As per a Google Trends report, people have looked up more recipes than at any other time in history in the wake of the coronavirus crisis, reported Daily Mail. Among the other top 10 recipes were French toast, chicken breasts, chocolate cake, carrot cake and the lately popular Dalgona coffee. For the uninitiated, this coffee, which has been going viral on social media, originated in South Korea. It is made by whipping equal portions of instant coffee powder, sugar and hot water till it becomes creamy, and then adding cold or hot milk to it.
Dinner recipes, on the other hand, included fried rice and spaghetti bolognese laced with minced beef.
Corroborating the trend, many Bollywood celebrities like Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor too have been experimenting with their culinary skills — from baking banana bread to healthy versions of cakes. Mira Kapoor recently baked a zucchini chocolate cake while Jahnvi Kapoor attempted a carrot cake recipe.
For those who cannot make a pizza dough could also try Neena Gupta hassle-free ‘desi’ pizza, with chapati for base.
Interestingly, among the most searched recipes — the third most-searched — was that of DIY hand sanitiser using aloe vera gel, especially after its shortage in the market.
