She took to Instagram on Saturday and posted a throwback picture of herself. In the picture, she can be seen wearing a blue top and opted for a red bindi on her forehead. Sharing the post, she wrote in caption, “Clothes are not all that maketh the woman!

You may associate me with ‘western glam’ but I’m as desi as they come. And nothing speaks to this as much as my diet. It doesn’t matter where I am travelling in the world, within two days I begin to crave home food and go in search of an Indian restaurant.

Dal chawal is my staple, which as khichdi is my comfort meal. Papads and achaar are perfect accompaniments to any lunch. Dosas from Dakshinayan are my favourite indulgence. I can never say no to kaju katli. I couldn’t be happier that it’s mango season. And you can be sure that I always have a couple of jars of namkeen stashed in my bedroom.

India is so magnificently diverse, I’m still discovering new dishes. Please share your favourite, local recommendations with me.

P.s: I’m vegetarian.”
