Bilateral deals and international issues apart, US President Barack Obama will have an important culinary agenda when he travels to India in November this year.
He is not only eager to savour the ‘Hillary Platter’ — the dish Bukhara restaurant at ITC’s Maurya hotel in New Delhi created for the Secretary of State — he also wants an ‘Obama Platter’ named after him.
Obama is curious to know what is offered on the “Hillary Platter” at Bukhara .As Obama greeted the gathered guests with Namaste he wondered, if the Hillary platter had chapati, amidst laughter at a reception hosted by Clinton in honour of External Affairs Minister, S.M. Krishna.
Someone from the audience suggested Obama that he must try it when he visits India. “I will try that plate,” Obama responded. “... and I intend to create an Obama Platter,” he said. PTI
