"Yum" is what American singer and actress Mandy Moore exclaimed upon digging into 'litti chokha', a delicacy of Bihar, during her ongoing India visit.

Moore, known for movies like "A Walk To Remember" and "Tangled", landed in the capital on September 5. Since then, she has been living up some experiences to cherish.

In Delhi, she did the "tourist" thing by getting photographed against the Rashtrapati Bhavan, and tweeted:

The actress is here for a purpose -- to support NGO Population Services International (PSI), India's Gender Based Violence (GBV) Programme Project Wajood.

Her visit to Patna entailed an assessment of innovative models to provide toilets which can save lives, reduce violence against girls and women and help local entrepreneurs.

Moore's next stop was Lucknow, where she learnt about the progress of family planning products and services for women in lower socio-economic segment of society. She was there on Tuesday.

The actress will be back in Delhi to attend an event on Friday.
