Recently, she snapped a bowl of curd rice and a South Indian style curry and posted it to her Instagram story. Malaika has also given her followers a glance into how she enjoys eating a lavish South Indian meal, in an authentic manner - on a banana leaf!
Interestingly, South Indian food is extremely nutritious and has many benefits when consumed. An authentic home cooked South Indian meal is full of proteins and fibres and is easy to digest. A dish like Sambhar includes vegetables like drumsticks, onion, tomatoes, beans and dal - all of which are rich in vitamins and minerals. Other South Indian delicacies including rasam, idli, dosa, vada and uttapam, etc., make up for a healthy and nutritious meal. The South Indian cuisine is quite expansive and includes the regional cuisines of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Pondicherry, Lakshadweep and the Andaman and Nicobar islands. These cuisines have a variety of dishes, ranging from vegetarian to non-vegetarian items. All South Indian meals are relished with chutneys that often have coconut as a main ingredient. The fact that South Indian cuisine is versatile and has a dish as per every individual’s liking is the reason why many celebrities are often spotted enjoying a hearty authentic South Indian meal from time to time, including Malaika herself.
She isn’t one to shy away from indulging in a delicious supper. She can often be spotted partying with her girl gang and eating lavish dinners with them. Recently, Malika was seen at Karisma Kapoor’s dinner party, which was also attended by other B-town celebs like Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Manish Malhotra and Karan Johar. Malaika shared a snap of the sumptuous dinner that the celebrities enjoyed. In the menu were dishes like mutton curry, biryani, raita and fried fish.
