Winter season brings with it a host of vegetables presenting us with new options to serve at the dinner table. Be it the crisp capsicum that goes in everything from your fried rice to Maggi or cauliflower that offers its flavours to some scrumptious Indian dishes, vegetables form a significant part of our diet. Besides being delicious, these vegetables are indeed nutritious, especially when fresh. Now, when it comes to nutrition, it seems actress Parineeti Chopra takes it quite seriously. How do we know? Well, her latest Instagram Stories are the proof. The actress shared a few snaps of some organic and homegrown food sourced straight from the farm. In the Stories, we can see a basket full of fresh spinach, beetroot, radish, mustard, and lettuce. “Fresh produce from the homeland! Ambala ki kheti,” Parineeti Chopra wrote while thanking her father Pawan Chopra and mother Reena.
