BAKEOLOGY Thane Mumbai Food Review & Photography : Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Dessert Feast

The joy of reviewing HEALTHY YUMMY Desserts is here! Pleased to meet Dr. Kasturi, dentist + nutritionist homemaker who has been experimenting in her kitchen with ingredients such as jowar, bajra, ragi as her dessert-base and jaggery, dates, honey as her sweeteners for binge-worthy desserts minus the guilt. Imagine having a cake with none of that heavy feeling or gorging on nutella that is made of 100% roasted hazelnuts with honey! 

She has a lovely menu full of innovative and exclusive desserts and she is continuously experimenting to add new goodies. She can be reached to create personalized desserts as well as hampers for special occasions and delivers all over Mumbai. Recently, my sister and I got an exclusive invite from her to review her Diwali goodie bag and boy, was it a feast! 

Remember, her strict policy is of NOT using any maida, butter, sugar, cream and all her goodies are sugar-free + gluten-free. Yet the taste is superb, we did not feel even for a moment that we were miss…

Punjab Grill Kala Ghoda : Delicious Diaries Enjoying Royal Vegetarian Punjabi Feast

Punjab Grill needs no introduction, this outlet is also superlative in every aspect in traditional Punjab Grill way. Best Punjabi food, top-notch hospitality from beginning to end, elegant ambiance, traditional Punjabi folk music to give company, wide range of drinks and a menu encompassing hundreds of options for both veggies and non-veggies. 
Even the chutneys, dips and fryums provided at the beginning of the meal is memorable. Special word of appreciation for how nothing is overly dipping in oil/butter (except the dishes that should be) and the main course especially has the exact same taste as provided lovingly by grandmas in any Punjabi kitchen. Perfect representation of ghar ka swaad.

Tried, loved and recommend-
White Wine Sangria (so refreshing) Punjabi Krantt (Vodka + Lime + Orange + Spices, perfect for summer) Rola Cola Mojito (the fizzy drink of my choice for these summer afternoons) Shikanji (brought back memories of homemade shikanji from childhood)
Tandoori Broccoli (can …
