More popular than Master Chef, Mastanamma is the new YouTube hit. Dressed in a cotton sari and an open rice field as her kitchen background, Mastanamma does not fit into the mold of your average celebrity chef. But thanks to Youtube, the grey haired great grandmother from Andhra Pradesh has become an unlikely Youtube sensation because of her traditional, old timer cooking techniques.
Mastanamma is the star of a nine-month-old YouTube cooking channel called Country Foods, with over 2,80,000 subscribers from within and outside India. Though she has no birth certificate to prove her age, Mastanamma says she is 106, which makes her possibly the oldest YouTube star in the world.
