Anushka Sharma has always been vocal about her fondness for food. Whether it’s some exotic dessert or a full-fledged traditional meal, the actress enjoys it all with much zeal and happiness. However, many times, we have seen her gorging on proper authentic South Indian meals. Well, she is back again with another food post of what looks like her favourite cuisine. Anushka started off the week with a super delicious sadya meal. On her Instagram Stories, we saw a picture of her sumptuous lunch served on a banana leaf. The meal, which was served in a banana leaf, featured a couple of rice dishes, accompanied by a range of curries. There were about three different curries cooked with vegetables. One of them seems like avial, a mixed vegetable curry that carries drumsticks. We could also spot some fritters kept on the side. The meal also included various flavourful chutneys (presumably pachadis) and a portion of pickle on the side. Anushka wrote, “Finger-licking delicious vegetarian meal.”
