Is there any particular dish you cling on?
I'm not much of a foodie, but I do like seafood, especially crabs and clams.
Which is your favorite sweet dish?
I don't have a sweet tooth at all! But if I have to name one I would say gajar ka halwa.
Your favorite ghar ka khana?
Has to be mutton bhuna.
Do you cook?
Nope. I don't cook.
Has any guy ever cooked for you?
Yes…once a friend of mine cooked chicken curry for me. And it went pretty well.
Is there any food that you would not eat as a child, but eat now?
Yeah! I used to hate karela when I was small, but now I just love it. Don't get me wrong; I don't drink karela juice as in a health conscious manner, but I love the bhaaji.
What is the most expensive restaurant you have been to?
It was in Dubai, Burj Al Arab.
Do you have food fights?
Yes. A lot, actually!! I hate it when someone tries to eat from my plate and my sister Gauhar knowingly fiddles with my food. So then I end up fighting with her.
Which is your favorite drink?
My favorite drink is the classic orange juice. Give it to me anytime of the day and I'll down it.
So does that mean you start your day with orange juice?
No I don't drink it first thing in the morning. I drink a glass of hot water as soon as I wake up followed by green tea.
What is the strangest dish you have ever tried?
Sushi. I tried it in a Japanese restaurant in Pune and it was horrible! I regretted it a lot later.
Any embarrassing situation you have faced while eating your food?
No … no embarrassing situations yet…
What do you do for midnight food cravings?
I just toss up my special bhel with lots of kurmura and I make sure it is spicy.
Your idea of a proper diet?
Avoid oily food especially those which are from the deep frying pan(laughs). And keep crabs minimal.
