Healthy and deliciousThe concept of healthy food is slowly catching up with the people all over the world. Less of oil, less of fat and less of sugar seems to be the new mantra that is riveting the present generation. Elixir, the multi-cuisine restaurant opened in Road # 7, Banjara Hills believes in the same principle and provides healthy food in a wealth of tastes.

The health conscious restaurant brings you a menu of tasty, wholesome healthy food, which includes an array of fresh fruit juices, soups, salads, and appetizing ethnic dishes from all over the world. "This is the first restaurant in India which is following the concept of healthy food," says Mr HM Reddy, proprietor of the restaurant.

Elixir- waiting for the guestsThe menu of the restaurant provides joy for anyone who believes in the healthy food and long life concept. If you think that the restaurant has only vegetarian dishes then you are truly mistaken. The restaurant caters to the needs of both vegetarians and non-vegetarians. You might be wondering in what way the non-veg dishes are going to be healthy. That's where the Elixir proves a point. It has non-vegetarian dishes like Kerala fish stew, Patrani macchi, Murgh tikka labadar, Kashmiri yakhni and Malabar mutton stew. But the specialty of these dishes is that the dishes have controlled ingredients in the form of less oil and less fat but rich in energy and taste. For example Malabar mutton stew has 657 kcal of carbohydrates, 16.4 gms proteins and 53.9 gms fat, everything in controlled proportions. The Elixir menu has lot of variety and includes vegetarian dishes like paneer lazeez, tarkari biryani, gucchi pulao and Andhra dishes like punju pulusu, rekkala vepudu and chapala pulusu. Apart from these, they also have Chinese and Continental cuisine.

Have meals in the pleasant ambienceThe plush multi-cuisine restaurant also features a calorie count menu and has a full time dietitian who guides you on matters of diet, fat and carbohydrates. Help in charting out a suitable diet chart is also offered at the restaurant apart from special meals for customers who are overweight, hypertensive and high cholesterol. The dietitian makes sure that the food that is prepared in the restaurant is low in fat and oil but delectable and sumptuous. Says Mrs Radha Reddy, dietitian who offers advice for the Elixir restaurant. " By using just 8 grams of oil we can make tasty and delicious food". Even the desserts are prepared keeping in mind the health concept. While preparing desserts Sorbitol a natural extract which tastes sweet and provides fewer calories than regular sugar is used. "Sobitol just tastes Taste the food like sugar and does not alter the taste of the sweet," says Radha Reddy. Radha Reddy who teaches in Kasturbha Gandhi College also answers the diet related queries and provides free diet information on 'diet dial service' of the Elixir restaurant. She is available between 11 am and 10 pm.
