Anushka isn’t so fond of a cooking herself, and rarely enters the kitchen. But the self-confessed foodie can go to the farthest lengths to appease her foodie cravings. She loves indulging in Chinese food, especially from the road side stalls in Juhu, which she frequents often after wrapping her late night shoots. At the Yash Raj canteen, Anushka is an absolute fan of their chilly-cheese toast. When she can’t go there herself, she sends her staff to get a few packed for her.
Apart from Chinese, the actress is very fond of Japanese cuisine. As an army kid, she was brought up in an environment where they had to eat everything from karela, baingan and tori, without fuss. Anushka mostly eats only Indian food at home. The foodie doesn’t like oil-laden preparations. However, Anushka lovesmalai and as a child loved the combination of malai and sugar. The actor is not so big on burgers and pizzas either, and didn’t enjoy them as much, even when she was a kid. She starts her day with some coconut water or lemon juice, and for breakfast has either upma or poha, French toast or an egg-white omelette. If she is in Mumbai, she prefers to carry food from home: dal, particularly whole grain dal, rice and veggies. Anushka also loves her cup of chamomile tea, which also helps her detox.
Amongst desserts, Tiramisu, crème brulee and yellow custard are her absolute favourites.
