Padma Lakshmi made Puliyodharai and dedicated it to Kamala Harris. She says that Kamala Harris like it so she does
Kamala Devi Harris made history twice on January 20. Not only was she the first-ever female to become the Vice-President after hundreds of year, but she was also the first woman of colour to step into the White House as the second most powerful person in the United States.
Indeed, a lot of chatter has been ensuing about the same. While, on one hand, her win has tipped the balance in terms of gender inequality. On the other hand, having a woman of colour becoming the vice-president of the world’s most powerful country is an added bonus for sure.
Harris’ Indian heritage has been the talk of the town ever since she ran for VP alongside Biden. The months running up to the elections, desi netizens, specifically the Tamilians, thumped their chest with pride. Right from her talks about her mother to her favourite dish to cook, it was all anyone could talk about.
Speaking of food, model and anchor Padma Lakshmi took to her Instagram account and posted a video of her cooking Tamarind Rice. This dish is a staple in many Tamil Nadu households and happens to be Madam VP’s favourite as well.
“We made Tamarind Rice in honor of our new VP @/kamalaharris,” the caption said.
