Dal is a staple in Indian kitchens. Whenever we have to eat something light and healthy, we turn towards a bowl of dal. Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is no different. Shilpa's culinary tales on Instagram always have our attention. Today, she gave us a sneak peek into her Saturday lunch. No marks for guessing the dish.

The photo captured two bowls of dals, one presumably moong ki dal, garnished with chopped coriander leaves. “Thanks for the yummy lunch. I had to choose between two dals,” Shilpa captioned the post. And guess who sent over the food! It was none other than politician and fashion designer Shaina NC.
