The most searched recipes on Google were cake, samosa, jalebi, momos, dhokla, panipuri, dosa, paneer and chocolate cake.



Google on Friday revealed that recipe-related searches hit a new record high in India during April as people stayed home and aimed to break the monotony in the kitchen.


While 'dalgona coffee recipe at home' spiked 5,000 per cent, searches for 'chicken momo recipe' grew 4,350 per cent and searches for "mango icecream recipe" saw 3,250 per cent rise.


According to the company, the most searched recipes on Google were cake, samosa, jalebi, momos, dhokla, panipuri, dosa, paneer and chocolate cake.


The report also showed that coronavirus (COVID-19) was the third most searched topic in India during April (behind film and meaning - both consistently highly searched topics in the country).


Search interest for coronavirus grew more than 10 per cent over April — 3,000 per cent from January when the topic first began trending.


The state with the highest search interest over April is Meghalaya, followed by Tripura and Goa.
