anushka-sharma_650x400_71491910331Talented, versatile and gorgeous, actress Anushka Sharma is on a roll. She recently proved her mettle yet again in her home production Phillauri. Her portrayal as the naïve and friendly ghost with an unfinished business in the current epoch, won her acclaims from critics and masses alike. The actress is all set to ring in her 29th birthday today.  The ever glowing actress is a fitness icon of many, and quite rightly so as the much disciplined actress never misses out on her workouts, even when on vacations. But did you know that the actress happens to be a big time foodie as well and has a pretty long list of indulgences.

Remember the gol gappe competition between Shahrukh and Anushka in ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’? Turns out that the actress is a chaat lover in real life too! In one of her interviews to a leading digital publication, she revealed how she loves gorging into Aloo tikki, Dahi Bhallaand Papdi Chaat, near Ghantaghar in Dehradun.

She absolutely dotes on her mother’s home-cooked food. The butter chicken cooked by her mother used to be her favourite dish, until she turned into a vegetarian. The actress still thrives on her mum’s curries, momos, khichdi and khichoni– — a soup with onions and tomatoes as base. Her mother shares a strong penchant for cooking and loves surfing channels, and experiment with many recipes. In one of the celebrity based cookery show hosted by director Farah Khan, where she appeared with her mother, Anushka lovingly tagged her mother as ‘Kitchen Ki Jackie Chan’.

The actress who has recently turned into a vegetarian is eating a lot more vegetables than what she used to earlier. And she is absolutely loving the experience. She has also been  serving her pet dog Dude, some healthy vegetarian dog food. On a regular day Anushka gets her share of protein and other nutrients from plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, milk and yogurt. She believes in eating smaller, healthy meals to keep herself fueled for the long day.
