Drool! These food miniatures will brighten your day

Last updated on: July 04, 2018 14:57 IST

Biryani, appam, dosa, upma, vada pav...name it and you'll find it here.

Meet Shilpa Mitha, a food miniaturist and Chennaiite, who has been creating some stunning miniature magnets. 

Her creations, which are made of clay, are a visual treat to her Instagram followers.

Back in 2015, Shilpa started her journey on Instagram and posted a miniature version of Chef Heston Blumenthal's Botrytis Cinerea.

She followed it with miniatures of Hyderabadi biryani, pizza, a south Indian palette and Kerala's karimeen pollichadhu.

In her initial pics, she placed the miniatures next to a five rupee coin, to give her fans an indication of the actual size. 

But it was later in 2017, when she posted a pic of a miniature vada pav on Independence Day, that made people sit up and take note of her. 

Take a look at some of her stunning creations!
