Nature’s Basket Cook-A-Thon: Cranberry & Nutella Christmas Crunchy Dumpling By Chef Harangad Singh

Chef and founder of Parat Food & Catering Pvt. Ltd shares his love for cranberry and nutella in a delicious Christmas dessert.

Chef Harangad specialises in Indian cuisine, and over the years he has been able to carve a niche for himself with his classic, innovative and nostalgic Indian food that focuses on freshness, the use of local ingredients and, most importantly, leaves the customer satisfed in realty rather than just in theory.

His formative years at Taj Vivanta Bengaluru, Varq at Taj Mahal Delhi and Tresind, Dubai, where he worked under some of the finest chefs, helped groom his style. He believes in honest-to-goodness taste.

Chef Harangad has travelled extensively across the country to understand the various elements of regional Indian and nostalgia cooking. Inspirations from diverse flavours of India and the bounty of Delhi markets reflect in his food, particularly in his earlier stints at Prankster and Pra Pra Prank by Biggie Hospitality, where he was the corporate chef. Parat and Me-awww are his own brands as an entrepreneur…. naturally, he puts his best foot forward!
