Desserts Trail and Masterclass by Diabetic Food Trail

Do we love desserts? Absolutely, we mean who doesn’t right? Every once in awhile people like to indulge themselves in a fancy dessert! Calories are the main reasons why people, especially diabetics hesitate to savour desserts. To tackle this, Semora in association with Britannia NutriChoice Essential have come up with The Diabetic Food Trails which introduces diabetic friendly dishes. We were invited to a two-day event, Healthy Desserts Trail and Masterclass.

Day 1: Healthy Desserts Trail is the one we all wish for. Imagine having desserts upon desserts for lunch! And that’s exactly what we did. A restaurant trail which began at Fava and ended at Ritz Carlton had a huge set of desserts for us to try.

Fava being the first restaurant of the crawl plated Fresh Ricotta and Red Grape Timbale with NutriChoice Essentials Grain Cookies along with Sugar-free Callebaut Belgian Dark Chocolate Sorbet with Cut Fresh Fruits.


Caperberry went overload with chocolate with Sugar-free Belgian Chocolate Decadence with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookies and fresh with Sugar-free Pannacotta with Orange compote, Vanilla sauce, and crunchy Tuile. Just two restaurants done and we nearly had lost our appetite for desserts. Decadence was absolute divine!


Smally’s Resto Cafe had curated No Bake Muesli Cheesecake with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookies and Twisted Ragi Choco Cake with NutriChoice Essentials Ragi Cookies.


Ritz Carlton came up with Apple Plum Strudel, Apricot Cranberry Cupcakes with NutriChoice Essentials Oats Cookies and Blueberry Mint Parfait with NutriChoice Essential Oats Cookies. Or as we’d like to call, Sunshine and Desserts!

Day 2: On the occasion of World Diabetic Day, a masterclass session was in place to learn few diabetic friendly and easy to prepare recipes. After a scrumptious desserts lunch day before, we had Chef Irfan Pabaney from Sassy Spoon, Chef John from Smally’s and Head Chef from Anjappar to demonstrate specially curated recipes.


Three cheers to Seema Pinto and the team for organizing an informative and healthy event!

Experience 7 course meal at SAMAROH!

‘Samaroh’ being a pure vegetarian restaurant, serves authentic north Indian cuisine. Food is served in specially designed brass (Kansa) dishes, which adds up on to the nutritional value of it. Pink and yellow themed interiors with bright lights, fancy hanging lamps, royal touch on the walls, comfortable pink-yellow wooden fabric sofas, make up the ambiance of Samaroh.

The seven-course meal kick-started with Moti Choor Ladoo. This will be our all time favorite recipe. Every spoon of Moti Choor was excellent in terms of sweetness.

Happiness is a tray full of wafers. Yes, up next was a tray filled with yummy wafers. Not to forget the accompaniments such as salad, pickle, Tamarind chutney, and Chili-Pudina chutney. The happy helpers’ refilled and refilled the tray, we just kept munching on them.

Tamatari Shorba, soup made of tomatoes, was over-tangy and barely had any flavors. It was definitely on a disappointing note, but the relishing flavors of Aam Panna made it up!

Tongue tickling Sev Batata Puri and Pani Puri were simply great. A four-part platter with Sandwich Dhokla, Tandoori Apple, Kathi Roll and Peeli Sarson Ka Paneer Tikka were other appetizers on the menu. We enjoyed feasting on these starters.

After the quick bites, it was time for the Rich Thali, the big picture. The gravy section had Dal Makhani, Paneer Tikka Masala, Videshi Sabzi Desi Tadka, Samaroh Kofta, Channa Palak Sarson, Dal Pakwan and Palak Raitha. Under the Roti section, we got to try various rotis’ like Makki ki Roti, Phulka, and Tandoor Roti. Not to forget the tasty and filling Tawa Pulao with raitha, Curd Rice, and Steamed Rice.

All gravies were distinctive in terms of taste, color and texture. Tender and soft Cottage cheese cubes made in-house added on to the quality of the food.

No meal is complete without desserts, and Samaroh had Kesar Pista Shrikand, Rabdi Malpua, Kulfi, Akhrot Halwa and Indian Pan. Being a lover of sweets, I enjoyed every bite of it.

A perfect place to spend some time with family. Overall, we had a wonderful experience of Veg Indian cuisine. Thank you, Little App and team Samaroh  for having us! This is one of the best places for North Indian Thali any day.

Note: Jain food is also served on request.

Cost: 1,200 for two people (approx.)
