The Pantry recently hosted ‘ The Indian Detox’ Dinner pop up menu in association with popular British Indian Chef – Mira Manek inspired from her first cookbook – Saffron Soul. This pop-up menu consisted of five courses meal with dishes inspired by Mira’s book – Saffron Soul. We dropped in to put it to test and discovered the delights of binging on healthy but scrumptious food.
We loved the Almond Butter, Fennel & chia seed Smoothie which was a decadent combination of almond butter, homemade coconut milk and dates. And the best part has to be that it was dairy free. The Tamarind and Quinoa Bhel made up on chilled watermelon was party in our mouths.
Next up was the Forbidden Rice and Coconut Bowl. This was made up of black rice, grilled peppers, yogurt, avocados, grated carrots and beetroot and was everything fresh and such a healthy addiction. Due credit has to be given to the staff here for their attentiveness all through the meal.
For dessert, Black Jamun Cheesecake was gluten, dairy and sugar-free and we couldn’t have enough of it. To conclude it all, the Chilli Cacao Chai made up ginger, red paprika and cacao ended our meal on a perfect note. We enjoyed a hearty nutritious light meal dinner that was still brimming with flavours and goodness. The pop up was Mira’s and The Pantry’s culinary finesse served in a platter and debunked the notion that Indian food has to be rich and calorie-laden.
