Ramdev, Patanjali The hotel staff says the food here are prepared keeping customers’ taste and health in mind.

Chandigarh now boasts of yet another addition to the healthy restaurant landscape with Postik, which has been making news these past two days as possibly Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali’s latest venture. But, in reality, that’s not the case.

Though the Patanjali logo is prominently displayed at the entrance and on the menu, the restaurant is not a venture of The Patanjali Ayurved Ltd, yoga guru Ramdev’s FMCG Company in Haridwar. The 100 per cent vegetarian eatery in Hotel Indiano, Zirakpur, is an independent venture and company, and its directors are Rajpal Singh and Jaspal Singh.

According to reports, the menu card and the walls of the restaurant carry pictures of Ramdev and Balkrishna. The menu card of the hotel also displays health tips for customers. The hotel staff says the food here are prepared keeping customers’ taste and health in mind.

The Postik kitchen uses no artificial flavours, maida, cornflour, food colours, synthetic sweeteners, baking soda, ajinomoto to enhance the taste of food. The menu (dishes are priced approximately Rs 150 onwards), explores the diversity and exquisite taste of Indian cuisine.

While the staples like dal makhni, moong dal, paneer tikka butter masala, mix vegetables, aloo gobhi, khumb mutter, ‘ghar ka khana’ thalis are on the menu, the chefs have experimented to get some traditional vegetables and healthy and off-beat combinations to the list. So, there is gulab and khas ki lassi, Patanjali Thandai, Patanjali Kachhe Aam ka panna in the drinks section, coolers to beat the heat.

            Vegie food is good for health. Dead Animal meat are worst for out health & mental problems as terrorism, violance, Robbery, gangsters etc., Baba Ram Dev has a reason for vegie food. Namasté Babaji.

              It has the potential to become a world cl b like McDonald and KFC. Potential even more! And to the benefit of people with sustainability of the environment in mind! Good beginning for Patanjali!

                    Breaking news --- Patanjali is also opening a satwik brothel where the chicks dressed as vedic balas will provide shastra sectioned entertainment for chaddis. For the higher category of chaddis like RSS louts there will be special houses with boys in knickers.

                          @Arc: Innovative comment and true too! Enjo it. Question: Are all those in the brothel be brahmin girls? Because that is the only way to increase brahmin po tion. Bachelor Bagawat has told brahmins to have at least 5 children. Because at lease one of them will not be demented. Present statistics says 80 of brahmins are demented by birth. Karma acts also in brahmins isn't it!

Arabic terror cult followers will be served the hot sand mixed with camel with an opportunity to spit on the first terrorist of that terror cult whose selfie with Arabic terror manual will be there on trash can to show their respect to Rangeela nabi in Arabic style

                              Why call him baba . He is a businessman. Media should not elevate his status to holiness .

                                In what sense is he busienessman? Does he own a single share in any of Patanjali ventures? Go and visit his Ashram and look what he eats and how he lives before commenting on these pages. Also who is holy according to you?? One who wares saffron robes or one who does not. Both have equal options to be holy or unholy. So grow up buddy

                                Hats off to Ramdev's unorthodox and innovative approach to healthy living and making money in the process for his organization.

                                  What could be more poshtic than a gau-gobber burger with the gau-pis cola blessed by con-artist ram dev. The brain-washed fools will believe anything this thug tell them.
