Recipe Files: Topspinner Baqar Naseer shares his easy salad recipe!


I met Baqar almost 8 years ago. This was when the Worli Gold’s gym was called exert, I hadn’t discovered the macaron and was absolutely addicted to his spinning classes. If you haven’t tried one of his classes, you MUST do it right away. But let me warn you: it is as addictive as chocolate cake (seriously!).

Baqar started cycling when he was 9 years old. He has won 11 national medals in cycling and in the last 5 years he has set up Topspin and has spinning studios all over India! An average class makes you burn around 600-800 calories (so you don’t feel so guilty sinking your teeth in to a tiny little redvelvet cupcake later!)

What is amazing about him that he hasn’t changed one single bit since the first day I met him. I recently went for a class and was delighted to meet the same funny, vibrant and encouraging guy I remembered from all those years back.

I asked him to contribute to our recipe file and it is only fitting that he has given us a recipe for his favorite salad.
