You, me, we all scream for ghar ka khana. Be it simple dal-rice or roti with sabji, there is really no match for a wholesome platter cooked by our darling mothers. When the meal is served in a thali, it only gets more special. We don’t know about you but Genelia Deshmukh is a fan of such homemade lunches. On Instagram stories, she shared a video of her sons relishing their lunch at home. They can be seen sitting at a table with a thali kept in front of them. The lunch platter included a couple of rotis, sabji, a bowl of yellow daal, and what appeared to be pakodas and chana sabji. “Just a normal day eating with these two and life feels amazing,” she wrote as the caption.
