Apart from being a legendry cricketer, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar is also a big foodie. His obsession for different delicacies is very apparent from the master’s social media updates.

In a television interview, Team India’s former all-rounder Irfan Pathan revealed about Sachin’s secret love for Biryani.

“During the 2007 India-Australia series, we were playing a match in Baroda, and Ammi prepared her signature biryani for the team. Twenty-five members of the Indian team including Sachin, Harbhajan Singh and all the support staff visited my house and relished her biryani on that day,” said Irfan.

“We had a match on the next day. However, the match was finished earlier. To my utter surprise, Sachin called me and expressed his desire to eat the same biryani the next day too. Sachin told me to bring the same stale biryani. When I suggested Sachin to prepare fresh biryani for him, he told me that the stale biryani will be more delicious. He said that biryani always tastes better the day after it is made. Unfortunately, there was no biryani left from the previous day. But Ammi was more than happy to prepare it for Sachin all over again,” he added.

During Irfan’s birthday, Sachin and Bhajji often demands biryani from the former all-rounder.
