A hot favourite during Uttarayan or Sankranti, Khasta Rewari are small flaky slices of til and sugar. Til and sugar are cooked together, to form thin slices of rewari, this is again coated with til or sesame to give the perfect look. Indulge in this sugary delight anytime.

I totally enjoyed the whole Nutrichoice Essentials Diabetic Master class … Here is wat i learnt from Dr. Wasim, Seema Pinto and Chef Vamsi & Chef Teuku
Being a north Indian i was eagerly waiting for vegeterian dishes Today i came to know a fact that ghee is a fat burner, if used in small quantities. If we want to come out of diabetes we have to eat smaller portions of food as well exercise regularly mainly walking helps us to control sugar level in blood … We can also use Black Salt as much as possible.. ..Use millets in ur diet .. cook recipes ranging from appetisers, entrees and desserts without use of sugar and also have food when you feel hungry  again in small portions. Just to kill the appetite. says Seema Pinto
Foods high in chromium can improve GTF glucose tolerance factor in your body and naturally balance out blood glucose levels. Broccoli, raw cheese, green beans and grass-fed beef are all high in chromium, however broccoli has the highest amounts by far and  Sprinkling herbs like cinnamon, turmeric, and parsley on your food may also help balance blood sugar levels. says Dr.Wasim…..
Asian Lettuce Cup, Tuna Salad Wraps, Baked assorted Lentil stew casserole, pan seared sea bass, Pecan, Red banana and Nutri choice essentials oats biscuit pudding were the dishes made by Chef Vamsi & Chef Teuku
I totally loved the taste of  Baked assorted Lentil stew casserole…


Dessert… Pecan, Red banana and Nutri choice essentials oats biscuit pudding I made for veg pudding without egg with chef vamsi….
