Indian cuisine is diverse. One dish demands a dizzying array of ingredients, spices, and cooking techniques. It becomes difficult for many people to achieve the desired taste. But for those who frequently cook, following a recipe won’t be a problem. Even though we are all accustomed to Indian cooking, we might not anticipate a foreigner to prepare Indian dishes correctly. However, many Indian food lovers are breaking such a stereotype. One such Instagram cook who makes all kinds of Indian recipes is Jake Dryan (@plantfuture). Jake Dryan’s Instagram is filled with him experimenting and cooking Indian dishes. Recently, he made delicious-looking Rajasthani mirchi vadas, which has impressed the internet.
Jake Dryan uploaded a short reel on Instagram where she showed his way of making this popular Rajasthani snack. At the beginning of the video, he boils potatoes and smashes them. Then he adds spices such as red chilli powder, turmeric powder, pepper, and more. Later, he cuts the thick green chillies and fills them with the potato mix.
