Smriti Irani teaches Bill Gates how to cook khichdi
India's Union Minister Smriti Irani took to social media on Thursday and shared a video of Microsoft Co-Founder Bill Gates cooking khichdi at an event.
He addressed important issues such as climate change, nutrition, health and poverty several times during the trip.
Gates lauded the campaign for prioritising the empowerment of women and child nutrition. "I have to say that the Poshan campaign brings together many things that are great priorities.
She told the media, "Never before has a partner from the women and child development been adventurous enough to venture near the making of khichdi."
During his trip, the billionaire met many bigwigs. Ratan Tata, Anand Mahindra and Sachin Tendulkar to name a few.
This was Gates' first visit to India since the pandemic. Right before his trip started, the Microsoft founder took to Twitter to praise the country and its untapped potential for innovation.
Gates and Irani prepared the millet khichdi, which is a south Asian cuisine made of rice and lentils, in a pan and served it to the guests.
