Carrot and Cashew Pulao

The balance  of sweet from onions, carrots and sugar, sour from lemon juice and mild heat from black  pepper is what I like the most.

Sizzling Brownie

This scrumptious dessert is among the most favoured orders in Restaurants. Topped with a generous dollop of Vanilla Ice Cream and a drizzle of thick chocolate sauce, it is no wonder this dessert is so well loved. Even if the vanilla ice cream is forgone, the sizzle of the chocolate sauce on the sizzling plate and the unique aroma can draw you in from tables away.
