Actor Mukesh, who is also an LDF candidate in the Kollam constituency, has unique food habits, which he claims helps him be active and energetic throughout the day. More than the breakfast dishes or rice, he likes eating the curries that accompany them. His day begins with a refreshing glass of unsweetened black coffee. He eats two idlis or dosas for breakfast. He wouldn’t drink tea or coffee with breakfast.
But, Mukesh insists on having a boiled duck’s egg. He likes having rice for lunch, which he eats in a minimal portion. He would eat dishes like thoran (vegetable stir fry), mezhukkupuratty and fish curry before having rice by mixing it with rasam or buttermilk.
Mukesh enjoys local fish curry that is cooked with tamarind in it. He admits he loves having a bit more rice if he gets that curry. He, however, tries to avoid rice for dinner. Mukesh eats fish dishes that are baked without adding oil. Fish roe is his favourite item. No matter how late or busy he is, Mukesh eats his dinner only at home.
