Spicy Indian Fare For Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova Loves DosaiIndian cuisine has long been the no.1 food option of touring tennis pros like Maria Sharapova. So much so that London’s Wimbledon area, where a fair section of the players stay for the duration of the championships, has a wide smattering of restaurants offering — kurmas and butter masalas. American young gun Sloane Stephens, seeded 17 in the women’s draw, pointed at the pricey neighborhood diner Rajdoot as her top pick.

“Normally, I have chicken tikka masala, but the last two nights I’ve had chicken kurma. It’s spicy, and really good. I eat there every night,” she said.

Maria Sharapova says, she loves Indian dosai as well.
When she was in New Delhi in  November 20 11:  She didn’t forget to talk of the dosai (pancake made from the batter of rice and black lentils).
“I arrived last night and asked the chef what should I try of the Indian food. I had a dosa which tasted
really nice. I wanted to have this great Indian experience. There is so much energy in the city, I have been
in some quiet areas recently, resting. I really like the culture and people. You all have been really
welcoming.”  Sharapova promised to return to India soon and visit the Taj Mahal.
