Sanjana Ganesan is currently in London and can you guess what she decided to feast on while there? If you’re thinking of fish and chips or scones, sadly, you’re mistaken. The sports presenter and cricketer Jasprit Bumrah’s wife decided to gorge on some Indian food while in London. And not just any Indian food, Sanjana indulged herself with some traditional South Indian food that included soft and fluffy hoppers known as appams. For the uninitiated, hoppers or appams are made using rice that has been soaked overnight and ground into a batter that is then left to ferment using yeast. Appams are popular in South India particularly in the state of Kerala.
Sanjana enjoyed the yummy appams with a delectable curry. She posted the picture along with a caption, wherein she wrote, “Drooling.”
Take a look at the delicious feast:
