Monsoon often dictates our food mood. From craving hot deep-fried pakoras to something sweet and delicious, food cravings in this season range from savoury to sweet to spicy and tangy. Indulging her sweet tooth in this rainy season is none other than Union minister Smriti Irani. She posted a boomerang of a box full of tasty homemade choorma laddoos made by her sister-in-law for her. Choorma laddoos are an Indian delicacy made by deep-frying balls of wheat flour in ghee and then grinding them into a coarse powder called choorma. The choorma is then mixed with jaggery or sugar and rolled into balls called laddoos.
This desi mithai is eaten during Ganesh Chaturthi and is a popular delicacy in the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Maharashtra.
Smriti Irani is certainly a foodie. Earlier, the union minister had posted pictures of a scrumptious meal that she enjoyed with her family on her social media account. Guess who the chef was? It was none other than Smriti Irani's daughter, Zoish Irani. Like any parent would, Smriti Irani proudly showed off her daughter's culinary skills with pictures of the tasty spread that included a bowl of dim sums topped with chili oil, a vegetable pizza, and crispy potatoes covered in a sauce.
