Ruchi Thali for Business Class of Singapore Airlines at Shangri-La, Bangalore


Got an invite for the “Ruchi Thali Event” of Singapore Airlines, where the recipes are curated by Chef. Sanjeev Kapoor at Hotel Shangri-La, Bangalore around 11:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m.

I was on time for the event, and never ever thought Chef. Sanjeev Kapoor, would be there. I was stunned to see him (India’s top chef), had a small chat with him and whoever comes out without selfie today – so had a selfie and a picture with him. I would say this is one of the happiest days in my lifetime.
