Diagnosed with diabetes at age fifteen, Harsh Kedia spent the next few years of his life having to forego all of his most-loved desserts. Deprived of birthday cakes, laddus and all things sweet as a teenager, he decided to create recipes that would allow everyone suffering from diabetes to have their favourite foods again.
In Ultimate Sugar-free Desserts, Kedia, popularly known as ‘A Diabetic Chef’ on social media, shares more than 50 recipes to whip up delectable treats using stevia, a plant-based sugar substitute. With home cooks in mind, he covers an astonishing variety of some of our favourite desserts, from indigenous sweets such as gajar ka halwa, rasmalai and sandesh to gourmet delicacies like strawberry custard tarts, éclairs and peanut butter cookies, along with a mouth-watering array of healthy smoothies and lip-smacking beverages. It’s time to have your cake and eat it too!
