Ayurveda, that dates back to centuries has been creating a buzz globally. Taking spirit from this, Promenade, Aditya Park, Ameerpet has introduced an interesting spread with a unique theme of eat healthy and stay healthy. Venu Gopal, executive chef at the hotel along with his team has introduced this concept titled ‘Ayurvedic Food.’ “People have this impression that ayurvedic food is healthy and cannot be tasty. We want to change this perception. We used ayurvedic products to prepare this spread,” says Venu Gopal, adding, “we use iodised salt for our daily cooking. Here, we used rock salt that helps reduce cholesterol and helps keep your heart healthy. Instead of jams, we used honey mixed with ashwagandha lehyam, (a herbal jam made out of Indian ginseng or  winter cherry which is used as a medicine in Ayurveda), that helps in maintaining our strength through the day,” he explains.

While the main course was made with these replaced ingredients, the desserts are worth a mention – aloe vera jelly and mousse without sugar. Sugar was replaced with stevia plant extracts that is natural sweetener used in all the desserts. A lot sweeter than any sugar, but helps in detox, explained Venu.
