India’s oldest YouTuber from Andhra Pradesh is winning hearts all over with her cooking videos. 106 year old Mastanamma has over 2,50,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel and is well-known for making delicious dishes from the scratch. In fact, she’s being claimed to even be the world’s oldest YouTuber.
She gained fame via her cooking channel Country Foods as she is often seen making delicacies with easily available ingredients. Mastanamma cooks up delicious egg dosas, fish fry, bread omelette and even watermelon chicken.
The YouTube channel is managed by her grandson K Laxman. One of her videos of her talking about her life and fandom on her birthday has gained traction on social media. Love pours in for this dynamic granny from not just Andhra Pradesh, but from all over the world. Hailing from Gudiwada in Krishna district, what really wins our heart is how she’s a typical grandmother – ensuring everyone is fed and full at the end of every video.
Her grandson K Laxman came up with the idea when he prepared food for himself one night along with his friends. Speaking with Barcroft, he says, “On a hungry night, my friends and I prepared some food for ourselves, and we thought about starting a YouTube channel, so that people could watch and learn from these cooking tutorials. Our first video went viral surprisingly. That was when I decided to run this channel, to get people to know and understand the traditional way of cooking with fresh ingredients, with the help of my grandmother. She didn’t understand what was happening when we were filming the videos, but when she started to realise it, she felt very happy.”
Mastanamma is clearly a hit in her village too, with everyone simply in love with both her and her food. Check out her videos for your daily dose of cuteness and learn how to make everything from pot chicken and emu egg fry to village style KFC chicken and banana fry.
