Luck By Chance director Zoya Akhtar, who is currently helming the Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol-starrer Running With The Bulls, says that she likes good food but can barely cook. Here, she shares more of her foodie ways:

The first thing I have in the morning: Hot water and lemon. Later, I have amla juice. My breakfast is porridge with dry fruits and nuts. If I am in the mood then I eat egg with toast.

My diet: I am a non-vegetarian, but I eat my vegetables everyday. I am a carnivore.

My lunch: Is usually whatever there is at home. I am a rice eater; it’s a compulsion. If I don’t eat rice then I eat bread. I like meat and fish.

My evening snack: I like to binge on fruits. My favourites are mangoes and strawberries.

My favourite desserts: I like anything with chocolates. I can’t resist buying chocolates. I don’t like white chocolates, chocolates with alcohol or fruit. Besides these, I like all chocolates. In Indian desserts, I like kaju barfi, boondi laddu and kulfi.

My culinary abilities: I make nothing. I can make grape salad, that’s about it. I am not a cook; I am an eater.

My comfort food: Khichdi and soup.

My idea of a romantic meal: I like good food, so I can’t say for me a romantic meal is sushi or something. I like food. I’d like some place that can make me a great meal.
