India Today - - COVER STORY - KETO KITCHEN AT 420, 4th Cross Rd, 2nd Block, Kalyan Na­gar TEL 43008152 PRICE `800 on­wards for two WEB­SITE di­et­delite.in

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.
