Along with 300 locals and a handful of expats, Elizabeth Gilbert or Julia Roberts ate the reel (real) life alu-sabzee at the langar (a mass lunch) at the Ashram Hari Mandir on Sunday afternoon.

Roberts is in city to shoot for the Hollywood version of the book Eat, Pray, Love. With four-tier security cover, the entire 25-acre Ashram and Pataudi Palace, where shooting is taking place, has been turned into a fort.

On the eve of the launch of shooting at the Ashram, Roberts reportedly enjoyed some North Indian cuisine, especially desserts like Gulaab Jamun that she liked the most.

The Pretty Woman star landed in Delhi on September 17. She has brought her twins children -- Hazel and Phinnaeus -- and two-year-old son Henry along with her.

Reports said Roberts who is living on Nafisa Floor of Pataudi Palace, enjoyed a bath at the palace pool and a lunch afterwards.

Before the four-hour-long shooting at the Langar Hall of the Ashram, the ashram's pujaris organised a havan for the success of the shooting. Roberts participated in the havan along with her kids.

Some scenes were also shot at the ashram's library.
