Shruti HaasanThe first thing I have in the morning: Fruits and loads of water. My breakfast is usually my heaviest meal as I need the energy for the rest of the day. I love dosas.

My favourite in non-vegetarian food: I absolutely adore sea food!

My favourite in vegetarian food: I like good vegetarian South food — it’s my comfort food.

My favourite desserts: Jalebis and ice cream. I can’t resist buying chocolates. I stock them up even if I don’t always eat them.

Favourite restaurants abroad: In Las Vegas, I love Koji’s, which has great Japanese food. I also loved the food in South Africa — most of the places there have superb sea food.

Eating out: In Mumbai, I love the disco dosas of the street stalls. In the South, I love the idli shop, which has the best idlis vadas and chutneys that I reserve for my binge days.

My culinary abilities: I just started cooking seriously about a year ago and I find it really creative and relaxing. I bake a lot of cakes. I am also learning how to make South Indian and Goan food, so it’s all very exciting.

A childhood memory associated with food: Dal rice and rotis with some homemade subzi. There is always something wonderful about homemade food — it’s like a story of that person’s kitchen.

My comfort food: Sambar saadam and papads.

Favourite cuisines: Indian and Japanese. They’ve both got very unique flavours.

Memorable Bollywood meal: Mr Mithun Chakravarthy’s chicken curry during Luck was memorable. He cooked for all of us... it was delicious.
