Just like her sister Shilpa Shetty, Shamita Shetty is a true blue foodie. Thanks to her social media she keeps her fans updated with her foodie escapades, especially involving regional food. She is currently in Vadodara, so how could she not experience the “Gujju food coma”? In a bid to awaken her taste buds, Shamita visited a snack shop in Gujarat city. Treating us to the glimpses of her gastronomical adventures, Shamita shared a video on her Instagram timeline. The clip begins by showing her drooling over kachoris. Next, the video shows Shamita sitting at a table with a complete Gujarati feast in front of her. In the video, she can be heard saying, “Main seedha airport se aayi hoon, nashton ke liye. Main Vadodara mein hoon. Actually mujhe Gujarati khana bahut pasand hai. [I have come straight from the airport just for these snacks. I am in Vadodara. I love Gujarati food]. I mean look at the spread.” What was she relishing? Undhiyu, khaman dhokla, sev khamani, muthiya (it is Shamita's favourite), paathra, handvo, lilwani kachori, khandvi, and khasta kachori. Phew!
Sharing the clip, Shamita Shetty wrote, “Vadodara, where my waistline goes on vacation! Gujju food coma is in full swing, send help... or more dhoklas!! PS: for all those wondering how I eat gluten and lactose... yes I avoid it cause of colitis but I allow myself a little, in moderation (this is key). Of course once a week …so the body doesn't become completely intolerant to it!!”
This comes a few days after Shamita Shetty gorged on a traditional Bengali platter. The actress, who visited Siliguri in West Bengal, dropped a video of herself enjoying some lip-smacking dishes. In the clip, Shamita expresses, "I really wanted to try the traditional food here. My mouth is watering." Then she starts introducing the dishes on her desi platter. Beginning with the beverages, she presents the traditional buttermilk drink called ghol. In the starters, Shamita was served mochar chop, a snack made from banana, paired with a mustard sauce known as kasundi. Following that, there was jhuri aloo bhaja, a potato-based snack. In the main course, Shamita relished baigan bhaja, and a mutton dish, along with various types of curries. Rice and papad were also visible on her plate. The dessert included mishti doi and gulab jamun.
Along with the clip, Shamita wrote, "Exploring Siliguri one delicious bite at a time - because local authenticity is the truest passport to flavour! Compliments to the chef Hasibur, Thank you Ashis Biswa and Sourav for organising this.”
Before this, Shamita Shetty also enjoyed an Odia platter, when she visited Bhubaneswar. Here is the proof:
Hey Shamita Shetty, we can't wait for your next vacation, so that you bring us more regional flavours.
