Bollywood and its glitterati are no strangers to the delectable delicacies of the Khan kitchen. In fact, most even have their special demands when they are hosted by the Khans. Known for their delicious chicken and mutton biryani, the annual Eid party sees celebrities gorging on the food coming from the food palette of the Khan house. As Khan says, Sushmita Sen is a huge fan of these biryanis as well as the shammi kebabs. For Rekha, the food and atmosphere of the Khan home is enough to make her comfortable…as is the case with Krishna Kapoor, another biryani lover.
