Raw Mango Chili Ice Cream

Standard

Already few months back I have discussed about #Foodventures in one of my post, let me share that the contest in on , and when it comes to a dinner with Michelin Star Chef – Vikas Khanna or Food Connoisseur – Vir Sanghvi, who will end up trying with one adventure. Now this comes with Food Topics – my 2nd post getting under Sweet and Spicy.

When it comes sweet and spicy, my mind strike only for dessert, as of summer vacation and kids at home. Due to summer, now every one of us try hard to keep us cool and so me. Finally got struck with Ice creams and this resulted me to take a challenge with a Sweet and Spicy Ice Creams. Recently I have tried out Mint Ice creams and it was such a hit not only in home, family and among friends but also with my followers.

Now my brain started to work on the ingredients, as my fellow foodie friends Naveen and Sangeeta Das, suggested me to give a try with Raw Mango and Chili, after the mint ice cream. I kept dragging in the preparation, and now this is the right time for preparation. But they want me try out raw mango ice cream and Chili Ice Cream. But after this topic, I thought why we don’t combine both raw mango and Chilies into an ice cream

Now I am ready for the adventure with food and this is called FOODVENTURE. The main aim of the #foodventure is to spread the passion in food. I tried out my “RAW MANGO CHILI ICE CREAM”, I don’t want to mention that there is something different but everything is different in this Ice Cream.

The Ice Cream came out to its own perfect texture, one could feel the flavor of raw mango and chili and when it melts in the mouth we can feel the tingling taste of raw mango with little sweetness, and punch of green chili.

The secret of the taste is “Too much of anything is good for nothing”, so be sure with the right quantity of raw mango, green chilies and sugar getting induced in the Ice Cream. When something induced much, you will miss the punch in the Ice Cream.

Not only it’s me and my hubby, also my kids liked to have this Ice Cream. A must to try and also friends, like me each and every one of you would have a good and wonderful adventure with food. Feel free to share your adventure on Foodventures by Axis Bank Dining Delights and a person with the best foodventure will have dinner with Michelin Star Chef – Vikas Khanna and Food Connoisseur – Vir Sanghvi.

Cucumber Fruit Sharbat

Standard

As my friend was to Trichy, he got me this (Cucumber Fruit/Vellaripazham/Puttupazham) fruit. I couldn’t take the full picture of this cucumber fruit as it was bursted. Being a food blogger and a recipe developer, nowadays my friends use to get something may be a special or something new and fully related to the food and suggest me to develop a recipe, it may be from their hometown or happens even there are on touring. When they have completely a different food with unique taste, they collect the details of the food and keep me updated about those food and suggest to create depending on it. Having people who support us in my each and every move may be a passion or profession is like a boon – Feeling Blessed.

Cucumber Fruit commonly known as Vellari pazham or Puttu pazham. These fruits one of the seasonal fruits, you get to see these fruits in every nook and corner streets of Tamil Nadu. During my childhood, my mom use to get this fruit, peel of the skin and sprinkle sugar over the fruit and leave it as such for some 30 mins, after that we get to eat these fruits. It would be heavenly, not only in taste but also its very healthy and a best coolant for summer.
