1. I workout really hard to maintain my weight but I cannot control my passion for food. I like eating delicious and yummy food from outside at least 3 times a week.
2. Over the years, I have realized that food cannot be a compromise.  Even if it is low calorie, the   taste   has to be perfect.

I did try Pumpkin Pav (Dabeli) and it was delicious!

If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Definitely it would be PANI PURI.

Rice bran oil and olive oil

Your take on:
Keto diets – I surely think it is difficult to sustain an entire lifetime with this diet. Moreover, once you stop it, the weight jumps back.

Intermittent fasting – Effective and quite good to resort to this fasting. It comes with a scientific backing and has good results.

Fusion food cuisine – This cuisine gives a good twist to a particular cuisine and if made well can be really a hit.  I do agree that some restaurants have really mastered it.

Which superfoods have impressed you the most?
Nuts are my absolute favourite. They taste good, besides which they are loaded with nutrients and satiate your hunger pangs.
What are your favourites?
Indian street food – Vada Pav

Indian dessert – Phirni

Hidden gem restaurant of your city (and why) – Soma, Grand Hyatt which has a set menu which   is delicious.
Another one which shut down recently was Jewel of India. One of my personal favourites and the food was as good as it tasted years ago.

Over-rated Indian restaurant in your city (and why) – Sanchos and
Sante Spa.

The restaurant you keep going back to - Yauatcha, Papaya, Bayroute and Yazu.

How do you detox your body after an overdose of eating out?
I opt for a healthy diet which consists of Dalia Khichdi or a salad.

Any health foods you swear by?
Egg is my go to! It is full of important proteins and nutrients and can be made tasty at the same time. It’s an all-time favourite!
