A 9-year-old Indian-origin girl, who floored the Obamas by serving them a Quinoa burger with raita, enhanced with garam masala, cumin and ginger, won a chance to attend the Kids’ State Dinner hosted by the US First Lady Michelle Obama.

Shreya Patel from Chicago was pleasantly surprised when President Barack Obama came to her table during the Kids State Dinner hosted at the White House.

Accompanied by her mother Priti Patel, Shreya was the only Indian-origin kid to have been invited by the First Lady for what has now become an annual event.

The 55 participants at the Kids State Dinner were selected from a national Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. Nearly 1,000 kids had entered the competition this year.

Though the dinner is hosted by the First Lady, Obama has been making a surprise crash into the party every year.
