Ican cook Chi­nese dishes pretty well,” says ac­tor San­jeeda Shaikh, who pre­pared Hot Gar­lic Pa­neer sauce and rice for HT City Culi­nary Fest, Sea­son 3.

The Ek Hasina Thi ac­tor who re­veals that her two favourite cuisines are Chi­nese and Mugh­lai, says, “I love mak­ing noo­dles as they are sim­ple and quick to pre­pare. Of­ten I pair noo­dles with chicken gravy. I also love Mugh­lai food. My hus­band Aamir (Aamir Ali; ac­tor) and I have re­cently opened a restau­rant which serves In­dian cui­sine. From ga­louti ke­babs to chicken tan­doori, we serve au­then­tic Mugh­lai food.

The ever-smil­ing pop­u­lar girl from tele­vi­sion, re­calls an in­ter­est­ing anec­dote on her love for food. “When Aamir and I started dat­ing, he took me to a Chi­nese restau­rant on one of our ini­tial dates. When you are try­ing to get to know each other, dur­ing the ini­tial phase of dat­ing, most girls act coy and put their best foot for­ward. I was so im­pressed with Aamir that he had done so much re­search on me and found out that I loved Chi­nese, I hogged and didn’t hold back. My then-boyfriend, nowhus­band is pretty im­pressed with my eat­ing habits, though it doesn’t show in my fig­ure,” adds the ac­tor.
