A new favourite Ice cream spot in Indiranagar - Iceberg Ice creams!


As Summer scorching in slowly, the weather demands for food and drinks that keep you cool. The anthem for current weather is - "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream." A recent favorite spot for Ice cream is in Indiranagar 12th Main - Iceberg Ice creams.

You will see the tag '100% organic' the moment you enter the outlet and here are some of the reasons which I liked about this brand -
  • They use organic A2 milk.
  • They don't use preservatives or artificial coloring agents.
  • They use organic rock sugar and gond (edible gum) instead of processed white sugar and artificial binders.
  • Ice cream contains less fat content.
  • They also have healthier options like goat milk, charcoal, and sugarless ice creams.
  • They have 31 varieties of ice creams.
  • Rich in nutrients and minerals.
  • Customers can choose a variety of toppings.
  • Pricing is very reasonable.

Having spanned a journey of over 4o years, each flavor is crafted with the goodness of completely natural and organic ingredients. Their ingredients are carefully sourced - creamiest cocoa from Africa, Custard apple (Sitaphal) from Telangana's organic farm, jackfruit from Panruti, and many more. Their ice creams give a fresh and velvety feel in every bite. I was so surprised when I tasted the 'eggless' bubble waffle.

My favorites - Sea salt caramel (coldstone one), Goat milk with choco chips, Bubble waffle Nutella Monk, and Charcoal ice cream.
They have outlets in Indiranagar, JP Nagar, Basaveshwanagar, Yelahanka, and Arkere and opening soon at Marathahalli and KR Puram. If you understand the difference between frozen desserts and Ice cream, then you will surely love this brand. Do visit your nearby Iceberg outlet to enjoy a sweet treat.

An experiment turned out good and this Chicken fry can be the perfect munching option for the weekend evening. Here is a quick and simple my style recipe for crunchy, tasty Chicken fry.

  • In a blender, grind all the ingredients mentioned under 'for paste' (except salt).

A visit to Mullapanthal Restaurant (Toddy Shop) in Kochi, Kerala

Today I want to share one of the best experiences I had in Kochi (my hometown) exactly on this day, about 2 years ago. I had an opportunity to visit the most popular toddy shop - Mullapanthal Restaurant (Toddy shop/Shaap) in Tripunithura which is very close to my home. This was my first ever visit to a family-friendly toddy shop. 

The visit to this place was worth all the hype which I've been hearing from ages. Mulla means Jasmine and panthal is pent/shed; exactly what you will be welcomed when you reach this place - a jasmine canopy at the entrance. They serve local brew (Coconut toddy) with all traditional fish and meat dishes.

The highlight of this place is that you will see a group of ladies in the kitchen preparing all the alluring dishes. The main Chef Radhamma is working there for 30+ years. Due to time constrain I visited this place for lunch soon after a late breakfast, so couldn't savor most of the popular dishes. I enjoyed a glass of Toddy with Konju (Prawns) roast, Kozhuva (anchovy) fry, kappa (Tapioca), and Vatta (Trevally fish) curry. Their fish head curry is so popular.

The place was so packed with the family crowd and I am glad I was lucky to visit this toddy shop. If you ever get a chance to travel to Kochi, include Mullapanthal Toddy Shop in your itinerary, I bet it will be a treat to your taste buds.
