Kamala Harris, the first Asian American to be chosen for US election 2020 vice-presidential pick, has been garnering a lot of attention for her Indian roots.
The politician, whose mother had migrated to the US from Tamil Nadu, recently took to Instagram to reveal “three signs you grew up Indian-American”.
The Instagram video that Harris posted was from her 2019 cooking video with actor Mindy Kaling, where the women were seen bonding over their shared Indian roots while cooking masala dosa.

* Lots of dal: In the video, the celebs were seen eating dal and roti.
