Do you cook at home? What do you make? Share a recipe with us
Yes I do cook. I usually make chicken Salad with Hummus or Brown Rice Khichdi
Recipe is just the same as normal Khichdi but I use olive oil and mix 3 different dals
For Chicken Salad I marinate the chicken in some curd, put some spice salt and coriander to it. Keep it over night and cook it on slow heat, add veggies of your choice, close the lid and once it’s properly cooked serve with some hummus on side 🏻♀️
Veg or Non Veg?
Both, but mostly veg
Baked or fried?
Of course fried but I am dieting as of now, so baked
Soup or salad?
Depends on my mood. Both are equally boring
One vegetable that you hate the most?
Celebrity you would love to cook for?
Not sure if I would like to cook for someone, but I don’t mind if someone cooks something good while I am on a date with Bradley Cooper (smiles)
I don’t snack in the midnight, I just sleep
