On New Year's eve, the Gandhis posted a special video on YouTube featuring the mother-son duo of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi.

The video captured them making orange marmalade on a winter morning using Priyanka Gandhi's recipe.

The Gandhis were seen plucking oranges from their garden and then cleaning and cutting them for the marmalade.

Sonia Gandhi spoke about how it took her time to adjust to the Indian taste after she came to the country and added that now after she comes back from a foreign trip the first thing she likes to have is 'daal and chawal'.

In the video titled 'Mum, Memories and Marmalade', Sonia and Rahul are seen having a light-hearted banter about food.

While preparing the marmalade, Rahul Gandhi says, "If the BJP people want to get the jam, they can get it too. What do you say, mummy?" "They will throw it at us," Sonia Gandhi quips, evoking laughter from Rahul, who adds, "That's good, then we can pick it up again." As he goes about preparing the marmalade from scratch by plucking oranges to peeling and slicing them, Rahul says, "This is my sister's recipe, she found it and improved it. I am only implementing it." In the over five-minute video, Sonia Gandhi also shares what annoys her about Rahul. "He is stubborn, I am as well. Both of us are stubborn. So you can understand," she says.

On what she likes about him, Sonia Gandhi says, "He is very affectionate, very caring. Especially when I am not well, both Rahul and Priyanka take care of me." On who is the best cook in the house, Rahul says it was Sonia Gandhi's mother.

"Then she learnt a whole bunch of things from dadi's Kashmiri relatives," he adds.

Talking about food preferences, Sonia Gandhi says, "When an Indian person goes abroad, I am not talking of today because there are Indian restaurants everywhere...You cannot get adjusted to the foods in the UK and elsewhere." "Similarly, when I came here it took me time to get adjusted to the Indian flavours especially the chilies," she says Sonia Gandhi says she did not like 'hara dhaniya', to which Rahul quips but now she likes it a lot.

She also did not like pickles but now she likes pickles a lot, Rahul says.

"It took me a little time but now I really love it. Whenever I go abroad, the first thing that I have to have when I come back is 'arhar ki daal aur chawal'," Sonia Gandhi says.

In the video, Rahul Gandhi also talks about how Mahatma Gandhi had a particular vision about food and had a set of nutritional ideas.

"I also have nutritional ideas slightly different from Gandhi ji's," he says.

The video ends with the marmalade ready in jars and tagged "with love from Sonia and Rahul" ready for being sent to friends and family.
