December 26, 2016: If you are a foodie and your idea of a perfect day means curling up on sofa, watching a nice movie and having your favourite food- well, here is a perfect solution. Film industry has always been inspired by food. Hollywood has been making some great food movies since a long time. Movies like Ratatouille, Burnt, No Reservations, Chef, Julie and Julia, The Hundred-Foot journey, and much more have been appreciated worldwide.

Bollywood is not very far. We have been having a lot of food-centric movies in the past few years. Here are a few Hindi food movies we have enjoyed:

  1. Baawarchi

Light hearted comedy movie, directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Bawarchi showed Rajesh Khanna, as Raghu, working as a cook for a lazy joint family. Making delicious cuisines is just one of the many talents of Raghu. He manages the household and performs the chores at a lightning speed.

The movie is a sheer novelty of actors, script as well as songs.

  1. Ramji Londonwale

This 2005 movie starred R. Madhavan and a guest appearance from none other than Amitabh Bachchan. Though the movie was released without any mega hype, the plot of the movie does all the talking. The story of how a cook from a small town in India reaches London only to find out that his boss is dead.

He makes Indian delicacies to impress his love interest. The idea of sugar-free halwa makes him very popular among the London crowd.

  1. Cheeni Kum

The R Balakrishnan directed, Cheeni Kum, portrayed the love story of a 64-year-old chef at the finest Indian Restaurant in London and a 34-year-old software engineer. The twist comes in the story when Amitabh has to impress his father-in-law.

This is the only Indian movie till date that gives you an insight to a kitchen, run by an India.  The old chef prepares delicacies to prove his worth to his father-in-law.

  1. Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana

The film shows how much people can bond over a hot kadhai.

Shashi’s business started gaining popularity. It was the only hope in her life where her family kept demeaning her. She finds a friend in the US who is a French chef. So, basically, the story revolved around food.

Do red velvet cheesecake, french fries or fish fries entice you but you refrain from eating those owing to the high-calories they contain? Take heart.

Choosing these high-calorie options first might help you opt for a healthier meal later, says a new research.

The study showed choosing indulgent dessert first may lead to eating lower-calorie meals.

“We believe diners who chose the indulgent dessert first then picked healthier main and side dishes to make up for their high-calorie dessert.

“Diners who picked the healthier dessert may have thought they already had done a good deed for their bodies so they deserved higher-calorie food further down the cafeteria line,” said Martin Reimann, Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona in the US.

The experiment was conducted in the cafeteria of the EGADE Business School at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico.

For the study, researchers included 134 diners aged between 18 and 60 with an average age of 32.

They placed either a healthy or less healthy dessert (fresh fruit versus lemon cheesecake).

There were also healthy and less healthy main and side dishes including grilled chicken fajitas and a small salad or fried fish and french fries.

The findings, published by the American Psychological Association, showed that diners who chose the cheesecake first, were twice as likely to order the lighter main dish later and ultimately consumed fewer calories than diners who chose the fresh fruit first.

“People should be aware that their initial food choices and their mindset may affect the overall healthiness of their meals,” suggested Reimann. (IANS)
