When asked what his inspiration for this year’s flavours were, Chef Mural said, “With the travel restrictions this year, many people have to celebrate Diwali in Singapore, so what better than to have a mix of both classic Indian and Singapore flavours. For example, the Organic Coconut, Charcoal & Sesame; Orange, Ginger & Chocolate; and Lychee & Roasted Gulkhand flavours are all Singapore-inspired.” Mural also added that the roasted gulkhand is his take on bandung flavours.

“As always, I try to make my sweets as healthy as possible, without the use of any preservatives or extra sugar. If I had to choose, my personal favourite would be the Pistachio, Green Coffee & Prunes because of its high levels of antioxidants from the green coffee extract, the goodness of pistachios, and of course the rich nutritious prunes,” says the ever affable chef.
