GO Gourmet..Fresh snacks to dine at home !!

Gourmet s a cultural idea associated with the culinary arts of fine food and drink,  which is characterized by refined, even elaborate preparations and presentations of aesthetically balanced meals of several contrasting, often quite rich courses. The term and its associated practices are usually used positively to describe people of refined taste and passion. Gourmet food tends to be served in smaller, more expensive, portions.

Being true to its meaning, Go Gourmet, is serving a tasty mix of  Salads & healthy food.It brings its own dash of cookery craziness to the table for those hungering for some scrumptious delicacies.

Gourmet restaurants are going a step further to cater to customers—by giving them the option to dine at home. Delivery services are quick and try to reach us on time as its essential that the packaging retain the freshness and quality of the chef-driven contents.

Parcel packaging is well planned showcasing the ingredients and calories intake. We placed an order for:

1) Falafel Wrap – It was so well stuffed , wholesome Falafel, hummus & veggies in a multi grained tortilla. It tasted well,but lil on spicy end
2) Classic Egg Sandwich – It was a classic combo of egg, whole wheat bread, flavored well with mustard and herbs. Tasted good.
3) BBQ Chicken Wrap – It was really good. It was flavoured Chicken breast piece stuffed in multi grain tortilla. chicken was very juicy and well spiced.
4) Shikanji – as usual they serve beverages with original content. Best in taste
5) Pom Lemonade – Similarly with this. Tasted perfect like fresh juice.

And pictures say it all 🙂

Don’t Die with Dieting….instead try DIET KITCHEN !!

Blogging is about giving more than it is about getting.

Diet Kitchen as the name suggests, serves the healthy and nutritious food, which is best of their kind. It’s an outlet in Gurgaon whose website display all the calorie and fat content, so the customer can carefully choose what they want to consume.

Generally, when we are hungry we crave for junk food like pizza, pasta, burgers, but never thought all this can be prepared and eaten in healthy way too!! They make nutritionally balanced meals, calculated to the core, which are just perfect for every person.

We recently got to order few food items from Diet Kitchen & everything was lip smacking.

Let me first say that food was delivered on time and was still hot (5/5). So in home deliveries this is first requirement which is superbly fulfilled by Diet Kitchen Team. Wraps, Pizza and Pasta were packaged and sealed nicely with no leakage. It was easy to handle and open. The packaging (5/5) impressed me as everything was nicely placed in the box, which had some paper napkins, sauces and disposable cutlery.

The food ordering process is straight forward and simple.  As a vegetarian i have become accustomed to a limited choice but this is certainly not the case with the Diet Kitchen. You can choose from their vast choice of sandwiches/burgers/pasta/pizza and many more meal options according to your own dietary requirements and preferences. They serve both Veg and Non veg options.

I shared my order with my parents. Generally, we don’t eat outside or ready meals, so i was skeptical about how good the food would taste, i feared they my parents will not like it, but was soooo happy when my father said I just loved the Pizza. Everything were delicious & lip smacking!!

We ordered the Potato Gainer Wrap, features a stuffed portion of Potatoes, green chilli, capsicum,onion ,sauces, wrapped with a hexagonal fold inside a flour tortilla and grilled. It was lip smacking & healthy too. There’s nothing new here in the way of ingredients but there’s some novelty in the combination. Next we tried Grilled Paneer Soya Veg pizza, which had no cheese and a very thin base crust. It was loaded with paneer, soya chunks & all gourmet exotic vegetables like bell pepper, onion, capsicum & other veggies. Cheese missing went unnoticed as it was scrumptious. Penne Mushroom Mix Sauce Pasta” served with 2 small brown breads. It was full of wheat pasta and mushrooms. It was too yummy & delicious. None of the ingredients got overwhelmed by the others.

As per the quality and quantity of food (serves2), I think the prices are justified. This place is healthy destination for all food lovers, who can eat whatever they want in a healthy way. Highly Recommended!!

Sooji Bread Style..healthy Breakfast !!

Here i am with the quick, simple and yet healthy breakfast recipe.As we all know Sooji is a balanced food. Its also called Rava, like Rava Idli/dosa. It gives great energy, and is vital for  important body functions. Sooji Is also good for diabetic people or those who wish to lose weight, since sooji or semolina is made from durum wheat (hard variety) and not the usual soft wheat which is used in bread making.Sooji is often used for making pastas, porridge or upma.Its counted in Healthy staple foods, but when taken in limited amount.

Today we will discuss Sooji Bread recipe.Its my Mother-inlaw’s recipe and she taught me to cook it.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  1. Bread
  2. 1 cup Sooji/ Rava
  3. 1/2 cup Milk (basically Malai)
  4. 1/4 cup finely chopped Capsicum
  5. 1 large Onion, finely chopped
  6. 1 large Tomato, finely chopped
  7. 1 Green Chilly, finely chopped
  8. 1/4 cup finely chopped Coriander Leaves
  9. 1 teaspoon Oil, for shallow frying
  10. Salt to Taste
  11. 1/4 tbsp Black Pepper

Method/Direction:

  1. Take sooji , 1/2 cup milk & salt (as per taste) in a bowl.
  2. Mix well using spoon by gradually adding water until batter has thick yet equal consistency
  3. Keep it asidehttps://wordpress.com/post/creativeme1807.wordpress.com/855 for next 15 mins.
  4. Now again stir the batter after 15mins, and add onion, capsicum, tomato, green chillies, coriander leaves in the batter. (if your batter gets very milky, add malai or yoghurt to get back the consistency)
  5. Mix well and again check for consistency. (Rava/Sooji absorbs water as time goes by and batter becomes thick) If required, add extra water or 1-2 tbsp milk and mix well to make sure that it has equal consistency.
  6. Heat non-stick tawa over medium flame. Add few drops of oil on the surface of tawa and spread it evenly using halved potato. This process helps the batter to easily spread over tawa.
  7. Now take a bread piece, spread this batter on one side of it. Place the bread on tawa now.
  8. Drizzle 1-teaspoon oil around the edge.Tawa should be on medium flame.
  9. Cook until color of bread with batter changes from white to off-white and turns light brown for approx. 1-2 minutes.
  10. Now flip it gently and cook another side of the bread. If you want, you can apply batter on other side of bread also, after placing the first side on tawa. Cook it properly then.
