She shared a short video of herself adding a tadka of red chillies and curry leaves to the rich yellow gravy.
In addition to this, the actress who has a sweet tooth baked not one, but two delicious cakes in the past few weeks. First, she made a simple, gluten-free vanilla cake, which was not only healthy but also looked yummy. Sharing the post, the 35-year-old wrote: “Here’s a cake to celebrate the festivities in lockdown style! Happy to everyone! PS- the cake was slightly cracked cause it’s gluten-free but any of you who know me know I loved cracked people and things. PPS – do not over whip the frosting else it will curdle into yucky…Ok, bye.” Shruti Haasan topped the cake with some whipped cream and raspberries.
She followed this up with a decadent chocolate cake. Shruti Haasan made sure that the cake looked just as lovely as it tasted by decorating it with intricate designs made using whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
