Meet Mastanamma, who recently celebrated her 106th birthday.Let's Talk Random Meet the 106 year old YouTube sensation who is rocking the culinary world Food and Fun Lifestyle RANDOM Trending

So, it all started when her great-grandson wanted to start a YouTube channel- CountryFoods. He wanted to showcase the traditional recipes and was looking for someone who can create those recipes in the most authentic style. That’s when he thought, who can be better than her granny? Because not just him, everyone around her loved her for her spirit and cooking skills
So, he approached her with the idea but she could not relate to it (for obvious reasons), infact she found it funny. But she still gave it a try and now she loves her new found stardom.
And, everyone who sees her can’t help falling in love with her infectious energy, warmth and of course her lip-smacking recipes.
Till now, this sensation has gained over 200,000 subscribers on her channel. We also appreciate her grandson-Laxman for his brilliant idea and execution. He swears by her eggplant/brinjal curry recipe, you should check it out too and since we loved her unique style of cooking, we have added one recipe here. But before that, check out this video that talks about her story.

Inspired? now, check out her amazing chicken recipe cooked in the watermelon shell.
