A thing for tea

india Updated: Jul 30, 2010 01:04 IST

Dal makhni, egg curry and masala chai figure on the top of singer Sunidhi Chauhan’s favourites list. Here's a look at more of the singer's favourites.

The first thing I have in the morning: A cup of masala tea with ginger. I have about 4-5 cups of tea in the entire day. For breakfast, I have omelette with bread and a glass of mosambi juice.

My diet: I am a foodie. I am basically a vegetarian. But I eat chicken sandwiches or burgers. I may make concession for fish. And I love eggs in any form.

My lunch: When I am at home, I eat a proper meal which comprises dal, chawal, sabzi and roti. When I’m recording, I eat anything, be it a sandwich or samosas or bhel. In summer, I’d have sweet lassi and preferably light meals.

My favourite snacks: In the rains, I would love a plate of paneer pakodas, hot samosas and a cup of hot tea. I also enjoy eating patties and oven-fresh cheese pizzas.

I relish: Rich and creamy orange biscuits as well as makhni dal with soaked-in-butter tandoori rotis. I also love kadi with soft pakodas, mashed potatoes and baked beans.

My comfort food: Paani puri, bhel and all kinds of chaats.

My dinner: When I am dining at home, I sometimes request my mother to make my favourite egg curry. The food that smells wow
today is egg curry.

My favourite dessert: I am not a dessert person. I eat a gulab jamun, occasionally. But I make an exception for vanilla pastries and chocolates.

A childhood memory associated with food: I wasn’t a fussy eater, but I made my mom run after me to make me eat. I loved eating rajma with roti. I would love chewing each bean of rajma and enjoying its texture.

My idea of a romantic meal: I’d like to sit at a beach, under those big umbrellas. My drink would be non alcoholic Pina colada. The sun should be setting and we should talk, talk and talk.
