He is in love with Indian cuisines and his Instagram feed is a proof of it. 

Jake dedicates each week to a particular state in India and cooks an array of dishes from there. So far, he has tried his hand at preparing food dishes of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Karnataka and Punjab. This time, he prepared the Idli Sambar as a part of the Tamil Nadu week.

Recently, he prepared rava idli and sambar and shared in his Instragram handle. And the social media users loved his cooking style and rated his preparation a 10/10.

“Idli & sambar I think i’ve got the sambar down now, let me know I made normal idli the other week so i wanted to try another variety. Rava (semolina) idli is easier to make and tastes VERY similar even though originally from Karnataka,” reads the video caption.
