.@BillGates and I had a blast making Indian Roti together. I just got back from Bihar, India where I met wheat farmers whose yields have been increased thanks to new early sowing technologies and women from “Didi Ki Rasoi” canteens who shared their expertise in making Roti. pic.twitter.com/CAb86CgjR3

The duo cooked their rotis on traditional Indian Tawa and topped it with Ghee.
The duo trying a hand at making rotis caught Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attention who took to Instagram to praise their effort at trying the Indian staple.
PM Modi shared their video on his Instagram handle and wrote ‘superb’ while tagging Bill Gates. Taking forward his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ sentiment, he mentioned that India’s latest trend is Millets, which is very healthy.

He suggested Bill Gates could try Millet’s delicacies as well.
For the unaware, 2023 is the International Year of Millets. In December, right before entering the New Year, PM Modi’s government organized a Millet-themed buffet for the parliamentarians.
The menu had a wide range of coarse grains delicacies. Bajra Khichdi, Bajra Cake and Kheer, Ragi roti, Ragi Dosa, Haldi ki Sabji, and Churma.
Prime Minister, in his Mann Ki Baat address to the citizens, spoke about Millets in great detail.
Talking about celebrating September as the month of Nutrition, he talked about the nutritional needs of children as well as mothers.
