4)Khasta Rewri(Gur)


Rewri is coin shaped made of sesame, sugar or jaggery and comes in different flavors like elaichi (cardamom), gulab (rose) and kevda (screw pine essence).
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.
Enjoy them with a cup of hot chai and the company of your friends.

  1. Dana garam masala

Like any Indian spice blend, each garam masala is different…..I use garam masala taught by my grand mom..I got a courier from PlaceofOrigin.in just with excitement opened and got this RANA Garam Masala ..I never used any other spices except i make it from home.. I just want to try it as it is written on the cover that this is free from iron and lead particles .. retains essential and volatile oils, pre cleaned and sundried, Laboratory tested, All pure and natural ingredients, No heat generated while processing and its guaranteed purity ….
The  garam masala ingredients include Chilli, cinnamon, shahi jeera, pepper, cloves, pennel, ginger, bay leaf , star anise, coriander , cardomam, nutmeg and condiments of spieces

The garam masala has very unique taste. This is not much powered which gives a mild taste of all ingredients ..This has a unique taste unlike our normal Indian garam masalas. This can be put in almost all vegetables we make. Tastes great in Pulav’s and different rice menus. I advise users to use a very small amount to get the very subtle taste of this garam masala . The flavours of this spice mix bought back the memories of the old days. Please keep more such spices coming so that we enjoying cooking with it.


The quality is good and its  affordable and always have the right balance of spices and herbs Hygienically processed and tightly  packed the world’s finest products from DANA… Manufactured under the most hygienic conditions consistently to add that perfect, tantalizing and mouthwatering taste to your food
I thought it would be a lot more spicy or hot. Mild but it’s good for general cooking.
This spice is JUST what I needed to make my food even better!
I make a lot of dishes that call for Masala and I’m happy to have it.

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….
