Part of this journey also involves trying different food items from different regions of the country. In a reel posted on Instagram, bits of the journey and glimpses of what Rahul Gandhi ate on the Bharat Jodo Yatra was revealed. Following is the run-down of all the dishes mentioned in the reel.

Bongu Chicken, Telangana

A delicious Telugu dish, bongu chicken is traditionally cooked inside a bamboo shoot. Flavoured with assorted chillies and spices, the dish is finger-licking good. The dish is native to the tribe of Badrachalam and is traditionally made by them. It seems that Rahul Gandhi had a fun time not just eating the dish but also making it.

Rahul Gandhi also had a delicious delicacy from Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka which is essentially a sweet wheat porridge with jaggery. If it tastes as homely and cosy as it looks, it surely made Rahul Gandhi really happy.
