In times where work from home is the need of the hour, the term ‘Quarantine Cooking’ has come into play and how. This is the time when most of us are home and it only makes sense to eat right and do good by our bodies. While most of us find this self-isolation time to do things that we’ve always been longing to do, eating right or indulging sometimes can be a mood elevator. Even celebrities are taking to the ‘gram and sharing their recipes. So, let’s see what these celebrities have been brewing up in their kitchens.
1. Malaika Arora
Professing her love for cooking & utilizing the time on her hands, Malaika is making Malabari Vegetable Stew, which she calls, soul food. This recipe is inspired by various people in her life, from her mother Joyce Arora to food writer & chef, Maunika Gowardhan.

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
2. Siddharth Malhotra
While attempting to make Butter Garlic Prawns at home, he perfectly captions the post, “It’s never too late to learn something new.” On that note, I also think that now is the time to reskill & try things that makes you happy. Is cooking one of them? What does your quarantine cooking menu look like? Do tell us.
3. Ananya Panday
Although she’s not making them, even trying to help is counted. Baking is therapeutic to many & who can say no to cookies, right?
4. Mouni Roy
What’s cooking in Mouni’s oven? Pizzas! Staying at home seems like fun when Pizzas are on the menu! It doesn’t look like she needed much help with that. Pizzas are a tough nut to crack but she’s doing it quite effortlessly though!

5. Shilpa Shetty
She shares her at-home Granola Bars which are super easy-to-make and is a lot quicker than regular cakes and bars too. Now, we agree that staying at home makes us crave for kinds of things, but these healthy granola bars are perfect to beat those sugar cravings!

I truly believe what can’t be cured, must be endured; and endure it, I will! Keeping yourself busy, sticking to a clean diet, and staying fit even when there are enough reasons to not do so, is an example of discipline. It’s most needed to keep you on track and not sweep over all your progress. So, to make the most of my time off work and at home, I’ve been whipping up something new almost every day. Today, I’ve made the Granola Bars at home. It’s easy-to-make and is a lot quicker than regular cakes and bars too. Here’s how you can make it at home too! Ingredients: * 1.1/2cups rolled oats * 1/2 tsp salt * 1/2cup oat flour, or process oats in a blender to make your own * 1/4 cup chia seeds * 1/4 cup shredded coconut( dry) * 1/4 cup chopped, dried cranberries * 3 tbspoons pistachios * 1/4 cup almond butter * 1/2 cup raw agave or honey * 4 tbspoons coconut sugar * 1 mashed banana * 1 tsp pure vanilla extract Instructions: 1. Line an 8-inch pan with parchment paper. Set aside. 2. If you wish to bake the bars, preheat oven to 350 F. 3. Stir together all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk liquid ingredients together in a separate bowl, then stir wet into dry. 4. Transfer to the prepared pan. 5. Smooth down firmly, using a second sheet of parchment or wax paper. Press down as hard as you can. 6. For no-bake healthy granola bars, chill until firm. (The no-bake option is also firmer if you use coconut oil.) 7. For baked granola bars, cook on the center rack for 18 minutes, then press down firmly again. Let cool completely before cutting into bars. #SwasthRahoMastRaho #weekendvibes #staysafe #stayhome #selfisolation #BakingGoodness #eathealthy

Janta curfew today needs an achaar recipe with simpler ingredients and a short prep time. Try my moms secret recipe of Aloo ka achaar. It’s domestic queen coronation stuff. You can dress it up with many more variations adding channa, garlic & peas. Best eaten with freshly homemade mathri ! Come on then , let’s stay busy today :)) PS: My son says achaar recipe videos are damaging to my cool quotient. So this is a risk I’m taking. Make it worth my while 😁
7. Padma Lakshmi
With all the time in the world, Padma Lakshmi makes a Sweet & Sour Shrimp with Cherry Tomatoes. In her caption she says, “You can also make this with chicken or other proteins!” Hey Padma, you’re lucky to have your krishna making your quarantine cooking time so much fun.
