Diabetes Dessert Trail – World Diabetes Day 2016

As every one of my followers knew that I collect Diabetic recipes for my diabetic hubby, was eagerly and when it comes to variety of diabetic desserts, it was much excited.

The Diabetic Food Trail is all set, once again, to offer Diabetics, Pre-Diabetics and Health conscious individuals, a wonderful culinary experience at over 200 restaurants across Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore & Pune. The Diabetic Food Trail is presented by Britannia Nutrichoice Essentials in association with Biocon, the largest Indian Insulins Company. Britannia and Biocon have once again partnered with DFT, this year along with Fitternity.com, Health & Nutrition and Burrp! By extending their support, Britannia Nutrichoice

The Diabetic Food Trail was founded by Seema Pinto and Manoj Pinto and is presented by Semora Entertainment Works. Seema Pinto, who is a diabetic, is very passionate about the Diabetic Food Trail, and hopes that in the years to come, the Diabetic Food Trail is not restricted to just 3 weeks in a year. Her vision is to see that all the restaurants will serve a healthy and diabetic friendly menu as part of the regular menu, thereby giving people a choice to eat healthy, throughout the year.

As we all knew that one in every 10 people have diabetic, this diabetic awareness program is to show that Diabetic is not a disease that needs medicine, but it’s about the food management – well-management diet and fitness program.

The Diabetic Dessert Trail started from

  • FAVA restaurant, where we had 2 desserts –
        o Fresh Ricotta and Red Grape Timbale with NutriChoice Essentials 5 Grain Cookie crumble  and organic honey
      o Sugar-free Callebaut Belgian Dark Chocolate Sorbet with Cut Fresh Fruits
  • CAPERBERRY restaurant – 2 desserts –
        o Sugar-free Belgian Chocolate Decadence with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookie Crumble and fresh Berries (Eggless)
      o Pannacotta (eggless and sugar free) with Orange compote, Vanilla sauce and crunchy Tuile


          o No Bake Muesli Cheesecake with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookies
        o Twisted Ragi Choco Cake with NutriChoice Essentials Ragi Cookies



      o Apple Plum Strudel


o Apricot Cranberry Cup Cakes with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookies
o Blueberry Mint Parfait with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookies
Each and every dessert was yummy, delicious, and heavenly with low calories and was infused with natural sugar may be from the fruits or the dark chocolate.

Also I could hear all your mind voices; yeah the recipes will be updated one by one as we got to see few of the desserts demonstrated by the chef who curated the menu. Stay tuned with us.

After the dessert trail followed the fitness camp by fitternity.com, we headed to Tribe Fitness at Indira Nagar, Bangalore. Fitternity.com which was founded by Neha Motwani, says that “Eatig right and Working out” is the way to lead a healthy life. There we had a very informative session with their coach, actually most of them followed the exercises and taught by the coach. But I could never follow, which realized me that I am not fit. So most of us have thought that being lean is what being fit, but it’s absolutely wrong being fit means that your body is flexibe. It was very fun and two our foodie friends made us stunned with their head strands.

Fine American Whiskeys & Tapas @ Fava Restaurant, UB City, Bangalore


May 26th, got invited for a “Fine Whiskeys and Tapas” event organized at Fava Restaurant, UB City, Bangalore.

About the event: The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS), in association with Chef Abijit Saha hosted an evening of Fine American Whiskey paired with specially curated Tapas at Fava Restaurant, UB City, Vittal Mallya Road, Bangalore. Beam Suntory, the third largest spirits company in the world, showcased some of their exquisite brands from their American Whiskey portfolio at the event featuring Jim Beam White, Jim Beam Black and Maker’s Mark.

The evening was hosted by India American Whiskey Ambassador – Shatbhi Basu where she offered an interactive session to grasp the nuances of American Whiskey. This unorthodox style of sipping the whiskey in fun formats and paired with Chef Saha’s signature cuisine took the edge of the usual seriousness that surrounds whiskey tasting.

According to Shatbhi Basu, India American Whiskey Ambassador, “It feels so good to share my love of American whiskies. They have such incredible flavors & nuances, and each one of the whiskeys we are showcasing has its own unique character.”

About food: This was my first experience to the fava restaurant and the food curated by Chef. Abijit Saha was heavenly. We all enjoyed each and every bite of the food, the drinks was also too good and unbeatable. But grabed loads of information about the drinks for the first time.

Chef’s Basket with Something Cooking Event


Last Saturday got to attend a cook-off event hosted by Chef’s Basket with Something’s Cooking. We were on time to the event – the studio – something cooking looks stunning with attractive colors over the wall, and their interiors are mind blowing. I was like admiring the studio, well-spaced with beautifully set modular kitchen cabinets and too many ultra-modern equipments.

About Chef’s Basket: Chef’s Basket believe in the art of cooking and also they believe that with a little help anybody can cook. This resulted in their products – Noodles and Pasta with most authentic recipes from around the world. They say that their food is natural with no artificial preservatives or added colour. For more details about Chef’s Basket and their products, check out: http://chefsbasket.com/.

Coming to the event – The event was hosted by Chef’s Basket, not only me few of my foodie friends were also invited for the event. We had a lovely evening, first of all we were given a brief section about story of chef’s basket and their products. Secondly, we were introduced to the cook-off section, we were divided to team and there was totally 8 teams with 3 to 4 participants. I was with the second team and it’s me, Mahima Koteshwar, Bijan Mishra and my daughter – Hiranmayi who joined the hands for the event.

We were asked to cook 2 varieties of chef’s Basket products – cooking of the first dish was purely based on their way, which we get to know from the packets and it was KHOW SUEY Noodles – Spicy creamy noodles from Burma and Northern Thailand. And the second one was CHEESY ALFREDO Pasta – here was the twist, we wanted to make use of the ingredients in the packet but in unique way. We have cooked the pasta by following their procedure and as a twist, we halved capsicum, de-seed it and then cooked the capsicum in olive oil for a while, in all the sides. Then filled the capsicum with pasta, topped it with little shredded cheese and served hot.

After all the cook-off, there was a product launching section – yeah, they have launched their Dinner Box and Tiramisu.


Also we got a gift hamper with four of the Chef’s Basket product. Thanks a lot for Naveen, Sumangala (Chef’s Basket) for the invite and Something’s cooking (studio) for making it possible.
