The ITC hotel chain has now introduced a Signature line of breakfast menu called Signature mornings; available every morning from 7am to 11am at all ITC Luxury brand hotels across the country, Signature breakfasts aim to give a fine dining experience at your first meal of the day. As part of the Signature menu, chefs from across ITC hotels have collaborated to create unique healthy combinations that would leave you gorging guilt-free and taking back a lesson or two on healthy organic substitutes for your kitchen. Enjoy this visual treat of a Signature morning spent at the ITC Sonar.

It is great to actually have the option of opting for pancakes made with amaranth ditching the regular refined flour, or a bowl of muesli with ‘forgotten grains’ such as jowar, bajra and ragi (finger millet). There is always the slightly more indulgent salmon and almond milk clafouti, a clever spin on the french dessert favorite, and the universally popular eggs benedict.

These are apart from the regular elaborate breakfast spread at ITC Sonar, that has everything from cold pressed juices to the regular cheese and cold cut spreads, assortment of freshly baked breads, and the equally appealing morning dessert counter. There was even a South East Asian breakfast corner with congee and stews that are absolute comfort food any time of the day. What is not there on the counter is available freshly made upon order, and this includes a South Indian breakfast spread to your regular poori bhaji.

The best part of the breakfast spread was that they had taken care of every possible kind of consumer with food restrictions. There was something for the diabetics, something for gluten intolerant, lactose intolerant, kids, piping hot Indian breakfast lovers, etc. There was for example, a flax seed yoghurt muesli that was simple, healthy and so tasty that both Anwesha and I came home to try and make the next morning. There were other sugar-free options that diabetics like my dad, would totally adore.
