4 Bollywood Movies That Are All About Food

Food is often a great topic of conversation. So great in fact, that there are entire movies around it! Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana

It’s honestly one of the simplest yet funniest movies I’ve seen. Revolving around an old family recipe and a secret ingredient associated with it, the movie is a hilarious ride of twists and turns revolving around recreating the family recipe- chicken Khurana and also guessing the secret ingredient correctly.

The Lunchbox

It’s such a joy to watch this movie, honestly. A love story that begins and blossoms, thanks to a mix-up by Mumbai’s dabbawalas. Ila, trying to spice up her marriage by sending her husband notes with his food, accidentally gets in contact with Saajan. This accident leads to them getting close and ultimately seeking each other out, despite having never seen each other. If you’re a fan of the long-distance, pen-pal trope, this one is for you.

Daawat-E-Ishq

Food and Aditya Roy Kapur in a single film. What more do you need? (am I simping? Yes I totally am.) Revolving around Gullu’s attempt to con prospective grooms and scam them of money, but eventually falling in love with the charming chef, Tariq, this movie makes you want to book a trip to Lucknow right away. And yes, the kebabs are actually amazing, not just because Tariq is serving them. (no I will not stop simping!)

Chef

Based on a Jon Favreau film of the same name, this film really fell under the radar in my opinion. Roshan, a professional chef, travels back to Kochi to reconnect with family and get his passion back. There he decides to open up a food truck and realises his son shares his passion for cooking and tries to gain inspiration while making the food truck successful. This movie is a great depiction of how people bond over their mutual love for food.

Ingredients required
Large size eggs, room temperature – 6
Granulated sugar – 1 cup or 210 gms
All-purpose flour – 1 cup or 130 grams
Baking powder – ½ tsp
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

How to make sponge cake:

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line bottoms of two 9″ cake pan with parchment paper (do not grease the sides).

In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat 6 large eggs for 1 minute on high speed. With the mixer on, gradually add 1 cup sugar and continue beating for 8-10 minutes until thick and fluffy.

Whisk together 1 cup flour and ½ tsp baking powder, then sift this mixture into fluffy egg mixture one-third at a time. Fold with a spatula with each addition just until incorporated. Scrape spatula from the bottom to catch any pockets of flour and stop mixing when no streaks of flour remain. Do not over-mix, or you will deflate the batter.

Divide evenly between prepared cake pans (it helps if you have a kitchen scale to weight the pans).

Bake at 350˚F for 23-28 minutes (my oven took 25 min), or until the top is golden brown. 6. Remove from pan by sliding a thin spatula around the edges, then transfer to a wire rack and remove parchment backing.

Cool cakes to room temperature, then slice the layers equally with a serrated knife.
