'Badass' Indian granny chef made famous on YouTube leaves behind inspired fans
One of the world's oldest YouTubers, 107-year-old Mastanamma from southern India, has died.

She shot to fame on the internet for her cooking, which consisted of local and unusual dishes made from scratch. Her YouTube channel, Country Foods, has more than a million subscribers with hundreds of cooking videos, including one on her iconic watermelon chicken.

Born in the state of Andhra Pradesh, Mastanamma told BBC Monitoring she believed she was 106 years old in 2017 - although she had no birth certificate to prove it.

Despite her passing, she remains an inspiration to the London-based chef Shrimoyee Chakraborty.
