A pocket of surprises
What do you do in between meals, when it’s not quite dinnertime but you long for a small bite? That’s where the new range of puffs from Panetteria come in handy. They come in frozen packets and have to be heated in the microwave for an instant crunchy, steaming hot bite. Available in four flavours — Curry Crunch, Oriental Surprise, Peri Peri Munch and Thyme Roll — you have a variety of choices to match your palate. We tried all the flavours and absolutely loved the Oriental Surprise and Peri Peri Munch. They have a spicy hint and taste great with ketchup! To prepare them, all you need to do is follow the instructions on the packet, baking them for a given time, and a hot, crispy puff is ready for you savour. These mouth-watering puffs are perfect for an evening snack.
Price: Rs 230 (for 400g, 8 pieces)

Baked goodness
Have you resolved to lead a healthy and fitter lifestyle this year? While we often cringe at the thought of a disciplined diet, wary about the distasteful foods that we will need to fill ourselves up with, it needn’t be that way. The Protein Bake Shop helps you stay healthy and have fun while doing it. They have partnered with nutritionist Rashi Chowdhary, who has helped create delicious, healthy recipes. They’ve replaced refined sugar with natural sugar and increased the amount of good fats and protein in their desserts to improve the overall nutritional profile, so that you can have none of the guilt! To give all the healthy treats an extra boost, they’ve even added whey protein into some of these healthy bakes. We especially loved the Paleo Almond Butter (Rs 710 for 200g), the Fitscuits (Rs 600 for six pieces) and the Biscotti (Rs 475 for eight pieces) from their range. And, we’re excited to try some of their cookies and cupcakes, which won’t leave us with a trace of guilt after the binge!
