Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison showed off his culinary skills on Twitter when he posted a picture of him holding a tray full of “ScoMosas”, a deep fried snack he claims to have made from scratch. The triangular shaped savory, known as samosa, is usually stuffed with spicy potato filling in India. Morrison remembered his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, saying it’s a pity their meeting this week in via video link. “They’re vegetarian, I would have liked to share them with him.”

“Sunday ScoMosas with mango chutney, all made from scratch – including the chutney!” the Australian PM shared on Twitter sharing two photos of the dish prepared by him. Within three hours, Morrison’s tweet has been retweeted nearly eight thousand time and have close to 40 thousand likes and led ‘samosa’ to trend on the micro-blogging site.

On Instagram, Morrison uploaded more photos showing how he made the desi snack folding each one with his version of the potato filling.

As the tweet created a buzz online, it reached Prime Minister Narendra Modi too and he replied with a sweet message saying the popular Indian snacks prepared by Scott looks “delicious”.

Many on social media were impressed by the PM Morrison’s culinary skills and quipped maybe it’s time for him to try out in MasterChef Australia. It also led to some food jokes online.

The Australian prime minister was scheduled to visit India in January but it was called off due to the devastating bushfires that raged across the country. A rescheduled visit in May had to be converted into a virtual summit due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Plans are being chalked out for a virtual summit with PM Morrison in June, possibly June 4.
