Wonderchef event in Pune

Driving down to Pune today and it will be lovely drive as the rains have washed all the greenery clean to a sparkle!



The Wonderchef event begins at 9.30 am at S.M.Joshi Auditorium, Near Patrakar Bhavan, Ganjve Chowk , Navi Peth, Pune – 411 030. It’s all about healthy cooking using top of the line cookware and bakeware. You can look forward to chocolate cake, dosa, pan pizza and chicken dishes.


Healthy cooking is a real passion with me. I have not only answered numerous queries about how everyday cooking can be made simpler and healthier, but I have also enjoyed compiling recipe books on this topic. There are more on the anvil now and as time goes by, you will have access to newer techniques of simpler cooking.


That is my mantra, really. To make the process of cooking as simple as possible so that when one reads the recipe it motivates the reader to try it out….with confidence and with the feeling that “I can do it”. Every step brings one to success or failure. And success is only another definition of failing but forward every time. If you do not get a good result from the recipe the first time around, try again…and again…till you are satisfied.


I will give you the simplest of the recipes today and the weekend is the best time to try them out.

Yesterday was probably a day that I will remember for a long long time. The formal launch of The Yellow Chilli in Ahmedabad. It is likely that I underestimated the love for food that Amdavadis nurture! I was overwhelmed by the media’s enthusiasm in covering the Press Conference yesterday afternoon. I was impressed by the way my team had things working like clock work all through the day. I am sure there were many a tense moment behind the scenes, the creases smoothened out by Rajeev Matta (COO), Saurabh Saxena and Jahid Inamdar. Thanks all and kudos to you. I am sure there were around seventy media persons who addressed their queries and answering them took more than a couple of hours! A short rest period and then it was time for the evening party which was graced by eminent personalities of Ahmedabad. I had a chance to have extensive conversations with Mr Vimal Ambani, IG, DGP and Commissioner Police, Mr Chonas of Havmor, representatives from Zydus, and columnist Esther David.
The food? Well, we had the tables really spread out! Most of the menu items were presented and the sweet tooth of Ahmedabad was truly and magnificently pampered with Chocolate cake, Mango cake, Gulab-e- Gulkand, Fruit jelly, Badam Halwa.

As visions of such great desserts come before you, let me share some more desserts here.

Mango souffle, Chocolate Mousse, Very low fat brownies.

Off now for the live demonstrations at The Kitchen Show (I am in Bengaluru!)…

Wonderchef show in Gurgaon on April 15

Am in Delhi today and tomorrow at Gurgaon – for a Wonderchef Demo. The time is 11.30 am and venue: Vipul Green Club, Sohna Road, Opp South City 2, Gurgaon.

What will be I demonstrating? Some chicken, some dessert, some pizza…I will let the suspense remain! Right now, feeling that the moist air of so-hot Mumbai is better than the dry atmosphere of Delhi! Delhi thrives in a little world of its own. When it comes to food, the cuisine is fit for royalty as delicacies are served to prime ministers, presidents and dignitaries. Drop in at any Indian restaurant and a mind boggling array of Mughlai rich sauces, butter-based curries, ginger-flavoured succulently roasted meats will be available. Not to forgo is the rose petal strewn kulfi, which is creamy and melt-in-the-mouth. Old Delhi is a wandering gourmet’s delight as snacks like chana bhatura, stuffed kulchas and fruit chaats not only tingle the palate but also satisfy hunger pangs admirably well.

I do not know if I will have the time to go and have these in this trip but as the mouth waters thinking about the Dilli delights I will share some recipes with the same flavour.

Meantime, I have to get back to the wedding functions that we are here to attend.

Happy Cooking
