Leaves aren’t just an element of garnish in the world of gastronomy, but also an essential main ingredient in lots of dishes. So, the channel is going to cut to the chase and get talking about interesting leafy facts tossed together by Chef Chopra.
When one thinks of leafy greens, one might think of the classic combinations found in a salad: iceberg lettuce and cabbage, or the desi favourite - palak paneer and saag. However, unknown is a plethora of leaves that ‘Patt-Ay Ki Baat’ is going to present its viewers on a 16-episode journey along with Chef Ajay Chopra.
With 48 different kinds of ingredients such as Fenugreek, Moringa, Coriander, Curry, Bay, Colocasia, Sage, Thyme, Rosemary, and more, the show aims to be set apart from all others, to showcase unique dishes using the leaf as a spice/flavouring agent, a main course ingredient, and a cooking agent that will surely add a newfound freshness to every meal.
‘Patt-Ay Ki Baat’ will air at 1 pm, every Thursday and Friday, on Zee Zest SD and HD, along with ZeeZest.com.
Chopra, Host of the show and Managing Director at Zion Hospitality, said, “I am glad to launch my third show of the year ‘Patt-ay Ki Baat’. The experience of creating wonders on a plate with a variety of leaves is a phenomenal one. Not only are these recipes healthy and nutritious, but also simple to prepare as snacks or even meals. My passion for cooking has led me to be a part of such delightful shows and I look forward to its success.”
