New Delhi: International tennis legend Roger Federer got a taste of India when he feasted on a giant-sized naan, served with the usual non-vegetarian and vegetarian accompaniments, and then its traditional desserts at a signature restaurant during his maiden trip to the country.

"Got naan," Federer tweeted on Monday morning along with a photograph in which he's all smiles holding a crisp naan, a flat bread made of white flour and baked in a tandoor.

According to a hotel source present, Federer relished the Sikandri naan, Murgh Malai Kabab, Seekh Kabab, Tandoori Gobhi, Tandoori Aloo, Dal Bukhara, and Naan Bukhar at the Bukhara, the restaurant at ITC Maurya, that has hosted any number of world leaders and had even a dish named after former president Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton.

For dessert, he ordered Kulfi, Phirni, Gulab Jamun at Bukhara, which specialises in recreating the charm of the traditional clay oven cooking.

Federer, who had earlier mentioned his desire to have a good Indian meal, dined at the popular restaurant with his father and associates, the source told IANS.

The Swiss star, a 17-time Grand Slam champion, is here for the inaugural International Premier Tennis League (IPTL). He was upbeat about playing here.

"New Delhi you have no idea how excited i am to come play in #India," he had shared in an earlier tweet.

He was also accorded a warm welcome earlier on his arrival at ITC Maurya, where World No.1 Novak Djokovic is also staying.
