Indian culture is so vast that one cannot ever define it in just a few words. There is so much rich history, heritage and traditions that it would probably take years to explore each of these, including food. Every 20 km, you will find new ingredients and traditional dishes that each household makes differently. Every region offers you a new taste, and you can go on and on about the food as well. So, when someone from outside our culture tries our yummy Indian meals, it is always a delight to watch! We are always curious about how they would like the taste and the texture of the food or what their reaction will be! Recently, an elderly foreign couple tried some of our basic Indian sweets and namkeen, and their reaction is too adorable to miss.
In a video uploaded by Instagram user @invisbleindia, we can see her 90-year-old grandparents trying namkeen and ladoo for the first time. She has two boxes full of them on a table. In the video, the grandfather takes some of the namkeen, which he finds spicy in taste. At the same time, her grandmother can be seen relishing some ladoos. She says, "It's really sweet," and breaks into an adorable laugh. Check out the full video of their reaction here:
