Written by Priyadarshini Dawn • 

With the rising cases of COVID19, it is important for global citizens to take certain preventive measures. The most important of them being, self-quarantine. Every household has been advised to stay home and help with the flattening of the curve. Even our Bollywood stars have taken to social media to remind their followers, again and again, to stay home. Being at home for several days is accompanied by the problem of having too much time in one’s hand. To resolve this, many people are trying out new things that they shared a passion for but didn’t have the time to pursue.

Our celebrities are no exceptions. Like their fans, they have also taken to social media to flaunt their efficient household skills. Chores that they don’t get the time to do in their busy scheduled life. One of the most talked-about skills among celebs right now is cooking. Their followers have been delighted by the delicious spread of homemade dishes that are shared on social media during the period of self-isolation. Take a look at these dishes shared by your favorite celebs that you can try at home during quarantine:

1. Pizza

Mouni Roy’s followers were delighted with her for sharing the recipe for the quintessential Italian fast food that inspires mutual love worldwide. She was not the only one. The social media went bonkers when Ranveer Singh gushed about his wife’s handmade bade-bade pizzas. However, he was not exaggerating. The pizza did look yummy, and therefore, Deepika Padukone indeed deserved all the praise from her dearest hubby.

Pizza doughs are easily available in the supermarkets. If not, it can be homemade with simple ingredients, like, dry yeast, bread flour, salt, and sugar. The toppings vary according to one’s taste. While some prefer jalapenos, pepper, mushrooms, and chicken, others prefer the commonly hated, pineapple. Choose your own toppings, and experiment in your free time with this easy-to-make dish.

I love to cook! I love cooking for my family and friends but with my busy schedule, I hardly get time to pursue this passion of mine. But with this self isolation upon us, I thought of utilising this time in a constructive and healthy way by cooking some sumptuous and delicious ‘Malabari veg stew for the soul’. I have got this recipe from mom @joycearora and a bit from my friend Maunika @cookinacurry who’s a lovely cook. Everyone at home simply loves this stew and we are going to have it with some white rice and some delicious gluten-free, vegan chickpea bread that my friend Raveena @iamayogisattva made for me. M in for a lovely treat, I hope you too utilise this time to do something positive and healthy. Stay calm and stay safe! #stayhome#quarantine #covid_19
