Darjeeling, 13 July

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, showcasing her innovative skills of interacting with people, made ‘pani puri’ at a roadside stall in Darjeeling and served a delicious snack to the children and tourists visiting the hill.

In a video that went viral on social media, the Trinamool Congress supremo was seen filling crispy hollow ‘puris’ with mashed potatoes dipped in tamarind water and serving them to people on Tuesday.

She showed her expertise in making phuchka, as it is called ‘pani puri’ in West Bengal, while visiting a stall run by women of a Self Help Group (SHG) in the ‘Queen of the Hills’.

Sharing the video, TMC tweeted: “Our Honorable President @MamataOfficial visited Sunday Haat, a SHG run food stall in Darjeeling. Showing her appreciation for the hard work of women, she prepares Bengal’s favourite, Puchka. I joined them and also fed them. Delicious breakfast enthusiastic kids!”

During her last visit to Darjeeling, Banerjee made popular Tibetan food ‘momos’ at a roadside stall in the hills.
