Here is how actor Rahul Bose adds zing to his daily food fare.

First thing in the morning
One glass of water between 5 and 5:30 in the morning. After a routine workout, I take a bowl of curd with a small amount of honey in it. And later I take either idli or wada.

Chicken sandwitch, hamburger or just a simple toast with a glass of milk. I also love to have vegetarian food like dal, roti and sabzi. I specially love to eat stale chapati.

Favourite vegetables
I absolutely relish eating Baingan ka bharta, Zeera-aalu, Stuffed capsicum, Spinach and Masoor dal.

Favourite home made recipe
I love to mix various cuisines. Dal-rice, dry mutton and chicken. I have never had tea or coffee since my childhood.

Evening snacks
Around 5 in the evening, I take a full meal. If I am at a shooting, either burger or idli suffice. If I am at home, I take dal-rice.

Menu for the dinner depends on where I am. If I am at the shoot, I eat unit-food. It could be a food made by my sister or restaurant food.

Favourite desserts
I don't take dessert after dinner. But I love to gobble on Tofil, Rasgulla, gulab jamun, cham cham and mishti dohi. I absolutely cannot resist Begali sweets.

I can make fried tomato, fried eggs and juice. My dad makes a wonderful lakhnavi chicken chaap, Mustard fish, fried cutlets and baingan ka bharta.

Favourite fruits
Papaya, Banana and Water Melon

Ideal romantic meal
I would love to have a meal that cmoprises Mutton curry, Aloo matar, chapati and frozen daal on a chilly winter evening at a North Indian dhaba.
