Mouni Roy Is A Vegetarian And Has Taught Herself To Cook Bengali Food

We had a fun afternoon speaking with Mouni Roy about her favourite food and life in Dubai. Like ordinary people, celebrities also crave certain foods they cannot replace with healthier alternatives. They allow themselves cheat days in their strict diet regimen to maintain fit and healthy lifestyles. Interestingly, a few Bollywood celebrities particularly like the spicy delicacies of Bengali cuisine.

The sweet and spongy rasgulla, made of chhena and soaked in a syrupy concoction, is a favourite for many. The fragrant nolen gurer, a winter speciality that’s made with date palm jaggery, is another delicacy that tickles their taste buds. And like a true foodie, Mouni Roy in her interview with Curly Tales talks about some of her favourite Bengali dishes. She also mentions how she mastered the cuisine during the lockdown! 

The Lockdown Helped Mouni To Become A Good Cook

The afternoon was delightful, filled with lively conversations about Mouni’s passion for food and her recent culinary explorations in Dubai. As we chatted, we couldn’t help but recall how brutal the lockdown had been for all of us. We were all confined within our houses’ four walls with no access to cooks or help.

However, Mouni’s love for food prompted her to experiment and explore her culinary skills. During this time, she learned how to cook her favourite Bengali cuisine, a true feast for her taste buds. Her mother’s invaluable help and guidance, shared over the phone, allowed her to master traditional family recipes and create delicious meals.

Mouni is an enthusiastic traveller who has been to Dubai numerous times. She is captivated by the food culture of this vibrant city and loves to explore new flavours and cuisines. Her latest discovery in Dubai is Instashop, an online platform where she frequently orders traditional sweets like modak and soan papdi. The city is renowned for its exquisite Arabic cuisine, and Mouni is a massive fan of the same. She savours the aroma and taste of Dubai’s traditional falafels and hummus. Although she is a vegetarian and doesn’t eat shawarma, she is always eager to try new vegetarian dishes and delicacies in Dubai.

After talking to Mouni, our interest in Bengali cuisine has undoubtedly increased.
