She is a leader in her own right and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would "very much" like a dish in her own name at Delhi's most famous restaurant, which already has two platters dedicated to her husband and daughter.

A beaming Clinton, wearing a turquoise business suit, expressed a keen desire to have a dish named after her at the Maurya Sheraton hotel's Bukhara restaurant. "I hope so that they have my own dish. I would like it very much," she told NDTV in an interview in Gurgaon.

The five-star's menu has a 'Presidential Platter', named after Hillary Clinton's husband and former US president Bill Clinton, and a 'Chelsea Platter', named after their daughter.

The three had visited India and stayed at the hotel in 2000, when Bill Clinton was president. They had dined at the Bukhara, which is famous for its Indian dishes.

The Presidential Platter, costing Rs 4,700, comprises non-vegetarian food that Clinton ordered and the Chelsea Platter, priced at Rs 4,200, has vegetarian dishes that Chelsea had preferred.

The two dishes continue to be served till date and are a hit with guests.
