Navya Naveli Nanda Reveals Bachchan Family Has Recipes Named After People, Shares Hilarious Deets

The Bachchan clan is one of the most respected families in Bollywood, and they believe in following certain traditions. In the latest episode of What The Hell Navya 2, Shweta Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, and Navya Naveli Nanda opened up about their family’s culinary traditions. They also spilled the beans on their eating habits and revealed hilarious anecdotes.

Navya Naveli Nanda reveals her family's tradition of naming the dishes

During one of the segments of the podcast, Navya Naveli Nanda shared that the Bachchan family has a tradition of naming dishes after those who excel at making them. She also shared the specialities of each family member in the kitchen and that they all love relishing aloo chilka. Speaking along the same lines, Navya said:

“Every house has a specialty and I know something that people love eating at our house – aloo chilka. It’s actually quite cute because we have named certain recipes after people like we have ‘Nani Ma’s khichadi,’ which she makes in a Bengali way. We have ‘Mama Toast’. It’s a sandwich that Nani has invented. You have ‘Navya’s aloo’ because it’s the recipe that I have created. We also have ‘Shweta’s pasta.’ Nana always says, ‘I will eat Shweta’s pasta.'”

Jaya Bachchan further revealed that Amitabh Bachchan has a special fondness for their daughter, Shweta’s pasta. She said that Big B often asks if Shweta is making the pasta, and if they take somebody else's name, the legendary actor asks his daughter to make it for him. In Jaya's words:

“He (Big B) asks, ‘Is Shweta making the pasta?’ If you say ‘no’, he will ask you to tell Shweta to make it.”

Abhishek Bachchan is the worst cook

Later, Shweta chimed in and jokingly mentioned that Agastya has no dish named after him. To which, Jaya also humorously mentioned that though Abhishek keeps on bragging about his amazing mutton curry, she has never tasted it. In her words:

“Neither does Abhishek. He keeps saying, ‘I make amazing mutton curry,’ but I am yet to see that mutton curry.”
