Many of us don't know that Kartik Soni, who plays Dilip in Colors Sanskaar - Dharohar Apnon Ki has very good culinary skills. The young actor spreads this happiness amongst his co-stars as well. Some days he also takes different kind of dishes cooked by him at home along with him to the sets.
When contacted Kartik to know more about his cooking skills, he told us, "I am cooking since I was in class 6th. My Mom and Dad are doctors so they used to be busy with their work and sometimes I had to stay alone at home. I never used to like the food cooked by maid so I just started experimenting with food to make it better to eat. I used to watch Sanjeev Kapoor's show and learn cooking from there. I used to cook Paneer and Pulav during my college days and I have gained expertise in cooking Mughlai too now. I am a vegetarian but I also know how to cook non-vegetarian dishes. I know cooking Biryani, Chops, Murg Musallam, etc."
Kartik loves to treat his co-stars on the sets with the dishes cooked by him. Talking on the same, he said, "I daily take something along with me for my co-stars. Aroonaji is a big fan of Shreekhand prepared by me and she always asks me to bring Shreekhand for her. I take different kinds of dishes like Kadhi, Kheer, Sambhar, Paan shots, etc. Whenever someone demands me to bring a particular dish for them, I wake up a little early according to my shift timings and then I prepare the dish and take it along with me. I even know how to prepare Litti Chokha."
He is a big foodie and had given a thought to participating in the food based reality shows, "I am a big foodie and sometimes I also ask my Mom to take a 3 months cooking class from me by paying me fees (laughs). I wished that there was a Junior Master Chef at the time when I was young. I could have participated in it and won it too. I was even planning to take part in Master Chef India 2 but that couldn't happen because Sanskaar had begun then. I will take part in the upcoming season of Master Chef. I am looking forward to start my own restaurant in Mumbai or in Chennai where people have craze for North Indian food but can't find it" concludes Kartik.
We wish your dream comes true soon, Kartik!
