Sumeru Launches Desi Gourmet Dishes Curated by Indian Michelin Star Chef Alfred Prasad
Sumeru is a household name in Frozen foods and we have always found them a good alternative to present those French fries, cheese balls, vegetable nuggets that my daughter so loved, at home. Sumeru in the quest for healthy alternatives have brought in 14 times Indian Michelin Star Chef Alfred Prasad to curate gourmet dishes that is mouth watering and lip smacking. The products were launched in a grand event at Crowne Plaza with Peepul Capital, Sumeru Team and Chef Alfred Prasad. It was a well-planned event and we had the opportunity to taste the dishes and true to all the efforts, the vegetarian dishes – Super millet kichadi and Coromandel Shahi Paneer (based on Andhra chili chicken, chicken replaced with Paneer) were awesome. The other non-vegetarian dishes include Coromandel Roast chicken and Signature pepper chicken.
Okay, let us be honest. McCain products are ready to be deep fried food items available in freezers in most of the super markets. Deep fried? Yes. So what? I am getting allergic to the fact that the moment ‘deep fried’ is mentioned I can hear the awws and ohhhs and question marks over the eligibility of the item to be consumed. Let us get this straight. We are consuming deep fried food as part of meals, when we eat out, and also when we socialize in various forms. Ask nutritionists and they will tell you fat is not totally bad. It is the temptation to eat more which creates trouble. Now with so many options for healthy deep frying with olive oil and various reports about the goodness of gingelly oil, groundnut oil, indulgence once in a while is not a crime. This is for the kids and people without diseases that abhor deep fried goodness.
