Forget Kamasutra, dig into Grillsutra at Khanasutra! The global cuisine restaurant at Chrome Hotel launched the grilled food festival on Friday with chef and host of the FoodFood channel show Style Chef — Shailendra Kekade. Just in time for winter, expect grilled chicken and seafood cooked with local and international ingredients at the AJC Bose Road hotel.

“I have always experimented with ingredients as I strongly believe in creating something new and out-of-the-box, just like Remy in the movie Ratatouille,” said Kekade. The festival is ideal for the health-conscious who can dig in without feeling guilty. “Grilled food has the least amount of fat and is just right for fitness freaks,” said the general manager of Stone Water Grill in Pune.

Start with appetisers like Seared Lemongrass and Paprika Prawns Cream and Garlic or try the Watermelon Hearts and Marinated Feta with Mint and Black Salt — the mushy and salty feta cheese combined with a crispy slice of watermelon and a hint of mint soothes your palate. Polenta Fried Brie Grilled Strawberry Chutney is another novel creation. “We have had enough of mint chutney, so I thought of using strawberry chutney. The strawberries have been grilled so all the flavours are retained,” said the chef.

Move on to the main course with the Grilled Tournedos of Cottage Cheese with Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille. Or the Grilled Chicken Lemon with Chilli and Coriander served with pesto and jalapeno mashed potatoes. End on a sweet note with the chef’s favourite Flourless Chocolate Fudge or go for the Orange Mascarpone Mousse.

On till November 25, a meal for one would cost Rs 1,000 (plus taxes).
