What is your favourite food memory from childhood?  
It sounds cliché but till to this day, we wait for a Sunday to make Dal Chawal for lunch. It has a very special place in my heart. We mostly used to have roti sabzi during the week and then on Sundays, my adorable Maa used to make dal, Chawal, fryums, papad, pickle, etc. 

What’s your favourite comfort food?
Khichdi - Kadhi. It literally defines comfort and warmth in a bowl. 

3 reasons why you consider yourself a Foodie? 
I have a fair bit of knowledge about food unlike other food bloggers who love their "PINK SAUCE PASTA". I have a post graduate degree in hospitality which proves that. And lastly, I always wanted to do something in the food field and blogging came at the right time. 

What’s the strangest dish you’ve ever tried?
Oysters. I would never be making that mistake again. 

If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Mom's roti sabzi. 

What kind of oil do you use most of all?
Rice bran oil. 

Which is the most over-rated food cuisine?
German food. It's mostly bland.

Any quirky food dishes combinations you have invented or love feasting on?
Day old chapatti with chai. Fries with strawberry milkshake. Both extremely unhealthy but sooo good. And also I have tried Maggi with some Yoghurt. It's a game changer. 

Your take on:
Keto diets – its good, if followed stringently. 
Intermittent fasting – Extremely effective. 
Fusion food cuisine – going to fade very soon. 

Which superfoods have impressed you the most?
All the lentils / pulses we have been eating since childhood are superfoods and have always been my favourites. People around the world are just discovering them now. 

What are your favourites?
Indian street food – Ragda Patrice 
Hidden gem restaurant of your city (and why) – Sujata Upahar Gruha. It serves simple and delicious Maharashtrian food. 
Over-rated Indian restaurant in your city (and why) – Verbena. The food was very average. And I believe it has shut down because of that. 
The restaurant you keep going back to - Flax. Their salads and super meal bowls are fantastic and worth the buck. 

How do you detox your body after an overdose of eating out? 
Being a foodie, one surely needs to detox regularly. I try to have more liquids and cut down on carbs like wheat rotis. Instead I have jowar or bajra rotis and more sabzi. Also, buttermilk helps you detox in the best way possible. It's great for your gut health. 

Any health foods you swear by?
Multi grain flour breads and rotis. They're here to stay. Also, all kinds of Indian vegetables cooked in minimal oil are extremely healthy.
