After falling in love with the desi girl, seems like our vilayati babu Nick Jonas is gradually developing a taste for a lot of other Indian things, for example some of the nation’s patent delicacies. The Indian dish that works as a treat to the American singer’s taste buds is butter chicken. Yes, the soon to be son-in-law of the Chopras, besides being in love with PeeCee is in love with the creamy butter chicken.
Since it is the favourite dish of the groom-to-be, it has to be on the menu and reportedly it is. Moreover, the buzz has it that Priyanka Chopra always ensures to serve Nick butter chicken every time the two are in India. If the reports are to be believed, then while the couple was holidaying in Goa, Priyanka asked the chef to specially prepare the creamy dish for him. Well, we can see the cupid going all sweet stupid there.
