Anushka Sharma is one celebrity with whom every foodie can relate to. While her fit physique might make it difficult to guess, but the actor-producer is a true-blue foodie at heart. And it can often be seen on her Instagram profile. The actor is constantly on the move to find good food weather at home or travelling. Not just for herself, but also for husband-cricketer Virat Kohli too! Remember when she revealed how she finally found Delhi-style chole bhature in Mumbai for Kohli? Read more about it here. Be it her south Indian feasts at home or foodie adventures across the globe, Anushka’s gastronomic shenanigans are a treat for foodies.  

Now in her latest update, she was seen noshing upon a street food that is sure to make you slurp. Taking to her Instagram Stories, just like each time, Anushka shared a picture from her Friday morning table out in the sun, featuring Aloo Bajji/pakodas. A classic Indian snack, pakodas or bajjis in south are deep-fried fritters that makes for a perfect pairing with a piping hot cup of chai.  

On Anushka’s plate we saw a mix of fried fritters including those of aloo and what looked like methi and pyaz. Winter season is the best time to indulge in some methi pakodas while soaking up the sun – and this is exactly what Anushka seems to be doing in the picture. Take a look at what she shared: 

Doesn’t it look absolutely drool-worthy? Pakodas are quite a conversation-starter and when you have so many options to try from- it is hard to choose one. And in such cases, it is best to have it all – just like what Anushka did. A little bit of pyaz, some methi pakodas and the classic aloo ones. Haven’t Anushka made you crave some too?
