South Indian meals are comforting. Don't you agree? The dishes are packed with a variety of flavours and are usually light on the stomach. Generally, the cuisine includes various preparations of rice, lentils, vegetables, and traditional spices, combined with tamarind and sometimes, even coconut for that much-needed crunch and boost of flavours. Even celebrities like Anushka Sharma have a soft corner for South Indian food. Do you also share the same liking? Well, we don't know about you but Malaika Arora definitely is yet another big fan of South Indian food. Her various posts on social media stand as testimony to this statement.

To enhance the taste of the meal, Malaika also opted for a mouth-watering blob of pickle from the jar kept close to her plate. The actress expressed, “Meals that nourish the soul.” Here is the photo she posted:
