To say that Chef Sanjeev Kapoor is one of the greatest culinary icons India has ever produced would be no understatement at all. Gracing our televisions—and now our phones—for decades, Chef Sanjeev Kapoor has had a very impactful journey indeed. He has shaped how India cooks at home and empowered homemakers with incredible food knowledge. And a recent post proves that this impact has extended to Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s own home too. 

In a recent short and sweet video post on Instagram, Chef Sanjeev Kapoor can be seen relishing a special paella dish prepared by his daughters, Rachita and Kriti Kapoor. In the video clip, Chef Sanjeev Kapoor is seen taking one spoonful of paella offered by his daughters. A single taste of the dish prompts Chef Sanjeev Kapoor to break out in a fun dance with his daughters, proving that the paella was well made indeed. 

“Father’s Day dinner got us obsessed like!” Chef Sanjeev Kapoor wrote in the post. “@rachitakapoor08 and @kritikapoor29 made Paella. We had a hearty meal and ended it with some dancing! Simply a perfect Father’s Day.” Watching the father-daughter trio dance around in shorts and tees with a plate of paella in hand can inspire any home cook to cook up the dish as well. 

For those who don’t know, paella is a Spanish dish that is made with a variety of fish and seafood, like prawns, mussels, etc and short-grain risotto rice. The one-pot dish is flavoured with spices like saffron and bay leaf. Known as one of the most prominent Spanish cuisine dishes, paella also appeals to the Indian palate.
