Tamil New Year – 2016

Tamil New Year Recipes


Tamil New Year also called as “Varusha Pirappu or Puthandu” among Tamil people all over the world. It is celebrated according to the Tamil calendar on the first day of Chithirai month. According to the Gregorian calendar it falls on 13th or 14 th April. Tamil People All over the world celebrate Varusha Pirappu in a big way by merrymaking and feasting.

As a food blogger, already I have posted few recipes for New Year (roundabout). But I have prepared a authentic and traditional food for our lunch. There are three main fruits for tamilians because these are the seasonal fruits during the Tamil New year time and called as “Mukkani (Three fruits)” – Maa (Mango), Pala (Jackfruit) and Vaalai (Banana).

Food Review – Zzungry, ROYAL KITCHENS OF INDIA


This was our 17th FBAB meetup with Zzungry, the meetup was something different from the usual, as we were invited around 11:00 A.M. I was wondering about the time, as every time the meet would be based on lunch or dinner, but this was a different time. The meetup was held at Chaipatty, Indira Nagar, Bangalore.

Coming to the meetup, this got in touch with few of the new foodies. This time I was in time for the meetup as Chaipatty was 15 mins drive from my place. We had a great chat with Mr. Subash Baliga, Mr. Sandeep Rana and Mr. Ashish Kalya, the founders of Zzungry. Also Mr. Subash Baliga shared out their experience right from the startup till delivery.

Zzungry – Take out Restaurant” as they call themselves, which gets Star quality food at your door steps. How many of us would or can dine at 5-Star hotels, may be countables, because in Star hotels we not only pay for the food served there, but also for the ambience and other luxury things like pool, lawns and so on.

Zzungry brings the Delicious and uniquely crafted 5-Star Indian Royal Food delivered to your home, which helps everyone to have a Royal Food without eating the pockets. And also depending on the quality and taste buds of the food, they do deliver only for 3 to 4 Kms radius.

Location: We were told that they are soon coming to few more localities and they usually keep on changing their menus on weekly basis, with unique dishes and so you can have varieties over there. . As of now they have delivering food around HSR Layout & Indira Nagar localities.

Packing: The food was very well packed but I felt little difficult to open.

Food: The food was very fresh, warm, aromatic, attractive and delicious, the right word I need to mention here is UNIQUE food. Also I would say that the food was not like or taste as a restaurant one, but was like the one we cook in our kitchen (home food).

I should mention the texture here, the first time I got to eat a (home delivered food) chicken getting melted in the mouth. The parathas was unique – ragi paratha stuffed with corn was good – UNIQUE. We were served with veg and non-veg boxes, as a non-vegetarian I preferred non-veg box. The box had a rice, a gravy, two parathas and a kebab.


Price: A Five Star Quality food at reasonable price. They also take corporate order, in advance.

I would highly recommend Zzungry. Order @ www.Zzungry.com and enjoy a Royal Food.
