My Favourite Dish : My mom used to make excellent moong ki dal, khichdi and bhindi ki sabzi. I miss it.
I Like To Eat At : My favourite place is Just Around The Corner for salads and Ming Yang, the Chinese restaurant at Taj Lands End, Mumbai, for their great food, good service and great ambience.
Best Meal I’ve Ever Had : I work day and night. But when I reach home, my wife serves me with the best meals. Recently, I reached home after a hectic shoot and my wife had a whole Greek meal ready for me, Greek, as she wants me to be fit and healthy. Also, the other day, she let go of fitness constraints and made amazing rajma and kali dal. Her food is savoury to the last bite.
My Favoured Cuisine: I love Indian food cooked by my wife. The Chinese at Ying Mang is another of my favourites. I love their Singapore Style Crab and the Lobster in Butter Garlic Sauce.
Non-food Passions : Spending time with my wife and kids.
My favourite recipe : Steamed Bhindi sabzi.
