Watch: Funny video shows Indians and their obsession with Indian food in foreign lands


It’s no secret that we Indians love food! Food, for us, is a celebration of our existence. From rich and robust curries to a list of mouth-watering spicy and savory snacks, India boasts of many gastronomic gems that are downright irresistible! From chaat and biryani to Kalia dimer and Undhiyu, the flavors spread across all 28 states and 8 union territories are extraordinary, to say the least. Although we are open to trying new flavors and cuisines, we find ourselves returning to classic Indian specialties whenever we want to indulge. In fact, many of us Indians will not give up Indian delicacies even when we are in foreign countries.

Viraj Ghelani is an actor and stand-up comedian known for his sketches about Indian families. His most recent video particularly touched the hearts of Desi foodies and Indians living outside the country. Hilariously, Viraj shows that Indians can’t help but obsess over Indian food even when they’re abroad. Viraj can be seen dramatically driven to an Indian restaurant in Spain and ordering the quintessential samosa once he is there. The video garnered over 795,000 views, 118,000 likes and 507 comments. Take a look at the video:
