Richa, who has carved a niche for herself in the Indian film industry with her acting skill and choice of films, is making quite a buzz on social media too these days.

However, Richa is now back to work and like always have been sharing snippets from her daily life, on the set and off it. This time, it is her food shenanigans that have us hooked. 

The Masaan actor, in one of her latest stories, shared a glimpse of her Korean meal that features a classic. Can you guess what it was? A bowlful of hearty Bibimbap (looks like veg Bibimbap). "Korean Khana", she captioned the picture. Take a look. 

Looks delicious, doesn’t it? Bibimbap is a Korean one-pot rice meal in which 'Bibim' means ‘mixing' and 'bap' refers to ‘cooked rice’. This means it is a dish prepared by mixing rice, vegetable, meat, and eggs, etc. A complete one-pot meal, Bibimbap has existed in Korea for centuries. It is said to have come from early rural Koreans, who took leftover vegetables, sometimes meat, with rice and mixed them in a bowl. This was cheap and did not require all of the time and space of a traditional meal, and hence was a popular dish. 

If you too have started to crave the classic Korean one-pot dish, here’s a simple recipe of Bibimbap for you. You can easily make it at home for a quick, easy and comforting dish on a busy weeknight or a lazy weekend grub.
