What is your favourite food memory from childhood?

My favourite food memories are truly of ethnic Indian range. I love Gujiya (the dessert), rich creamy Rabdi and Katahal ki sabzi (jackfruit).

What’s your favourite comfort food?

Khichdi tops my list of comfort food. It’s an all-time favourite, I find it really soothing and light on the body.

2 reasons why you consider yourself a Foodie?

I say ‘Yes’ to Food even when I am full and my hunger pangs are satiated.
Preparing good food and feasting on good food both give me immense satisfaction.

What’s the strangest dish you’ve ever tried?

Parle G cheese cake was something I tried at a restaurant. Such a minor variation to the traditional cheese cake and so much of hype created about it.

 If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I love Dal chawal. The bonus points here are that so many varieties of daals you can play around with to make some creative creations.

 What kind of oil do you use most of all?

Groundnut and Sesame oils are used more often in my kitchen. At times, we use Olive oil for salads and international dishes/

Which is the most over-rated food cuisine?

Sushi is something which has many people going gaga about them. But somehow personally sushi lacks the sizzle for me.

Any quirky food dishes combinations you have invented or love feasting on?

Monaco Biscuit quick bites and Cheesy Watermelon bites. So many variations you can play around with. You can also plate them creatively and these are quick party snack foods which people love to gobble with delight.

Your take on:

Keto diets – The New Fad that would fizzle out soon. Research has proved that the Keto diet could cause low blood pressure, constipation, nutrient deficiencies and even an increased risk of heart disease. Strict diets like Keto must be done per medical guidance. 

Intermittent fasting – Yes, I find it worthy coz we Indians love to fast on religious grounds too. Here too, this diet needs to be followed correctly as per your body type under the guidance of your Doctor/Diet Consultant. Fasting has and will always give your digestive system much needed rest. 

Fusion food cuisine – I have liked some fusion food creations, the ones that come to my mind instantly are cheese and Jalapeno Stuffed Kachori and Rasmalai cake from Baking Blunders.

Which superfoods have impressed you the most?

Sweet potatoes. They are a highly nutritious food loaded with carotenoids, which have strong antioxidant properties. They may also be beneficial for blood sugar control.

What are your favourites? 

Indian street food –  Chaat and Dahi puri
Indian dessert – Rabdi
Hidden gem restaurant of your city (and why) – Meishi (Japanese cuisine)  at The Park Hotel, Juhu. Great Food, Vegetarian friendly and unique dishes.
Over-rated Indian restaurant in your city (and why) – Lucky Biryani. The food lacks taste and has not lived upto the name it once had especially for Biryanis. 
The restaurant you keep going back to -
Greens Restaurant at Andheri 

How do you detox your body after an overdose of eating out?
Next day I consciously have a lot of veggies, fruits, juices, and customised herbal detox teas from my diet consultant. 

Any health foods you swear by?

Dalia, Dry fruits and Makhan
