On a diet but craving curd rice or looking for a guilt-free dine-out experience when on a keto plan? There's a new restaurant in the city where you can gorge on hearty biryani, mop up fish curry with naan and end the meal with a bowl of curd rice without worrying about calories. There’s also a nutty chocolate mousse that will satiate your sugar cravings.
Dr Paramesh Shamanna, 51, a diabetes specialist, and his gynaecologist wife Dr Vijayalakshmi experimented with a number of diets before they finally found the keto diet, which changed their lives for good. “So much so, that we began recommending the diet to our patients,” says Shamanna. While the couple helped keto-followers with recipes and cooking demos, they realised eating out was still not an option.
With this thought, they launched Keto Kitchen four months ago. Besides being a dine-in, the restaurant also supplies keto meals on subscription through their portal Diet Delite.
The extensive menu boasts of diet-friendly French classics, South Indian specialities and Chinese options. “All sauces are made in-house with no sugar, and desserts are made using stevia. The biryani and curd rice are made using cauliflower rice and the naan is made out of coconut flour,” says Chef Sundaram of Keto Kitchen. With a zero-calorie chocolate mousse on the menu, we are sold already.
