A miniature food expert has amassed millions of views on social media by creating impressive meals using tiny cookware and cutlery.

Ranjitji Thakor, a 28-year-old YouTuber and Influencer from Gujarat, India, is behind the Mini Kitchen India accounts.

Ranjitji was inspired to start creating miniature foods by his brother, 26-year-old Sanjay Thakor, also from Gujarat, India.

In 2017, Sanjay came across a YouTube video of a miniature food cooking channel and asked his brother if he’d be interested in creating something similar.

The videos show Ranjit preparing various multi-cultural dishes from scratch such as vegetable spring rolls, Oreo cakes and milkshakes, Chinese fried rice, a South Indian-themed platter and even a full fried fish.

Ranjitji uses miniature equipment and utensils he finds from various online retailers and second-hand selling sites on a 1:12 scale.

The mini versions of foods are handmade by Ranjitji and Sanjay from food given to them by their father who is a farmer.

All of the Mini Kitchen India videos are filmed at his at-home studio in Gujarat and earn him over $2,000 a month.

Ranjitji described how he started his social media business back in 2019 and how he overcame the huge challenges he faced.

He said: “It was not an easy road.

“I could not afford to buy miniature cookware or a miniature stove when Sanjay suggested it to me.

“But it did not discourage me - I worked hard and saved money to collect all the miniature kitchen parts I needed.

"The first few months of YouTube were so hard but after about five or six months I had become the perfect mini kitchen chef.

“After YouTube, I moved to TikTok in February 2020 and gained one million followers just in three months!”

Ranjitji is thrilled with the positive reaction he has received from his millions of worldwide viewers.

He said: “It’s simply been amazing.

“I have been able to have incredible sponsorships from some great brands.

“Now, I make a living doing what I love and sharing it on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.”
