We decided to wind back the clock and remember the time when the Baadshah of Bollywood spoke about his food habits. The great actor who hails from a north Indian background spoke about his favourite food. He said he is a huge fan of Tandoori Chicken.
Tandoori chicken is prepared by ‘roasting chicken marinated in yoghurt and spices in a tandoor, which is a cylindrical clay oven. The special dish was initiated from the Indian subcontinent and is famous in several parts of the world. During an interview with a leading daily, SRK said that he loves the dish so much that he can eat it 365 days a year.
Talking about Shah Rukh Khan’s regular diet, the actor usually skips breakfast as he wakes up late in the morning. But when he wakes up early in the morning, then he eats some egg whites, a glass of orange juice and a vitamin tablet.
Shah Rukh Khan usually ignores eating food cooked on sets and likes to bring his food from home. As far as Lunch and Dinner is concerned, SRK eats tandoori chicken and tandoori roti with an exception of mutton at times. He combines the protein part with some bean sprouts or a vegetable dish.
