Manushi Chhillar has always kept us glued to her achievements and personal life. Now, another facet of her personal life seems to be emerging in front of us. It seems that Manushi is a true foodie at heart. Though she stays loyal to a healthy diet, she also makes time to indulge in a variety of mouth-watering dishes from time to time. She happened to be in Ahmedabad recently. And from there, she shared a snippet of her food adventure that left us drooling. Manushi gorged on a sumptuous Gujarati thali and posted a photo of the same on Instagram.
Manushi Chhillar's platter featured chapati (roti), puri, methi paratha, and a range of delectable curries. There were a couple of dry vegetable curries as well.
On the side, we could spot a bowl of sweet and sour Gujarati dal, along with another bowl of creamy, rich yogurt. Don't miss the drool-worthy shrikhand on her thali.
For the salad, there was an assortment of boiled chickpeas and what looked like finely chopped raw mangoes.
A few food items were also kept arranged around her platter. Since this is the season of mangoes, the thali included quite a few dishes made with the fruit. There was a sweet halwa, aam ras, and aam panna.
We also spotted a small plate of dahi vada topped with green chutney and tamarind chutney. A glass of what looked like chaas also made the cut. A jar of pickle and some roasted papad were also kept around her plate.
