Healthy is the Plate that Serves Green- The New Indian Express

These days all moms are so much concerned about their kids having right kind of nutritional meal that they avoid too much of fat, sweets etc. in their diet at home. The moms work under pressure all the time as their kids fuss over the healthy food and always prefer junk food over the greens.
In my blog www.monishgujral.com which won the global best blog in the World Gourmand Jury Choice Award this year, I try to write the recipes which I call Go Green with over-pressurised moms and fussy kids in mind. The recipes are healthy and nutritive and yet palate-friendly for kids. A few days ago I was in Doha and saw this interesting juice and smoothie menu which said ‘like your greens’. It had many option of healthy yet tasty vegetable and fruit juices. Since summers are here, I thought it would be interesting to share a few of these recipes in this week’s column besides my kids’ favourite green pasta and chicken recipe. Surely this will bring a smile on your kid’s face and light up the meal experience.

Few weeks back, there was a big drama at home with my kids not wanting to eat home-cooked food but were demanding to order food from outside. Under ordinary circumstances, it would have been no problem, but the new house rule restricting ordering outside food to once a fortnight made the situation grim. Obviously as always I had to play the middle man between the mom and the kids and forged an agreement that I would make pasta and chicken which would be better than any neighborhood Italian restaurant  in town.

So started the preparation with my little chefs at work with me. The theme was green so we decided to make pesto sauce to blend the chicken.

First chef from India to be invited to Le cordon Bleu to demonstrate in Paris. Monish is credited with the trailblazing turn-around of Moti Mahal, from being a small but iconic presence in Delhi, to becoming a multi-national corporation that is well on its way to defining how the world eats Indian food. A traditionalist, Monish has remained true to the signature dishes that made Moti Mahal a legend, while reinventing the dining experience into one that is exciting and avant garde to suit modern sensibilities.
