Manoj Bajpayee Turns Chef; Cooks His Childhood Fave Bihari Aloo Bhujiya At Ranveer Brar’s Kashkan In Dubai

That Manoj Bajpayee is one of the finest actors in the Indian film industry is no secret. But perhaps, the fact that he is an amazing cook, may be. Hailing from Bihar, the Family Man star wears many feathers in his hat, one of which is cooking. In an episode of Mashable Middle East’s ‘Mashable Gatecrashes’, Manoj Bajpayee is seen cooking his favourite Bihar Aloo Bhujiya at celebrity chef Ranveer Brar’s Kashkan In Dubai.

Manoj Bajpayee Gate Crashes Ranveer Brar’s Kitchen & Prepares Bihari Aloo Bhujiya

In a reel posted by Mashable Middle East, Manoj Bajpayee is seen chopping potatoes. Deeply engrossed in the task, he reveals that Chef Ranveer Brar has allowed him in his kitchen at Dubai’s famous Kashkan. “I’m in Dubai and I wanted to have Bihari Aloo Bhujiya. I was craving it,” says the actor with a childlike grin. He adds, that Aloo Bhujiya is a dish that can be whipped quickly. “It tastes yum with rice and dal,” quips Manoj.

As Manoj cooks the dish, Ranveer Brar tells Mashable ME that many people (celebrities) visit the kitchen and pretend to cook dishes. Many use ready-made food for the camera. The celebrity chef assertively adds that it was the first time someone cooked a dish from scratch with patience while enjoying every bit of the process. “It is what it is,” cuts Ranveer as Manoj tries to do away with the credit.

And I’m going to eat your dish,” jokes Ranveer.
