“People want honest,flavourful food, not some show-off meal that takes days to prepare.” – Chef Ted Allen
If, you believe in that then you must also believe in the ease of one bowl meals that pamper your heart & soul. We all have seen a surge of Buddha bowl meals on our feeds, the trend caught fire early this year & has been unstoppable.
What started as a paean to the vegan way of living, has caught the fancy of the other side of the pasture as well. Ergo, we are spoiled for choice with versions of all kinds. I, had the privilege to be a part of the demo held by Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal, where she presented to us versions of the “Bombay Buddha Bowl” at a very apt location “Soda Bottle Opener Wala”

About Bombay Buddha Bowls Demo :
We were ushered into “Soda Bottle Opener Wala”, for the demo. As it hit dusk, the clink and clanks of the preparations started to be heard. The table was set and we saw “Rushina”, take over with the introductions. The tables were set with the ingredients and all we had to do was witness the magic.
The Gujarati Bowl was the lucky bowl that got to be demonstrated by Chef Danesh Vakshoor & Rushina. The ease with which they made the “Dal Dhokli Ravioli” and candied peanuts was a pleasure to watch.
