Sony SAB’s inspirational show Kaatelal & Sons continues to keep its viewers engaged with its light-hearted and motivational storyline. Paras Arora, who essays the role of Dr. Pramod in the show has garnered immense appreciation and love from the fans across the country with his sparkling chemistry with Jiya Shankar.
In a candid conversation with Paras Arora, he revealed that he is a foodie and believes in counting memories and not calories. He also loves to try his hands on cooking during idle time to soothe and appease his taste buds.
Paras Arora, expressing his love for food said, “I am a big-time foodie and I love exploring different cuisines since my childhood. So, whenever I get some free time, I ensure to try my hands on cooking and enrich my taste buds. I feel that a good meal is my happy place whenever I am low or feel sad, it makes me feel happy and uplifts my mood. As an actor, I always try keeping a tab on my food habits, but I prefer having cheat days in between to explore and try different dishes. During these cheat days, I experiment with different cuisines and try Indian street food to have the real flavour of our country’s food. The spicy flavour of street food makes me crave for it when I am on a strict diet, but cheat days are my favorite days of the month when I genuinely enjoy eating. Comfort food for me is Maa Ke Haath Ka Khana and Paneer, whenever I am sad or upset, I prefer eating either of this to cheer up my mood.”
Talking about trying his hands on cooking, he said, “Prior to last year, I have never tried cooking but since every other restaurant was shut, I experimented on cooking a simple dish by watching tutorials on YouTube and taking some real lessons from my mother on a video call. I would not say it was a super-hit dish, but it satisfied my hunger and made me happy, which I could not hold of. I believe I am not a great cook but the food I cook, I do it with all my heart.”
Concluding his cooking experience, he said, “I believe it was for my taste buds that I genuinely tried my hands on cooking for the first time. It was a lifetime experience and I have evolved as a cook from the day till today. So, along with eating, now cooking too delights me. Everyone on the sets is also fond of my cooking, so I have planned to invite them all to my house once things get back to normal, which I hope gets better soon. That is when I will try to feed them up with my specialities, Baked Pasta or any Punjabi style dish.”
