US President Donald Trump will be presented with an assortment of food, but it will be an all-vegetarian spread
Ahmedabad: US President Donald Trump landed at Ahmedabad airport today and is on a two-day visit to India. PM Narendra Modi greeted him with a warm hug.
But all are curious to know what the US President and his wife will eat in Gujarat. As reported by a popular website, the President will be served an all-vegetarian meal.
But who are the hands behind Donald Trump's Gujarati all-veg cuisine?
Suresh Khanna, a chef from Ahmedabad, has been given the responsibility of preparing the food.
Special Khaman is being prepared as US President & First Lady Melania Trump like Khaman a lot. The menu includes only veg items; it'll be cooked in Gujarati style. Food inspectors will be tasting food first, then after a thorough check, it will be served to guests, ANI reported.
Chef Suresh Khanna: The menu includes local Gujarati food items such as Khaman and special Gujarati ginger tea, broccolian-corn samosa, ice tea, green tea&multi-grain cookies; it has been approved by the concerned dept. Preparations are underway. https://t.co/ttcrYbSpf3— ANI (@ANI) February 23, 2020
Khaman Dhokla to samosa:
The menu includes Khaman Dhokla, special Gujarati ginger tea, broccoli-and-corn samosa, ice-tea, green tea, and multi-grain cookies.
But as per protocol, food inspectors will taste the food first and only then will the President fill his stomach.
What surprises people though is that the President is a big fan of fast foods and Diet Coke. He also avoids coffee and is a teetotaller.
The website added that during one of the US government shutdowns - which included a shutdown of the White House kitchens - Trump ordered a complete fast-food feast of pizzas, 1000 Hamburgers and fries for dinner while hosting college football champions -Clemson Tigers University. It further states that Trump reportedly has a "little red button" in the Resolute Desk which, when pushed, prompts the staff to serve him with fresh Diet Coke.
Donald and Melania Trump will visit Delhi and Gujarat on February 24-25 - marking his first presidential visit to India. The trip - which is his first foreign visit since his impeachment acquittal, will include the 'Namaste Trump' event at Ahmedabad's Motera Stadium before he leaves for Agra and then New Delhi. On the way to the stadium, a roadshow has been organised in which thousands are expected to greet the leaders.
Post Namaste Trump:
After the 'Namaste Trump' event, the US President will visit Gandhiji's Sabarmati Ashram after which he will fly to Agra - where he will be received by Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath.
The first couple will visit the Taj Mahal and then head to New Delhi. The next day, on February 25, President Trump and his delegation will hold dialogue with the Indian leadership and both leaders will pay respects to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat.
