Let's agree that Gujarati food is vibrant, colourful and super enticing. The cuisine includes everything right from an array of sweet and tangy snacks to heavy, flavourful and savoury preparations that can make you drool instantly. The burst of flavours can be felt in every bite of most dishes. Comedian Bharti Singh recently devoured a number of Gujarati dishes. Her breakfast comprised mouth-watering fafda teamed with a bowlful of kadhi and papaya sambharo (a kind of chutney made with raw unripe papaya). We could also spot spongy dhoklas on her platter. Don't skip the two green chillies served for that spicy twist. Excited about the food, Bharti shared a video of her plate on Instagram Stories. She also added a popular Gujarati song along with the lines of “Sanedo sanedo” to the clip to set the mood right.
