While so many of us have pledged to eat clean and workout religiously after lockdown ends, how many could actually make that happen? No regrets, since good food trumps dieting goals any day. And Bollywood actor Alaya Furniturewalla, who made a successful Bollywood debut in Jawaani Jaaneman, knows exactly what we are talking about. In a delightfully hilarious Instagram Reel that has left all of us in splits, Alaya is caught in a candid behind-the-scenes video of a shoot facing the same predicament that all of us struggle with. Should we eat those gorgeously juicy jalebis, or should we stick to our diet?
Well, Alaya, of course, rejects the tray of jalebis and vada pav like any diet-conscious star would, asking the crew to not even show her what’s on the menu, only to be caught red-handed gorging on them when no one’s looking, requesting cheekily, “don’t judge”. Her caption puts our feelings into words: “What can I say? It’s hard dieting around vada pav and jalebis ” Well, you know what they say, the calories don’t count if no one sees you.
Alaya Furniturewalla’s food posts on Instagram have always been high on the kitsch quotient. In one of her previous videos, she took up the challenging task of trying out the notoriously famous 2x ramen noodles, that too with double the spice seasoning. She even bites into a piece of green chilli on the side. Well, none of that could frazzle her amazing spice tolerance. And she managed to leave us hungry for more of her food content.
If Alaya’s Instagram Reels has left you craving those piping hot jalebis and fresh-out-of-the-tawa vada pav, fret not. You can easily make them at home. You can make a mouthwatering set of jalebis with this recipe. And if you love Vada pav, we can a special recipe that is simple and yummy.
