(Pictured in the Feature Image)
This minimalist dessert platter is one to die for. The Gulab Gulkand Cheesecake is a pretty pink delight with fresh rose petal reserve glazing smooth cheesecake. The Curry Leaf Ice Cream is a surprising, yet perfect, fusion of sharp and sweet. The creamy Mango Mousse finds unlikely companionship in tiny cubes of green Coriander Jelly and Roasted Banana Sauce.

Chocolate Hazelnut Affogato
Affogato, meaning ‘drowned’, stands somewhere in between a coffee float and good old Nutella. This dessert is a heavenly combination of hot, double shot espresso and ice cold, chocolate hazelnut gelato. Neither too hot nor too cold, this dessert is every caffeine and chocolate addict’s dream come true.
Where: The Park
Mango Panna Cotta
Smooth and velvety, this panna cotta dessert brings the comfort of softly set custard and the richness of slightly tart mangoes to the plate. Surrounded by freshly chopped strawberries and topped by buttery golden crumble, this dessert tastes literally as light, pretty and summery as it looks.
Where: Infinity, Novotel Varun Beach
This retro dessert is an enchanting amalgamation of ice cream, cake and browned meringue. Consisting of ice cream placed in a pie dish, lined with slices of sponge cake and topped with creamy white meringue that is baked to be caramelised, this igloo shaped delicacy is a real show-stopper that defies all logic.
Where: Palm Beach Hotel
Watermelon Mascarpone Cooler
Perhaps the most kid-friendly dessert on this list, it consists of a half-mooned watermelon standing on a portion of flavoured jelly. Filled in the slice is a mixture of whipped cream and mascarpone cheese dotted with chunks of fruit. Topped with a sprig of mint and accompanied by chocolate flakes, it tastes like the very definition of summer.
Where: GAD, The Gateway Hotel
Special Home-made Coconut and Jaggery Ice Cream
This rich, light gold, velvety ice cream is offered both as a stand-alone and as a pairing with various other desserts. Have it with Darsaan (fried honey noodles), Date Cigar or a Date Pancake for magnificence. Go for an Apple Toffy, Fried Banana or Coconut Roll if you’re in for simplicity. Chocoholics, do not miss out on devouring a Chocolate Roll with the ice cream as it’s a match made in heaven.
