Fasting in Navratras is synonymous with food and  fun for the foodies like us…… We get a chance to try many new things to eat….. I had fun on the last Navratra day before Ashtami …… Fasting ---- hahahaaaa…what a joke!!! Thru the day eating loads of fasting foods and then going to have Dinner at a nice and hep place Sattviko in GK 2 Market, New Delhi……

Started at 7 p.m. from Gurgaon……just to reach in time by 8.30 p.m. at Sattviko …..but to my dismay the traffic was so horrible that I reached the place at 10p.m. (same day) lolzzz…… And my dear friends ,Who were coming from just 4 miles away took 1 hour 15 min to reach the same place……… Saari dilli aur gurgavaaan were going for a holiday I suppose to enjoy their long weekend…..but humari kya galti thi ??

I literally had an auto lag when I reached Sattviko for the dinner…….. Where Mr. Ankush Sharma (owner- partner) of the place was waiting for us since last 2 hours……..

“Sattviko” is a brand which comes from the word “Satvik” which means Pure…….


 So far so good……….The place was bustling with people …. Enjoying their food and having fun……It’s a nicely done place with seating of approx. 25-30 pax……. The kitchen is open and kept very neat and clean….keeping in line with the philosophy of Sattviko……Purity….




This place is owned by a bunch of IIT Engineers, yes you read it right…….who felt a need of some food outlet which serves all day food which can be relished throughout the day without feeling guilty……..
They don’t use onion and garlic in their food……..No it’s not Jain Food…..but yes it is Satvik or yoga food loaded with benefits of yoga ..…….. As they give 5 reasons to eat at Sattviko as follows….


Fresh……Full of Love…..Healthy…..Active …..Positive……

Now let’s talk food……..

We ordered the navratra specials like Kuttu Parantha and Jeera aloo…..Sabudana (sago) Thalipeeth…..Sundal salad……Sabudana poha and pulao and also the chilled melon salad…..
The kuttu paranthas were like thin rotis made in almost no oil , accompanying them were nicely made full of flavor Jeera Aloo (sabke favorite)……. I loved this dish…….


The Sabudana thalipeeth was our very humble tikki….but nicely done only sabudana no potatoes at all…..with lots of green chillies and nice sweet and tangy chutney …… Nice Dish
Sabudana was the king….. Now the sabudana poha …well made non sticky sabudana on a bed of tomato chutney with nuts etc……
Sundal salad was very nice too.....soaked moong dal with a tadka of mustard seeds and tangy dressing ......
Pulao was nothing but sabudana khichdi which we all make at homes ……. But was really made well and tasted good…..
The Chilled melon salad was refreshing with chunks of watermelon, olives lettuce and broccoli in a honey mustard dressing....... Good


As I was fasting so I only had fast related food like all the above dishes and some more………

My friends, ordered something different ….which clicked them to be a real fusion food or I must say confusion food….like Mexican Spinach Quesadillas and Quad Burger which I thought will be a four layered burger but “Quad” meant Quadrilateral instead of four layered (engineers at work) ….It was a square shaped burger made of foccasia bread stuffed with grilled veggies , paneer and basil pesto…..very unique and yummy as per my friends……..


Quesadillas were green in colour as spinach was used to knead the corn dough to make the tortillas…….stuffed with bell peppers, tomatoes and cheese……Nice dish (again as per my friends)
The drinks were too good….I had the fruit punch which was a refreshing concoction of mixed fruit puree and milk…. Awesome I must say….. Other drinks like mango smoothie and mint lemonade were nicely done too…..
The desserts I tasted were Lauki Halwa and Shrikhand……..I must tell you the desserts were very normal and nothing extraordinary at all……Can be improvised a lot……Next time I will have the frozen banana too…..



The pricing of the dishes is done very well…….starting from Rs.45 to Rs.225 for a full meal box……Not at all pricey…… …. We met a few of the diners who told us that they were visiting the place for the 8th time and the 5th time….I was surprised to know from Ankush that there were a few customers who have visited them at least 50 times ……

Sattviko is a place where you can go every day and enjoy their food……Its healthy and does not make a dent in your pocket too………
