Mindy Kaling is taking us to the Chicago food scene with her latest Instagram post. And we are all in for those yummy-looking Spaghetti. Mindy wore the chef's hat after getting some inspiration from the American TV show, The Bear. The actress, who is standing behind a cooking platform, has narrated how in one of the episodes the lead of the show cooks a platter of spaghetti in remembrance of his younger brother. Mindy added that the spaghetti in the show looked delicious that she decided to prepare it at home. Going by Mindy's post, the ingredients you need to prepare The Bear-inspired spaghetti include oil, garlic, chilli flakes, fresh basils, white onion, butter, tomato puree, greens, and of course a packet of spaghetti noodles. The actress even tasted the final result - a bowl of yumilicious spaghetti - and she appeared to be loving it. “Immersing myself in the Chicago food scene, courtesy of The Bear. Thank you, Chef,” Mindy wrote in the caption.
