We Indians are thoroughly passionate about the cuisine of our country, but many global celebrities too enjoy it equally much. Recently, actor Tom Cruise had visited Asha Bhosle’s restaurant to sample some Indian food. He tried the delicious Chicken Tikka Masala, and he reportedly enjoyed it so much that he asked for a second helping! The succulent chicken curry is packed with flavours, which is why even British royal, Prince William, swears by it. In fact, he likes it so much that he even eats it as a pizza topping!
In a recent article on Hello! Magazine, the eating habits of Britain’s Royal Family have been revealed. Garlic, for instance, is a strict no-no in the royal household. Prince William, however, has a penchant for the Indian curry Chicken Tikka Masala. William has said in the past, “Chicken masala, love that, a bit of flavour – I’m not a vindaloo man put it that way.”
In fact, Prince William loves the gravy so much that his former chef even created a pizza with Chicken Tikka Masala as a topping. Former royal chef Darren McGrady said, “I [made] pizza all the time for William. In my second cookbook, The Royal Chef at Home, there’s a chicken tikka masala pizza [recipe] because he loves Indian food. The pizza combined the two.”
Recently, Prince William and Kate Middleton had cooked up some delicious Indian food to help out an NGO in England. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were seen making rotis and serving Dal and rice to the underprivileged. Take a look:
