To engage with his fans, the superstar frequently conducts #AskSRK sessions on Twitter. During one session, the actor admitted that his favourite meals are daal, rice, and onions, and he can survive on them for the rest of his life.

A palate developed by his parents

His parent, Mir Taj Mohammed Khan and Fatima, were restaurateurs in New Delhi. And were great cooks. Even when SRK was 26, his mother used to mix the food and feed him. And that's a habit he couldn't outgrow. And thus, he feels uncomfortable dining out, also beside getting perplexed feels the taste of the food cooked by his parents is unmatched.
