There is a huge buzz on social media as Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise visit to 'Hunar Haat' on Delhi's Rajpath, where he interacted with artisans and relished 'litti-chokha' and 'kulhad' tea. Taking to his Twitter handle, Modi shared the photos of his surprise visit and tweeted, "Had tasty Litti Chokha for lunch along with a hot cup of tea... #HunarHaat".

In the shared post, Modi can be seen enjoying a plate of the traditional dish 'litti-chokha', which is popular in Bihar, Jharkhand and parts of eastern Uttar Pradesh. He later had tea served in a 'kulhad' or earthen cup.


For the uninitiated, 'litti-chokha' is a traditional dish where the litti is made of whole wheat flour, stuffed with sattu (powder made out of black chana), herbs and spices and baked over coal or cow dung cakes and then finally sprinkled with desi ghee, while chokha is a mashed relish that is served with litti.


Modi also shared the same picture on his Instagram account with the caption, "Had excellent Litti Chokha for lunch. Have you tried this delicacy?"


So obviously, his tweet went viral and Twitterati have flooded the social media with their reactions.



The 20th edition of the 'Hunar Haat' was inaugurated at the India Gate lawns here on Thursday. The 10-day event, based on the theme of "Kaushal Ka Kam", will conclude on February 23.
