Mohit Marwah – the Fugly star discusses his diet fundas

In conversation with the Fugly star, Mohit Marwah who happens to be Anil Kapoor’s nephew.

The first thing I have in the morning: A cup of black coffee.

I breakfast on: A lot of eggs and oats.

My diet preference: I am a non- vegetarian.

My favourite food: I love North Indian food.

My lunch: Grilled chicken, vegetables and brown rice.

An accompaniment I must have with my meals: I need a beverage with every meal. Earlier, I drank a lot of sodas, now I just restrict myself to a juice.

My Sunday lunch: Sunday is my cheat day so I eat everything from pastas to butter chicken to Chinese food.

For health reasons I: Have multivitamins and avoid fried food.

My evening snack: A handful of nuts and maybe a smoothie.

My dinner: Grilled chicken and steamed fish when I want to feel healthy. When I want to be unhealthy, I eat junk from the street as well.

My favourite dessert: Tiramisu.

My favourite fruit: All kinds of berries.

A childhood memory associated with food: I have been an avid watcher of cooking shows on television and I watch a lot of Travel and Living. I am a wannabe chef.

I binge on: Peanuts throughout the day – it’s good in small portions but I tend to overdo it. I can eat peanuts in my food or as a snack. I am nuts about peanuts.

My culinary abilities: I usually pick out healthy recipes online and then I try to create them at home. Because I stayed alone for a while, by default I had to cook. During my student days, I would cook a lot. I enjoy cooking a lot, but I don’t get much time for it.

My worst kitchen disaster: There have been lots. I have confidently called friends home and presented them with a dish that has fallen flat. A pasta dish went wrong and once chicken got burnt. It’s okay; I’m not a professional cook.

My favourite cook in the world: Currently it is Roger Mooking. He is a Canadian chef, musician and TV host. He is so entertaining, and he explores the flavours from all around the globe.

I feel guilty after eating: Chhole Bhature.

My favourite spice: Cayenne pepper. I love spicy food!

My favourite kitchen appliance: Microwave for when I am lazy.

My favourite dish: Steamed dimsums.

My idea of a romantic meal: Excellent food next to a water body.

My Favourite Recipe: Golden Rod Eggs

How to make Golden Rod Eggs?


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper to taste
500 ml milk
8 slices white bread, toasted
8 hard-cooked eggs
1tbsp paprika (as per taste)

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour to make a roux, and cook for 10 minutes until the roux begins to lighten in color. Whisk in the milk, and bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 10 minutes more, whisking occasionally. Add salt and pepper according to taste. Separate the hard-cooked egg whites from the yolks.
Roughly chop the whites and stir into the white sauce. Press the yolks through a mesh strainer and set aside. To serve, place a slice of toast on a plate, and pour some white sauce over top. Garnish with egg yolks and a sprinkle of paprika.
