Every since COVID-19 has struck the world, many government officials have been taking necessary measurements to stop the pandemic. While many are under lockdown, following social distancing, quarantine and self-isolation, many have found various ways to stay occupied while at home.

Speaking about the same, many Bollywood celebrities have found their calling! While many chose to clean and dance, a few took up singing and cooking. B-townies like Malaika Arora, Alia Bhatt and Preity Zinta shared how much they are delighted to be at home with family.

I love to cook! I love cooking for my family and friends but with my busy schedule, I hardly get time to pursue this passion of mine. But with this self isolation upon us, I thought of utilising this time in a constructive and healthy way by cooking some sumptuous and delicious 'Malabari veg stew for the soul'. I have got this recipe from mom @joycearora and a bit from my friend Maunika @cookinacurry who's a lovely cook. Everyone at home simply loves this stew and we are going to have it with some white rice and some delicious gluten-free, vegan chickpea bread that my friend Raveena @iamayogisattva made for me. M in for a lovely treat, I hope you too utilise this time to do something positive and healthy. Stay calm and stay safe! #stayhome#quarantine #covid_19
