Unfortunately William couldn't persuade wife Kate to try his tasty Indian treat made by the DosaMatic machine.

The royal couple were given a demonstration of the device by its inventor Eshwar Vikas, 24, during a visit to The Social in Mumbai, a cafe and business centre used as a meeting place by young innovators.

William also sat behind the wheel of a racing car simulator and was left grinning by the experience, and both he and Kate put on blindfolds to use a Braille typing machine spelling out the name of their son George.

Mr Vikas, chief executive of Mukunda Foods, which he founded three years ago, said: “The Duke told me he and the Duchess love dosas and he said it was a wonderful machine.

“He said they would love to have one in their palace and the Duchess said that because you can also use it to make pancakes the whole of London will want one.” 

The Duke also made a short speech to launch an awards programme called the Tech Rocketship Awards.

He told invited guests: “Catherine and I are very impressed by the energy and ideas we have just seen. Being here today, it is clear that India is leading the way in so many areas of innovation and technology.

“Your ability to innovate is not just good news for India but it’s great news for the world. With one sixth of the world’s population, young innovators like you must play a major role.”

He then pressed a button which set off a series of exploding pinatas filled with metallic foil confetti and joked “All this innovation and we get this.” The Press Association reports.

William and Kate then headed to lay a wreath to honour soldiers from Indian regiments who served in World War I in New Dehli.
