Caught up with eating clean and cannot miss out on desi sweets and snacks? Vasudha Home Foods by Sudha Rani Gupta has eatables that are completely organic, sugar and preservative-free. As someone who has always followed the lifestyle of eating tiny meals and healthy snacks, Sudha ventured into opening a home food studio only after realising the significance of eating healthy. Also after a much-needed nudge (and support) from her fam!
At the moment, Vasudha offers around eight types of ladoos that include variants like flaxseeds, oats, dry fruits, millets, puffed jawar, and rice flakes. We've dug into these sugar-free desserts ourselves — the crumbly flaxseed ladoos and the dry fruit ones (naturally sweetened by dates) won us over. In fact, these make for lovely gifting options (not just for the health-conscious peeps) too. Along with ladoos, Vasudha makes podis (flavoured powder that is mixed with rice and eaten) which appeases the South Indian in us. Karvepaku Kaaram (curry leaf powder) and Flaxseed Kaaram (spicy flaxseed powder) are her sell-outs! And if you take your avakayi annam (pickled rice) seriously, her carrot pickle must occupy a space in your kitchen. Now, aren't you making plans to ditch sugary desserts for these organic ones?
