Mandira Bedi just whipped up an exotic dish for son Vir. She posted an Instagram video of her showing her son how to cook risotto.
Vir, however, knows the dish as “Italian khichdi”, revealed her mother in the post. “You know Vir, when you were a kid and all you used to want to eat was dal rice, the way I convinced you to have risotto was I used to call it ‘Italian dal chawal (rice)’ or ‘Italian khichdi,” the mother is seen telling her son in the video. Take a look:
