Taiwan’s closeness with India has grown significantly ever since China showed India its true colours. Taiwan, which China claims its authority over, has invariably recognised itself as an independent country despite China claiming it as its own part. And though India never comments on the issue but Indians do consider it an independent country and this respects its emotions.
Indefinitely, Indian food has always been something that connects us with the world and Taiwan is no different.
Recently, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen, accepting her love for desi food, said that she is a fan of India’s Chana Masala, Naan and Chai and her tweet is winning the internet.
“#Taiwan is lucky to be home to many Indian restaurants, & Taiwanese people love them. I always go for chana masala and naan, while #chai always takes me back to my travels in #India, and memories of a vibrant, diverse & colourful country. What are your favourite Indian dishes?,” she wrote.
Ever since the President shared the picture of an Indian Thali on her Twitter handle, Indians just can’t stop but recommend her more Indian delicacies that she could feast on.

My favorite Indian food is spinach curry(Spinach and cheese curry) and bean soup (?).
Certainly, the bean soup was called dal. (May be misspelled 💦)
Also, I like chapati.
Indian food is very diverse. And it is a dish with a deep taste.😍😍😍

My Favourite is #JagganathTemple Mahaprasad at Puri, Odisha. It contains 56 dishes in Total. And 100% Veg. Kindly request your officials to arrange it for you. As the dishes will NOT get destroyed,due to its clay pots and extremely rare unique, ancient method of Divine Cooking. pic.twitter.com/1zhgzkGeif— NayakDebabraTa555 🇮🇳 (@NayakTa555) October 15, 2020

I can assure you I do love Indian food when I was in tw & in New York. Lamb vindaloo, butter chicken makhani, seafood tikka masala with naan and mango lassi are amazing. I like the richness of flavors derived from all sort of spices. I did promote it a lot to my friends!— George Lin (@GeorgeL46566756) October 15, 2020
I’d like to share a #specialty of my #hometown #Indore & favorite of my daughter: #poha – a delicious dish from flattened rice flakes, often eaten as #breakfast with a cup of hot #masalachai . Sadly restaurants in Taiwan don’t have it, but I’d be honored to make some for @iingwen pic.twitter.com/Mr4eEDr6Qf— Priya Lee Lalwani (@priyatranslator) October 15, 2020
