For ‘Govindudu Andarivadele’ actor Kajal Aggarwal, the quarantine has proved to be the perfect time to hone a delicious skill – making a samosa. While under lockdown, the Tamil and Telugu movie star is spending some quality time with her mum and learning a trick or two. Kajal captioned this image, “My first attempt ever at making this (if I may say so myself!) decadent, very punjabi Khasta Samosa. Such fun learning the art of manoeuvring the dough into the perfect cones under the fine tutelage (and very strict quality control) of my master chef mommy, learning new skills, samosa lover forever. (sic).”
Huma Qureshi, whose movie credits include ‘Badlapur’ and ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’, decided to make her sibling cheesecake for his birthday.

There’s something absolutely mouth-watering about the freshly made masala dosa with all the accompaniments – so try not to drool when you see this photo actress Preity Zinta put up on social media. The 45-year-old Bollywood actress, last seen in 2018 comedy ‘Bhaiaji Superhit’, captioned this picture, posted on day 16 of the lockdown: “Yesss ! Finally learnt how to make Masala Dosa 😋 It’s incredible how we have not gone out for 16 days nor met anyone. Feels strange, but I’d rather be home safe than sorry. Its really nice to hang with mom & learn recipes of some of my fav. Dishes. Trying to stay positive & productive while we stay in. (sic)”

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, a National Film Award winner, is apparently very handy in the kitchen, too. She whipped up a chocolate walnut cake, which if the comments are to be believed was superb. One wonders how to stays so slim.
