

“We call it by different names in different parts of the country, but khichdi is famous in entire India,” PM Modi further added.

“Sunday ScoMosas with mango chutney, all made from scratch – including the chutney! A pity my meeting with @narendramodi this week is by videolink. They’re vegetarian, I would have liked to share them with him,” PM Morrison had tweeted tagging PM Modi.

PM Modi, responding to the post, said, “Connected by the Indian Ocean, united by the Indian Samosa! Looks delicious, PM @ScottMorrisonMP! Once we achieve a decisive victory against COVID-19, we will enjoy the Samosas together. Looking forward to our video meet on the 4th.”
