Scott Morrison has revealed he’s as much of a Bollywood music fan as he is of Indian cuisine.
The Prime Minister cooked up a chicken, eggplant and saag curry on his final night in quarantine at The Lodge in Canberra following his recent US trip to visit President Joe Biden.
He shared photos of himself whipping up the tasty feast on his outdoor barbeque on Saturday night, along with the Spotify playlist he tunes into whenever he cooks up an Indian feast.
The ‘Desi Hits’ playlist includes a diverse repertoire of Bollywood hits, ranging from rappers Yohani and Badshah to pop from Arijit Singh.
Aussies were quick to praise Mr Morrison for his unique music taste.
‘Listening to “Desi Hits” while cooking up a sick curry for Jen and the kids. Be rude not to,’ wrote one.
‘Only listen to the same music as the cuisine you cook,’ joked another.
‘Bet you make the meanest curry, I’d love to try it some day,’ wrote a third.

‘Desi Hits’ playlist while cooking Indian
The Prime Minister has previously shared photos of his homemade samosas and ‘Lamb Rhapsody from Rajasthan’, a rare Indian delicacy.
It’s also not the first time Mr Morrison has opened up about his music tastes.
Shortly after becoming Prime Minister in 2018 and wanting to show he was ‘a man of the people’, Mr Morrison shared the playlist he listens to on the three hour drive between Sydney and Canberra.
‘If you’re after my Oz playlist, this is the one that has joined me on Syd-Canberra-Syd drives for years, (with a few Kiwis thrown in,’ he tweeted at the time.
Called ‘how good is Oz Rock’, the playlist was full of 1980s hits from INXS and Midnight Oil, Mental as Anything, Icehouse and Noiseworks.
A Crikey News journalist recently revealed more of Mr Morrison’s favourite music after discovering the prime minister had accidentally left his Spotify profile public.
The reporter revealed Mr Morrison plugged into Christian rock with several playlists dedicated to religious songs and Top 40 Christian Hits.
The devout Pentecostal also enjoys metal as much as he does Dutch electronic DJ Tiesto and Taylor Swift.
Other recently played artists were pop groups Spandau Ballet and Tears For Fears, Swiss electronic duo Yello, and English post-punk band The The.
Prince, Madonna, Grace Jones and Pet Shop Boys were also featured in his recently played artist list.

The photo of Mr Morrison cooking up the Indian feast outdoor while in quarantine sparked controversy while regular Australians are forced to isolate in cramped hotel rooms.
Some questioned why ordinary citizens had to complete their quarantine stints confined to a room often without a balcony or windows that open.
‘Geez it must be nice,’ one wrote.
‘Read the room – pretty distasteful putting this up while most people have to quarantine without even being able to open a window never mind cook a meal,’ wrote another.
‘Gee must being doing it tough in quarantine,’ a third sarcastically wrote.
‘Lucky you, I had to do mine in a room with no fresh air and my view out the window was a brick wall,’ one Aussie wrote.

Others took the opportunity to compliment Mr Morrison on his cooking prowess.
‘Good job, looks amazing. Keep up the good work!’ one said.
‘Take care! Sir, you need a thermomix for Christmas!’ another suggested.
Mr Morrison was isolating following his trip to the US where he held talks with American President Joe Biden.
All Australians returning from overseas are required to complete 14 days of isolation in designated hotel facilities.
Many have complained about the poor quality of food and lack of fresh air they had in their rooms which they are confined to for the total duration of their stay.
