Talk about cooking and there's Malaika Arora who too has been whipping out delicious treats at home. Some time back, she had shared a post on Instagram where she is seen making a pot of delicious 'Malabari veg stew for the soul'. Malaika had mentioned that she got the recipe from mom Joyce Arora and a bit from her friend Maunika @cookinacurry who's a lovely cook. Malaika also revealed that she loves to cook for her family and friends but with her busy schedule, she hardly gets time to pursue this passion of hers.

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

It seems like South Indian dishes are a favourite of Shilpa Shetty as well. She had shared a breakfast story where she was seen enjoying a plate of dosa.

Deepika Padukone in her 'Productivity in the time of COVID-19' series had shared a post of her cooking experiments at home. It seemed to be quite a spread we would say.

Then there was Alia Bhat too, who in her 'stayed home' series advised her fans to be indoors and bake like she did with her sister Shaheen Bhatt by making a chocolate cake and a grain free paleo banana bread.

So brush up your cooking skills like these celebs and enjoy delicious treats.
