    When in the Rashtrapati Bhavan, guests have too much to handle for their taste buds. From succulent galouti kebab and patrani machchi for appetizers to murg korma and bedmi aaloo, the gourmets may find the state dinners at one of the largest permanently occupied dwellings in the world as mindblowing as the architecture and interiors. Wait did we talk about the lauki nazakat and keoti dal?
    Food plays an important role here. After crossing several staircases and corridors one finally enters the grand kitchen that is ruled by the President’s executive chef Machindra Kasture. This is his territory. Here he decides what to feed the President, his family and his VIP guests. He leads a team of 26 chefs, cooks and assistants.
    Kasture, who was recently awarded the ‘Best Chef of India’ is the one the President trusts both for his personal and state meals and the man proudly does what he is best at doing. The presidential kitchen is a sight to look at. With a separate room each for chopping vegetables, butchering, bakery, confectionary, Chinese cooking and western cooking to a room exclusively for preparing Indian foods, the place is nothing less than a foodie kingdom.
    Huge refrigerators, mixers, blenders, tandoor ovens and high-capacity ovens- there’s everything that you need to serve meals to around 1500 guests at a time. Kasture makes sure that food for the foreign delegations are prepared keeping in mind their dietary restrictions and food allergies.
    Well, what the President prefers personally? Aaloo posto, leafy vegetables, fish and sondesh. We smell jalebis and pineapple halwa! What about you?
