Bollywood heartthrob and actor Ranbir Kapoor has a busy year ahead with the release of two of the most anticipated movies of the year, Shamshera and Brahmastra. As per some sources, Ranbir never follows a strict diet unless his role demands it. In fact, he loves food and enjoys eating a variety of cuisines. Though it's quite evident that food runs in the blood of Kapoor Khandan. In a conversation with Mashable India, Ranbir responded that he enjoys eating simple, home-cooked meals. Below is a list of his favourite foods. 

Bhurji Paratha 

Ranbir loves eating bhurji paratha and who doesn’t? , Well, bhurji is a method of cooking in which the primary vegetable is coarsely chopped, ground, and cooked with a variety of spices. Even though everyone has heard of paneer bhurji and egg bhurji, there are other additional bhurji recipes you can make with palak, baingan, soya, and even tofu! Egg bhurji can be a fantastic lunch option because it contains a growth-essential vitamin. It can be served with puri, roti, or bread. 

Dal Chawal  

According to a recent article in the Hindustan Times, Ranbir claimed to have discovered, through his marriage, the importance of dal chawal rather than the rich and tempting tangdi kebab in his life. Without a doubt, dal chawal has always been a lifesaver, whether you've had a long, stressful day or a sick day. Nothing brings us Indians more joy than a hearty bowl of dal chawal. Most people agree that comfort foods are unhealthy and bad for the body. But in particular, dal chawal is healthy comfort food and a match made in culinary heaven.

A basic bhindi ki sabzi is amongst Ranbir's favourite dish. This inexpensive vegetable, also known as okra, bhindi, or lady's finger, is a summertime favourite. Although it is usually used as a vegetable, it is naturally categorised as a fruit. Bhindi has an outstanding nutritional profile, which many people might not be aware of. It is high in vitamin C and K1 and low in carbohydrates. Additionally, it is a good source of antioxidants and contains mucilage, a thick, gel-like substance that makes it sticky and slimy. 

Chicken Curry 

Oh wow! Ranbir Kapoor loves eating chicken curry. We Indians experience an unparalleled thrill when eating a flavorful, spicy chicken curry. We argue about who will get the last serving during family lunches. We adore hot, spicy chicken curries to the extreme! We are the home of curry, and there are many distinct types of curry but on curry that can never be replaced is chicken curry. 

Despite the fact that these are some of his favourite dishes, he also likes achar and pyaz on his meal platter to complement the flavour of any dish. Additionally, he enjoys adding a sprinkle of ghee to everything he eats. Ghee to any dish is like ‘cherry on the top’. India's culinary traditions are known for their use of ghee, a form of clarified butter. Beyond its alleged spiritual and therapeutic virtues, ghee, a centuries-old alternative medicine practised in India, has recently acquired popularity as a healthier alternative to regular butter.
