Love momos but conscious of weight gain? Here's a chance to experience the same heavenly joy of wallowing in momos, without worrying about counting the calories. The gluten-free Veg Momos here are wheat-free, made of jackfruit flour and root starches. They are suffused with healthy water chestnuts and spinach, filling your plate with pure health.
Their Tri-Grain Papdi Chaat made with kuttu, jowar and bajra flours satiate our appetite for some lip-smacking Indian snacks.
For a rich, meat treat, order the luscious Mutton Galouti on a mini kuttu bread. The bread base was a bit too dry and came in the way of relishing the melt-in-your-mouth galouti kebab. So we wolfed down the galouti without the bread.
Mango Cashew Tart is the prefect summer dessert you can think of in this balmy weather. It's a vegan cheesecake made with mango and sweetened with jaggery.
Fruit Payasam, with a generous serving of seasonal fruits along with coconut milk is another toothsome treat for your sweet tooth.
