Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee surprised locals in Darjeeling as she took over a momo stall in the Himalayan town, videos on Twitter show.
Dressed in her trademark blue and white saree and a shawl, the Trinamool Congress chief is seen rolling the dough and then wrapping a momo with fillings as several locals look on and camera shutters click. She smiles as she finishes prepping the item and places it on a plate, ready to be cooked.
She helped prepare the hugely popular local delicacy with women of "Anju" – a self-help group. The video, shared on Twitter, soon went viral.
