At 106, Mastanamma is quite possibly the oldest YouTuber in the world. But with more than 340,000 subscribers, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Mastanamma is from Andhra Pradesh on the southeastern coast of India. She has a YouTube channel, managed by her grandson, in which she cooks amazing, traditional dishes from scratch.
Although she has no birth certificate, her family maintain she is 106.
She also uses traditional equipment and cooks using metal pans over an outdoor stove, to create dishes including duck curry, mango chicken curry and spiced emu egg.
Mastanamma also creates western dishes, such as fried chicken and chips – with a twist.
In one video, Mastanamma says she was married at 11, never went to school and outlived her husband and four of her five children.
"I never been school," she says in the video. "I'm not studied but bring money [and] I can count well," she jokes.
Speaking to Barcroft, her grandson K. Laxman said Mastanamma was initially confused by YouTube, but now loves it.
"On a hungry night, my friends and I prepared some food for ourselves, and we thought about starting a YouTube channel, so that people could watch and learn from these cooking tutorials. Our first video went viral surprisingly," he said.
"That was when I decided to run this channel, to get people to know and understand the traditional way of cooking with fresh ingredients, with the help of my grandmother.
"She didn't understand what was happening when we were filming the videos, but when she started to realise it, she felt very happy."
