During summers, eating too much is out of the question. So salads and juices fit into the diet perfectly. But if you wish to make the platter a little more interesting, you can opt for a variety of dips to go with. Also, a simple yet filling dessert like a waffle by the side will be a wow option to try.
With the Speedy Chef dip and Waffle Maker from Tupperwear, I am having fun this season.
While the festive season is officially over for now, the fun continues. On a weekend, you would get those cravings to eat out and re-live those recent holiday memories with friends and family. But at the same time, you would not wish to pile on fat unnecessarily, having got back to your usual routine. The challenge is to find a mid path?

Here’s how to look wow with them effortlessly:
1# Bow clip- If you have to bank on a single hair accessory to change your look, vouch for a bow clip.
DIY: Push your hair over to one shoulder and simply clip on this hair accessory on the other side, to pretty up your side-profile and how.
2# Bobbing pin – These basic hair pins have gone a notch higher now with fashion colours and metallic hues.
DIY: For a party look, simply make a deep side parting and clip on a few golden bobbing pins in a row to nail this chic, trendy look. It flatters every face shape with a ‘cute girl’ feel.
3# Floral hair band- will help to rope in the pretty and the boho-chic elements together.
DIY: Wear a chain of rosettes like a tiara or a band around your head. Leave the rest of your hair open, a bit scrunched and messy with a subtle middle parting.
#1 As far as the exotic recipes are concerned, they are from the legendary Chef Imtiaz Qureshi with a modern presentation by the sous chefs.
#2 While you are bound to get spoilt for choice, some of the ‘must-try’ dishes from the menu are –
Kakori Kabab – the skewers of minced lamb are grilled on charcoal embers and will simply melt in your mouth.
Khameeri roti – is soft bread cooked in clay oven and topped with exotic saffron.
Safed murgh supreme – has strips of tender chicken tossed up in mild spiced cream and yellow chili gravy.
Jalebi pearls as the name suggests, the caviar of jalebi are worth savouring with royal rabri by the side.
#3 The view of Marine Drive is completely breath-taking! You would want to sit by the huge glass windows overlooking the Arabian Sea and get mesmerized.
#4 While the décor is classy, the ambiance is warm and welcoming.
#5 It is a place ideal for a traditional, sit-down family buffet but you can also enjoy some couple time or ‘me-time’ there as well.
