Currently on a vacation mode, Nia Sharma, who was last seen as Maanvi one of the protagonists in the Cinevistaas’ Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai, in a chat with Tellychakkar.com talks about her fitness mantra and her latest learnt dish Baingan ka Bharta and more.
Personal fitness mantra?
There is no particular fitness mantra as such that I follow as I do not like sweating it out. On the contrary, I prefer maintaining good eating habits.
Personal diet mantra…
(Laughs) Actually, I make it a point to not eat junk or other kind of food items that can cause pimples on my face. I have an extremely sensitive skin to take care of.
Are you a foodie?
If it was not for my skin, I could have been one.
I do not exercise.
Are you a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian?
I am a pure vegetarian.
It has to be Italian, Indian and continental food.
I love eating Hakka noodles. Rajma Chawal is one dish I would choose above any other food.
A must on your breakfast table?
Since I am not shooting, my morning starts with brunch; I just make it a point that I drink lots of water when I wake up to detoxify myself.
Sugar or sugar-free tea/coffee…
It doesn’t matter. I would have a small glass of milk to start my day.
Lunch generally consists of…
I am very choosy in what I eat. These days my mom cooks Kadhi chawal, Rajma Chawal and Dal Chawal amongst other foods. I find roti-sabji is too boring a dish. I am more of a rice eating person.
Dinner generally consists of?
Depends on my mood.
I do not eat dessert as such but I like eating the Sitaphal ice-cream from Naturals.
My favourite drink (non-alcoholic)…
Interesting! It would be Kiss on the Lips.
My favourite drink (alcoholic)…
I do not consume alcohol.
Most unusual dish I've tasted?
I had this Mexican dish which was overflowing with cheese; so much that one cannot digest.
Experiment with food…
I unfortunately cannot afford to do that. It causes pimples on my face.
On the streets, I love to have…
Street food is a complete ‘no-no’ for me.
Do you cook?
Yes, now that I am not shooting, I have more time in the world to cook. I have inherited the art of cooking and am a professional in this case. I know how to cook almost all dishes and I recently learnt how to cook Baingan Bharta.
I would like to advise people to eat in the right spirit to be healthy. It is not important to sweat it out to stay healthy.
