About The Whitefield Arms A quintessential modern British Pub, it celebrates the history of Whitefield through its unique menu and Bangalore’s love of beer. A living history pub with colonial themed wooden furniture and outdoor seating makes it the perfect place to catch up with friends and colleagues.

Ambience – The restaurant was too good, with both indoor and outdoor setup. As the weather was too good on that day, we chose outdoor table. They had a beautiful in-built garden with gorgeous and colorful flowers that makes us enjoy the environment. Indoor was also too lovely with the bar setup and marvelous lightings, amazing quotes as wall hangings and plenty of space. I would strongly recommend their outdoor setup for a romantic candle light dinner.

Location – VR Bengaluru is located on Mahadevpura (whitefield) next to Phoenix Market City and The Whitefield Arms is located in the first floor of VR Bengaluru.

Parking – VR Bengaluru has ample parking space in a well-arranged manner.

Service – Service was too good, first of all they just asked whether we are allergic to any kind of food and then comes the menu. Mock tails were suggested by them as per the seasonal produce.

Food – We liked all the foods right from the burger bun till the dessert everything was yummy, delicious and perfectly textured. Let me share the food I had there…

  • Mock tails – As we don’t consume alcohol, we asked for mock tails. There were 4 different types of mock tails – Mango Bloom, Chocolate Obsession, Tinker Bell and Pomegranate Delight. I like all the four mock tails.
  • Medley and Stew – Mulligatawny Soup: The soup was too good with the right blend of creaminess in it. Farm Fresh Salad: The salad was prepared with farm fresh vegetables and fruits – Poached pear, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and micro greens.
  • Quickies – We ordered for a non-veg platter: The platter had chicken, prawns, bread pizza, onion rings and a dip.
  • King’s MealNaughty Jack – I love this burger to the core, I would say very first time in my life I had such a soft burger bun, not only the burger bun the patties was perfect done. The knife went through as it was slicing butter. Roast Lamb Shoulder – The lamb shoulder was perfectly done that no efforts were put to pull the meat, it came out just like a cotton when a fork got inserted. Spinach Cheese and Potato Dumpling – Liked the combo of spinach cheese and potato dumpling, being very easy to make kids consume. Rice was yum and delicious which were paired with both spinach cheese and roast lamb shoulder.
  • Desserts: Classic carrot was delicious and few chocolates.

Suggestions: I would strongly recommend anyone who goes there to try Roasted Lamb shoulder and Burger for sure.

Thanks, The Whitefield Arms team for your invite, totally it was a heavenly, classy and out-standing lunch.

Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Success and Peaceful NEW YEAR 2017

When I see everyone posting their resolutions and was asked to blog about my resolutions and happenings in last year. First I would like to say that, I don’t make any resolutions, somehow I believe that when I plan to execute things, it never happens (how hard I try) may be I would fall sick or someone in home or problem with my laptop or personal issues. Even if it happens it might not meet my satisfactory level. Apart from all these thought of following some things that I like to, may be this would be the resolution or my desire in life.

happy new year, happy new year 107, new year, new year 2017

Happy New year 2017 from Madraasi

About last year – Last year was wonderful and good to me in my blogging world. I got invite for events where I got to meet celebrities – Australian Master Chef. George Colambaris, Indian Master Chef. Sanjeev Kapoor, Master Chef. Shaun Kenworthy and Master Chef. Abhijit Saha. It felt like flying in the sky and that was a “PINCH ME MOMENT” for me.

Kitchen Connection – it was an online platform where I was given an opportunity to teach my recipes all over the world. Also there was a desire to do video recipes, where I created my YouTube account by 2014 and this kitchen connection was been a great motivation in bringing my channel live.

Food Revolution by Jamie Oliver – Joined Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution as an Ambassador, also got to opportunity to collaborate with them and it’s been and being a proud moment for me. Check out this recipe – Chicken Vermicelli Biryani from Leftover Whole Stuffed Roasted Chicken and say no to Food Waste.

I have been working with many brands not only the food brands but also with home interiors, things related with kids as a parenting blogger where I got to recognized as a LIFESTYLE blogger and also few travel based clients based on food and travel with hotels and restaurants, online hotel platforms. Check out my reviews – CLICK HERE.

Got featured in leading magazines like Deccan Herald (Bangalore), Kumudam Snehidhi and Dt_Nxt (Tamil Nadu).

Happiest thing was my YouTube Channel – MADRAASI where I got to share my video recipes; it’s been just 4 months but got wonderful and lovely response. Do like and subscribe with us for easy and simple VIDEO recipes.

A Home Chef event with Eastern Condiments at my home discovered the tutor in me and let me know that I can teach my recipes.

I also got to design a Beautiful visiting card for me as a Madraasi, never expected all these would happen, when I started my life as Housewife a decade back.

Coming to the blog through which I got connected with few wonderful people who has been my inspiration, motivation, energy booster,  support and would love to mention the name of a person among them – Geeta Sridhar who I address as Akka (elder sister), the way she smiles, works for society everyone should learn from her – a pride of WomenHood.

Worst part in last year – At the same time, also met the worst part of my blogging life and got to know that even people are ready to kill someone if they get something in blogging which involves copying, critizing fellow bloggers. Also experienced some strange things like getting added (unknowingly) to WhatsApp group and was thrown out as not being active (funny).

Social Media – Coming to social media, last year to be frank I was doing good with all my social media handles, but faced few bad experiences through Facebook and WhatsApp because of few people who loves the word “NEUTRAL” and I am frank to say that I am not “NEUTRAL” and don’t ever want to be “NEUTRAL” but love to be honest, faithful, trustworthy, positive, encouraging and friendly person.  My Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest which made me get connected and connecting with wonderful people. From the experience got through my Facebook and WhatsApp – I got to learn many things, which would help me survive in this blogging world.

Dream Came True – Apart from all these things, 2016 was being my dream came true year, as learnt stitching. I love being fashionate right from my childhood, but somehow it took these many years for my dream to come true. I did my basic stitching course where I got to learn the basics of stitching.  Happy, I got to stitch few varieties of frock and skirts for my daughter. Hopefully I will be heading to the next level in next couple of months.

Marble Cake with Easy cleaning tips (LAL HIT) for Christmas / Marble Cake recipe / Zebra Cake recipe

Being a home maker, mother, and now a blogger, I expect perfection in all my work so that at least I can get my best. Moreover being a self-satisfied person I like to do all my work by myself. I love to have a environment clean and tidy, even having a maid, once in a month or before any special occasion, I use to clean my whole house by myself with the help of maid. Cleaning is not at all a tough job, but when it comes to kitchen I am very curious in cleaning, because of the crawling insects.

Product Review - LAL HIT

Product Review – LAL HIT

I would say that cleaning kitchen and bathrooms are not an easy task, so in this fast moving world where everyone are busy, again it’s not an easy task to clean the house very often. But we have to maintain the cleanliness every, now and then, as “HEALTHY HOME LEADS TO HEALTHY LIVING”.

But for last few years I am glad to have LAL HIT as part of my kitchen cleaning. It has reduced by efforts in cleaning process. It comes with a Deep Reach Nozzle, which can be used in kitchen sinks, near cylinders, every nook and corner (behind the door, windows…). I use this into kitchen once in a month. Now it’s this LAL HIT – the crawling insect killer, which helps me leave fruits, vegetables (covered with a net basket) in my kitchen shelf, vegetables in kitchen cupboard to stay safe away from the cockroaches.  #SayNoToFoodPoisoning
