It’s no hidden fact that Bollywood star, Kareena Kapoor is a big foodie. She loves Chinese and staple desi stuff. While shooting for Bodyguard with Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha at Marriott Courtyard in Pune, Kareena had a big problem with her Peeli Dal. She did not like the preparation and made it a point to communicate it to the Hotel’s GM. I was at audible range and this is what Kareena Kapoor said, “ Your chef can’t make Peeli-Dal. Tell him to mix the Pink Dal (Masoor Dal) with Yellow Dal (Moong Dal) to make the perfect Yellow Dal. In fact, when Chef is here, ask him to call and I’ll explain.”
I am not a foodie, nor do I know much about Dals but I checked it with known foodies and they all said that Kareena was absolutely right. They said that when the Pink-Masoor Dal is mixed with Yellow Moong Dal, the Dal turns out to be ‘karari’ (crispy, I guess). Just Moong Dal makes the Dal very soapy or soggy. I quiet get the point now. Wah Kareena! You should start a restaurant now.
