Kriti Sanon Shares Her Favourite Winter Comfort Food

All too often the narrative of ‘movie star living’ is to eat healthily in order to look a certain way, so it’s always a pleasant reminder that some of your biggest actors and actresses are actually massive foodies too. Kriti Sanon – the Bollywood celeb known for blockbusters like Bareilly Ki Barfi and Mimi – is one of the most well-known foodies in the biz and often takes to social media to share an insight into her favourite meals

Hailing from Delhi, Sanon is all about comfort food, especially in winter and has often spoken about her love for baking as one of her favourite hobbies. In a recent post she shared a picture captioned ‘My Favvvvv!’ and finally we all know what her go-to comfort food is. In the picture was a thick methi paratha slathered with butter, a simple combination that everyone can relate to as a hearty breakfast.

With a herby bitter taste and a number of health benefits, methi is an ingredient that often shows up on winter menus, especially in North India. And of course, a hot paratha along with some warming chai makes for an unbeatable breakfast at any time of the year.

This is only the latest in a string of many winter delights the actress has been enjoying this season. A few days ago she had let us in on some treats she’d enjoyed while on a shoot in Manali for her next film Do Patti. Hot jalebis in the Manali chill were the treat of the day for Sanon who is well-renowned for her sweet tooth. It seems like she just can’t get enough of typical desi fare in the winter!

If you want to try your hand at making some comforting methi parathas at home, here’s a simple recipe to try: 


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup fresh fenugreek leaves (methi), finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Water for kneading
  • Ghee or oil for cooking


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, chopped fenugreek leaves, green chilli, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, and salt.
  • Gradually add water and knead the mixture into a smooth and firm dough. Allow it to rest for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into small lemon-sized balls. Take a ball, dust it with some flour, and roll it out into a round paratha using a rolling pin.
  • Heat a griddle or tawa over medium heat. Place the rolled paratha on the hot griddle and cook for about a minute until bubbles start to appear.
  • Flip the paratha and spread a little ghee or oil on the cooked side. Cook the other side until both sides are golden brown and cooked.
  • Serve the methi parathas hot with yoghurt, pickles, or any chutney of your choice.
