With over a million views on Twitter alone in two days, the video, which also sees the two discussing their shared South Indian roots and their families' immigration stories, is expected to boost Harris’ nomination hopes.

Kaling, born Vera Mindy Chokalingam, has been a longtime supporter of Harris, who is of mixed Indian and American heritage with her mother hailing from Chennai.

The nine-minute video is titled ‘Mindy and Kamala make masala dosa’ and has received widespread acclaim from the Indian-American community, including some of its eminent members.

"Dear 12-Year-Old Me, One day, one of the funniest people on TV will cook a meal with a progressive US Senator who happens to be running for President and they'll both be strong Indian American women. Your Future Self," said Kal Penn, former Obama Administration official and actor.

"In which two South Indian American women - one @mindykaling a TV celebrity, the other @KamalaHarris a candidate for President - make dosa & eat with their hands & the whole world loves it & I feel all the #DesiPride," tweeted Gautam Raghavan, chief of staff to Indian-American Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal.
