Bollywood songs already have us addicted to the super-max levels of fandom that there are, with our favourite stars' amazing dance moves. But what happens when Bollywood songs are centered around food?
Some of the lyrics are whacky, some are drool-worthy, others are suggestive of minute references, and even others are just plain, simple and awesome! This list, although closely resembling a restaurant’s menu – is definitely not so. Some songs are old, some are new – but the one thing in common is food, food, and more food!
We suggest keeping some snacks handy while reading this because by the end of this list you’re going to be very, very hungry.
'Kabhi Neem Neem, Kabhi Shehed Shehed' from 'Yuva'
Because if that isn’t what your love is, we don’t know what is! Sometimes as bitter as neem, as sweet as honey – everyone has someone or the other in their lives who is the definition of this, right?
'Samose Mein Aloo' from 'Mr. And Mrs. Khiladi'
"Jab takk rahega samose mein aloo, tera rahunga oh meri shaalu." I couldn’t get over the fact that there’s a song featuring a samosa. Have fun trying to digest the lyrics!
'Main Toh Raste Se Jaa Raha Tha, Bhelpuri Kha Raha Tha' from 'Coolie No. 1'
Govinda and his songs! If this song doesn’t perfectly capture your favourite pastime, we don’t know what does! Rasste se jaana, aur bhelpuri khaana – the ideal thing to do on a vella Sunday afternoon.
'Ande Ka Funda' from 'Jodi No. 1'
Aao sikhau, tumhein ande ka funda. Also, Sunday ho ya Monday roz khaao ande!
'Strawberry Aankhein' from 'Sapnay'
Move over blue and green eyes! Strawberry Aankhein are here to take over the world. Who says strawberry is just a pie or a dessert?!
From samosas to jalebis, strawberry to nimboos, Bollywood’s done it all – covered all the food list. They say, you need three things for a fulfilled life: good friends, good food and a good song, and Bollywood’s managed to put them all together!!
