The festival of Gudi Padwa was celebrated on Wednesday, March 22. Also known as 'Ugadi' in Karnataka, it marks the new year for Marathis and Kannadigas and coincides with the first day of Chaitra Navratri. On this day, it is customary to eat some Maharashtrian delicacies like shrikhand, bhaji and poori. And Anushka Sharma's Gudi Padwa celebrations were no different! The actress enjoyed a wholesome and yummy meal on the occasion of the Maharashtrian New Year. Guess who the chef was? None other than Anushka Sharma's mother, Ashima Sharma. Take a look:
In the click, we could see some traditional Maharashtrian treats laid out on a banana leaf, as is typical to Gudi Padwa. There was a bowl of steamed rice along with spicy batata bhaji or aloo bhaji. There was also a bowl of kala channa rasedaar as well as the classic Maharashtrian flatbread - Puran Poli. The meal was completed with two slices of lemon, kala namak and a slice of lemon pickle.
