"#Taiwan is lucky to be home to many Indian restaurants, & Taiwanese people love them. I always go for chana masala and naan, while #chai always takes me back to my travels in #India, and memories of a vibrant, diverse & colourful country. What are your favourite Indian dishes?," she wrote.

Ing-wen also asked her 1.3 million followers to share their favourite Indian dishes. The comments section of the tweet is a food lovers heaven as people shared images and names of their favourite foods.
