‘Desi girl’ Priyanka Chopra Jonas is a global icon today. She is an actor, entrepreneur, and a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. Married to American singer-songwriter Nick Jonas, PeeCee spends most of her time in Los Angeles now. Currently, The Matrix Resurrections star is visiting her Mumbai home, as she comes back to India after three long years. Ever since Priyanaka landed here, her fans and followers have been hooked to her social media feed, as she is sharing snippets of everything she has in store for her stay in India.  

On November 2, Priyanka stepped out in the city for some work commitments, and pictures and videos of it immediately went viral. But the foodie in Priyanka had our priorities clear before stepping out. If you follow her on social media, you would know how she loves to devour good food whenever she can. No wonder she opened an Indian restaurant, called Sona, in New York City too. And remember how excited she was when she received namkeens and other savouries from Boney and Khushi Kapoor?

ow that she’s in India, she is leaving no stone unturned to enjoy all that she can. On her first night here, she was managing her jetlag with a pack of Cheetos. Relatable much? In one of her new Instagram stories, Priyanka shared a picture of her enjoying the staple Gujarati snack, dabeli. For the unversed, dabeli is a popular Gujarati street food, which originated in the Kutch region. It is made by stuffing onions, potatoes, peanuts, imli, and garlic chutney inside a bun. It is a delicate blend of softness and crunch that can melt your heart in the very first bite.

Priyanka shared a picture where she has a half-eaten dabeli in her hand, and eyes closed – seemingly lost in the magic of this delicious snack. Take a look at her post:

“Thank you Mumma Spno for the foodcoma”, PeeCee wrote along with hashtags like #foodcoma #dabeli #streetfood, while thanking and tagging Toral Soni, who got her the snack. Adorable, isn’t it? Now that Priyanka is in town, we can’t wait to see what all desi treats she gorges on in the coming days. If she has made you crave some dabeli too, we’ve got the perfect recipe for you to try right here.
