When Hersha Patel shared an egg fried rice recipe on BBC Food, Asia went into meltdown. Now the Malaysian YouTuber who absolutely roasted her, is working with her on a video collaboration to correct her faux pas.
Hersha Patel’s video recipe for egg fried rice sent Asian rice lovers into a tailspin when she made the fatal mistake of washing the rice after cooking it.
It’s agreed that Asian cooks are the authorities on rice, so when they reacted in such unified horror at the BBC chef washing her cooked rice, you should assume they know what they’re on about.
One of Patel’s biggest critics was London-based Malaysian YouTuber Nigel Ng aka 'Uncle Roger', who has now revealed that he met up with Patel for dinner to laugh about the viral phenomenon and to discuss ways they can work together on a video project.
“Go follow her. Hersha is really good, she’s a great presenter, funny, but don’t post anything mean on her Instagram, all right? Otherwise, Uncle Roger will come for you,” Ng was heard saying in the video post.
Ng’s Uncle Roger DISGUSTED by this Egg Fried Rice video was posted earlier this month but only went viral last week and has racked up nearly 6 million views since.
