Trio of republic chocolate

Getting into the hospitality industry was not a planned one. In fact, I wanted to be a doctor, just like my parents. I had even cleared my exams.
One of my friends was then pursuing hotel management. One day I visited his college to help him with one of his practical project.

There was an instant connection that I felt looking at everything they were doing. I was so inspired that I didn’t join medical college. Instead, I went ahead and joined a hotel management college. My interest blossomed when I found myself doing new and different things every day. I was always inclined towards things that call for a lot of creativity.

I used to stay with my grandparents during high school days and learnt the basics of cooking from my grandmother.  

Coming from a family of doctors, it was very difficult to convince my parents about why I am joining hotel management. Many weren’t aware of this profession those days. Having said that, he always told me to follow my heart.

It took me two years to convince them and today they are extremely proud of me.   

In my culinary journey, I look up to chef Diter. He is someone who believes in keeping it simple and I follow that in most of my cooking. 

One of the dishes that I regularly made was ‘Garadu’, a dish popular in my hometown, Indore. It is a root vegetable available during winters. It is a very easy recipe and one can enjoy it with ‘bhel’.  

I am a vegetarian and my favourite dish is ‘khichdi’. It is something that I am never bored of.

‘Khichdi’, green leafy vegetables and plain ‘dal-chawal’ are my comfort food. 

This Independence day I thought of creating something sweet and colourful. The ‘Trio of Republic Chocolate’ is rich, chocolaty and decadent. 

Fall in love with it from the first bite and celebrate the day with your loved ones.
