Pet puja: Modi enjoys simple vegetarian lunch of dal, chapati in Nepal

August 03, 2014 14:05 IST

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday had simple vegetarian meal prepared by an Indian chef for lunch after his arrival on a two-day official visit. “He (Modi) likes to have simple vegetarian foods like nan roti, dal and vegetables,” a chef said.

His dishes were specially prepared under the guidance of head chef Nanda Kumar Gopi, who hails from India. For breakfast, he prefers to have masala tea, and likes to take sweet lime juice.

All the fruits and vegetables are locally available here. Modi will dine with his Nepalese counterpart Sushil Koirala, who is hosting a dinner in his honour at a five star hotel.

Prior to dinner, Modi will attend a reception hosted by Indian Ambassador Ranjit Rae in the evening. President Ram Baran Yadav will host him for lunch at Rastrapati Bhawan on Monday.
