There's something innately comforting about the aroma of freshly baked cookies and the heady scent of coffee brewing in a vintage themed surrounding, that instantly transports you to a family owned cafe in the bylanes of a small town in Europe.

Such is sure to be the case for every person who enters 'Oh Dough', a charming new cookie store located in the heart of South Mumbai, Kala Ghoda. The brainchild behind this is the brother sister duo, Ritika and Pawan Chawla. The warmth in Oh Dough eludes a fuzzy feeling that only comes when one invests their heart and soul into a place and one visit to the cookie haven will confirm the same.

The girl with the drool-worthy cookie making superpowers, Ritika Chawla has always nurtured a love for desserts and candy as a child. Ritika affirms that, 'When I would travel overseas I would walk into every other cake shop. After graduation from college here in Mumbai I spent my days working with the family business. My mother being a great cook inspired me to get my hands dirty, that's when I tried baking a few products. As I got older my fondness became my inspiration and I decided to pursue the Diploma Patisserie course at Le Cordon Bleu, London.' During her course at the world renowned institute, Ritika visited a bunch of patisseries and cookie stores which further inspired her to create her own recipes and cookie variations when she returned. Speaking on how the institute shaped, who she is as a chef and more, Chawla says that, "The nine months that I spent at Le Cordon Bleu London, has been a time growth and change on many levels. I feel like I have evolved my skills as a pastry chef as well as improved myself on a personal level. Attending one of the most reputed institutes in the world at first felt overwhelming."

Oh Dough offers a distinctive range of cookies like the Classic Chocolate Chip and a few exciting flavors like Pistachio, Hazelnut Praline and Double Chocolate Orange. Our personal favourite is the deadly combination of Pretzels and Potato chips called Smores + Chipzel. Furthermore, Ritika has curated and perfected an array of ice creams with flavors like Red Velvet and Pistachio Black Truffle that pair well with their range of cookies - just like wine and cheese. Come on over here for Cookies and Ice Creams!

The strength of Oh Dough lies in the fact that Chawla prepares everything from scratch, even the marshmallows are made in house! Apart from the above, Oh Dough also serves freshly brewed coffee and cold beverages that are again prepared in-house. The cookies will be freshly baked all day long so you know where to head to when you are craving the aroma of goodness!

Yet another stand out feature of Oh Dough has to be the interiors which have artistically been done by one of Mumbai's most loved architects, Minnie Bhatt. It reflects a place that is simple and still trendy, while ensuring that the focus is always on one hero, the cookie! The vintage feel of Oh Dough creates a vibe that makes one feel at home within minutes of entering.

The dream of Oh Dough would not have become a reality if it was not for the ever supportive brother, Pawan Chawla who is the man behind the operations and logistics of Oh Dough. Pawan comes from a hospitality management backgroud armed with a degree from Lausanne in Switzerland from Ecole Hoteliere De Lausanne. Apart from cookie critic, Pawan plays a critical role in the smooth operations of Oh Dough, while the chef does what she knows best, bakes those melt-in-your-mouth, never-say-no-to cookies!
