TV personality Tan France posts YouTube tutorial on roti

The British-born France is a fashion expert in the Netflix series “Queer Eye.”

So, let’s tackle one of the major desi problems apart from nosey parents. How in the world does one make perfectly round rotis? But if you thought the answer to this lies with your desi mum, then, well, you may be in for a surprise.

The humble roti just got a glam makeover, as popular designer, TV personality and author Tan France just showed all his fans how to make the perfect Indian or Pakistani roti.

The TV star behind the American series Queer Eye on Netflix posted a YouTube tutorial on how to make a roti and showed a step-by-step procedure on making rotis in his own kitchen.

Not just that, the British-born, America-based designer of Pakistani heritage also shared with millions of his fans that he learnt how to make rotis from his mom when he was just about 7-years-old!

The tutorial has already been viewed 265,193 times.

Not only did his desi fans were impressed by his gentle nod to the culture he grew up in, many also found it amusing to learn it from a designer who leads such a global life.

One Twitter user @sh1vani commented: “I’m getting shamed so hard by my mother right now. Just glad my nani doesn’t have internet.” Another user by the name Cosmic girl tweeted: “The tutorial we never knew, we needed.”

Another user, Christopher McDonald, tweeted: “Pitch a new show for Food Network. This looks good.”

Born Tanveer Wasim Safdar, France grew up in England to Muslim Pakistani parents. He currently is seen as the fashion expert in Queer Eye, currently in its third season, where he is featured alongside food expert Antoni Porowski and design expert Bobby Berk. France’s upcoming memoir, Naturally Tan, will be released in Summer 2019.
