From desserts to salads, Masaba enjoys food and loves to share her passion for it with her social media followers. In addition to being a food lover, she is also a fitness enthusiast and is, therefore, extremely meticulous about what she has on her plate. On Saturday, the 32-year-old gave her fans a look at the ‘meal of her dreams’. If you think that her favourite meal is an exotic and luxurious dish, you are wrong. Masaba said that her favourite food is the humble Maharashtrian delicacy ‘Zunka Bhakar’.
She shared a photo of the mouth-watering dish on her Instagram Stories along with a note. She wrote, “A protein-rich meal of my dreams: I’ve loved ‘Zunka Bhakar’ forever. A Maharashtrian delicacy that is bursting with flavour.”
Revealing some details about the dish, she further wrote, “The Zunka is besan tossed with haldi (turmeric), onion and garlic, and the bhakar can be done in rice flour/ nachni/ jowar- whatever you like.”
She also elevated the meal with some yummy sides. About the additions, she said, “Don’t miss the ‘thecha'(green chillies & I put olive oil in mine) and I added dried garlic chutney on the side.”
Masaba also recommended adding “ghee and masala chaas on the side if you are going all the way.”
