In her latest Instagram Stories, she has posted a short video of several food items including chicken and cheese Manchurian, fried rice and noodles spread on a table in an Abu Dhabi restaurant.

Her posts on Instagram often reveal Mouni’s foodie side. In May, she posted a post in which she was seen enjoying spaghetti. We found this dish spicy after seeing red chillies. The spaghetti seemed to be cooked in a spicy pepper and cream sauce. See what it looked like here.
Earlier, in another video, Mouni was seen tasting a chocolate ice cream cone and we could totally relate to it. Read about it here.
Contrary to popular belief, spicy food can be beneficial for health. Spices such as cinnamon, turmeric, garlic, ginger, and cumin, as well as chilies, offer many health benefits – such as longevity and increased metabolism. Curcumin found in turmeric reduces inflammation in the body. Ginger and garlic also have anti-inflammatory properties.
Take Chicken Manchurian for example. There’s ginger and garlic and loads of other spices in this dish. Fried chicken balls are cooked in a spicy sauce batter and onions. A traditional Chinese dish, it can be easily cooked at home.
Similarly, Paneer Manchurian is also a delight for your taste buds. Indo-Chinese dish is making a splash on the streets. However, we cannot step out due to the lockdown. So why not make this dish at home? Both Chicken and Paneer Manchurian can be served with simple steamed rice, Hakka noodles or fried rice.
You can try many variations of fried rice as well as fried rice with eggs and garlic, vegetable fried rice, or the popular Indonesian nasi goreng. This is the Balinese version of Chicken Fried Rice. Chicken, Cabbage, Carrots, Bok Choy, Kaffir Lime Leaves, Balinese Red Paste give this dish a unique flavour.
Kaffir lime leaves emit an intensely citrus aroma and are known to detoxify the blood, promote good oral health, and stimulate the digestive system.
