Have You Tried These Paper Boat Juices?

I am not a big fan of packed juices, as I always prefer fresh juices instead of packed one.Delhi is the capital of India and one can find huge options for everything. Here in Bangalore, around the area I live in, I have tried almost every Juice shop but I couldn’t find the one I could prefer. And the shops I found better, are serving Juices on high rates.  In Delhi you can get a small glass of juice between Rs. 25-30, but here the same quantity of Juice would be Rs. 60-80 and therefore I think it would be better to buy fruits here.

I was aware about Paper Boat Juices but I had never tried it. Paper Boat offers a wide range of beverages and pomegranate was the one I tried first and I loved it. After then, I tried different flavors. They have Anar, santra, amras, apple, alphonso aam, Jamun, kokum and many more.  Recently I tried Kokum and Jamun and trust me you will love them. After Ama panna they became my favorite. I love their tangy and spicy flavor.

The range of these beverages is between Rs.20 to 30 for 100ml pack, which is a good deal.  The company claims that there is no added preservative, no added colors and no GMOS in these beverages.  I have not found any harmful ingredients written on the package. You can see them on the picture below  ๐Ÿ‘‡

The company really have tried to attract their customers with its beautiful, unique and colorful packaging. And above of all, I found great taste in reasonable range.

Mango Ice-Cream With 3 Ingredients

It looks tempting and tastes delicious; it is the most loving and favourite fruit of many, the king of summer and India’s national fruit, yes, it is “Mango”.  It is really difficult not to get fascinated by its sweet and sourly smell and beautiful shinny bright colour.

In India we love to have Mangoes in Pickles, shakes, chutney, cooling drinks etc. We use it in ripe as well as in raw form. This is the season of mangoes and I decided to make something with it before the season ends.  So I found an easy Mango Ice-cream recipe on YouTube with only 3 ingredients. I tried and it came out delicious. So this time I am sharing Mango ice-cream recipe with you all.

  1. Mango pulp: 500 gm
  2. Fresh Cream: 250 ml
  3. Condense Milk: 50 ml 

  1. Make the paste of mango pulp in mixer and then add fresh cream with condense milk in it. Just give it a blend for 2 minutes and you will get a creamy and nice textured paste.
  2. Put this paste in an air tight container or whatever container you have just cover the paste with aluminium foil before putting the lid.
  3. Keep it in freezer for at least 8 hours. 

Your Mango ice-cream is ready to eat.                                                     

Note: As this was my first time, I felt that it would taste more delicious if your pulp would be little sour. Also you can add some dry fruits or Tutti frutti (candid fruits) in it. You can add more condense milk or sugar as per your taste. You can also adjust the quantity of ingredients according to your requirement. The above ingredients quantity will give you a good half kg ice-cream brick.

How To Make Tea In Microwave

I have a microwave and I rarely use it or I can say I only use it to warm food or sometime to make Dhokla and Idlies (Indian recipes).  I never tried to make anything else except these, as I use LPG for cooking on daily basis. I also have heard and read on internet, that food cooked in microwave is not good for our health; I don’t know how much it is true.  

Well, few days back our LPG cylinder got empty and it was going to take few days to get a filled one, as we forgot to book it before.  We are evening Tea lovers and I know we were not going to enjoy it more, until we get our new cylinder delivered. We were craving for our evening tea. And there is a proverb i.e., “Where there is a will, there is a way”๐Ÿ˜. I decided to find a method to prepare tea in microwave. I started searching on YouTube and finally found a simple and easy method. Today I am going to share it with you all. So let’s get started.

Ingredients (for 2 people):
  1. 1 cup milk
  2. 1 cup water
  3. Sugar to your taste
  4. 2 tablespoons Tea leaves
  5. Use cardamom, cinnamon or ginger whatever you like for flavor. 

Method and timings:                                                                                   

Use microwave friendly Bowl, put all the above ingredients and cook it for 4 and half minutes on high watt (mine is 900 watt). That’s it your tea is ready to enjoy.

Note: Use a deep and wide bowl, so that the boiling tea would not come out of it. The quantity of water and milk depends on your choice. Some people like less milk and more water and some vice versa.

DIY Honey Banana Hair Mask and Review

The most important part of your face is your hairs. Hairs enhance your personality. We do many hair styles to change our look. Male or female all need healthy, strong, smooth and shiny hair. The market is full of hair products like hair mask, serums, shampoos, conditioners, hair oils and so on. In this fast moving life, where, we don’t have time not even for food, we run after all the possible quick fixes for everything. But the reality is every product is made up of chemicals. We are searching natural benefits in every chemical product. If you really need natural help for yourself then you need to go for natural things.

Few days back, I tried DIY Honey and Banana hair mask for my hairs. You just need 2 ingredients to prepare this mask. 
  1. 1 ripe banana 
  2. 1 tablespoon of Honey


Mash the ripe banana properly, here with "properly" I mean try to make a smooth lump free paste. Now add 1 tablespoon of honey to it. Apply this mask with your hand and leave it for half an hour. Now wash your hairs with your regular shampoo.

This mask works well on frizzy and dry hairs. We all know the health benefit of banana. It is a complete food and good for every age. Banana contains fiber, anti-oxidants, potassium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Magnesium, protein, carbohydrate and fat.  Banana and honey’s properties soften the hair, protect from split ends and breakage and maintain the hair’s natural elasticity.  

Review: This mask is no doubt little messy and would be difficult to clean the hair easily. Even while combing you will find banana’s particle on floor, but you will definitely find your hair much smoother than before.

Note: You can mix 1 tablespoon curd for dry hairs and 1 tablespoon lemon for oily hairs in the mask.

Give it a try and let me know your experience.๐Ÿ’—

My first time with Onion Posto Recipe

Hello everyone, I am back with my new blog and this time I am going to share my experience with a Bangla dish called Onion Posto or Pyaaz Posto. This dish was totally new to me as I never tasted or even heard about this. I would like to share a short story behind this dish before sharing the recipe.

One weekend I and my husband went to my sister’s place to see her sister-in-law’s new born baby. There we meet her mother in law too. It was a normal get-together.  They made lunch for us and there I found a new dish, yes, it was Onion Posto. I asked to my sister about it and she told me that it was made by her mother in law. It was one of the favourite dishes of my sister’s husband. The dish was so simple but good in taste. After lunch I asked her the recipe. She told me it was made by onion and posto which is called poppy seeds in English. I was aware about the poppy seeds but it was first time when I saw it at her place.  I asked about the recipe and decided to make it, as, it was easy to cook with simple ingredients.

Next time, when I went to the market I picked up poppy seeds, as it was the main ingredient of this recipe. And this was the first time I am using it in my life, as I never had poppy seeds at my home before and my mother also never used it. So, all the ingredients were with me and it was the time to cook. And the dish came out so good.  I and my husband enjoyed it. 

This recipe is so simple and quick that anyone can try it. So, here I am sharing this with you all. Try it once and do let me know.

Ingredients for Onion Posto Recipe:
  1. 3-4 medium size Onions
  2. 3-4 green chillies (as I do not use red chilli powder much, but if do, u can use it too as per your taste)
  3. 3 tablespoons of Poppy seeds (grind it and make a smooth batter)
  4. 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  5. 3-4 tablespoons oil
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Half tablespoon of turmeric powder 

  1. Heat the oil and put mustard seeds.
  2. Once the mustard seeds started popping out put green chillies in it.
  3. Fry it for a while and now add Onions.
  4. Fry it again and now add turmeric powder and salt.
  5. Once the onions are soft and translucent, pour the poppy seeds paste in it.
  6. Cook for another 5 minutes

And your Onion posto is ready to serve ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Easy Peasy DIY For Glass Bottles

When we (me and my husband) are free and don’t want to stay at home, we usually prefer to go out for some household shopping or visit nearby mall or visit my sister’s home as we don’t have any relative except her at Bangalore. Not so interesting right, yes I agree๐Ÿ˜. So last week we went out for some household shopping at Dmart and with other required things, I also picked up a packet of gem stone multicolored sticker. These stickers are decorative items for kids used in schools mostly for DIYs in art and craft classes. The packet was about 18-19Rs.

Few weeks back, I bought a Money Plant for my living room and put it in a glass bottle. This bottle was so simple that I wanted to do something decorative on it. Yes, this is why I picked up that sticker. I had something in my mind with it, not too decorative but better than this clean and clear bottle.

Finally, today I am all alone at home and nothing much to do, so I decided to complete that decoration task. First I changed the water of that bottle so that I don’t need to change it after sticking gems on it at least for few weeks. There were 8 rows of gems in it, I thought all the gems are separate but these were in a row. Earlier, I thought I will do some complicated and stylish designs on it but at last I just stick out those rows and pasted on the bottle. And the result is below ๐Ÿ‘‡

money plant

Hmm, not so good but better than the plain glass, right. I think it is looking better now.  This was my simple and easy DIY of the day. Well, I did it too simple but you can do some art work on this plain bottle. You can paste some more gems in different pattern on it or if you know how to paint, you can do some painting on it with Acrylic Enamel colors.  

I would love to know your ideas. Keep sharing๐Ÿ’—

My First Travelling Experience by Flight - Delhi to Bangalore

I never had a list of wishes but like everybody I also have few wishes and one of them was to travel via Airplane✈. Now you will wonder what wish I had because it’s not a big deal now. Today this is so common to travel by plane. But when I was in my childhood or in 90s it was a wish of many.  Due to high flight’s fare and less options it was not possible for everyone to take advantage of airline facilities. Now there are many private airlines companies who are giving many offers to their customers every day and due to the increased competition their fares are bearable too.  The living standards of people have also been raised compared to the time of 90s.

So I wanted to travel in flight but not in day time. I used to see planes flying in quiet sky at night with that blinking lights and I always wanted to be a part of it to experience that quietness of dark sky and to see those little sparkling lights on earth far above the sky. 

Last year, on 27th February 2017 I got married and within one week of marriage I and my husband shifted to Bangalore.  Finally my wish is going to be fulfilled as we are travelling to Bangalore by Flight but it was a day flight. I was not that much excited what I used to be. It was a normal day for me though everything was new. Luckily we had a window seat and that was mine, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰lol. The flight was about to take off, I fastened my seat belt and ready to fly. My husband looked at me and started to smile as he knew it was my first time. Aeroplane started running on platform and soon it was half in the air and then I felt some butterflies in my stomach as if I am taking a roller coaster ride.  The same thing happened while landing too. Well, after some time the plane was still and I felt air pressure in my ears.  I was almost deaf and bored now. I had to be like this for next 2 and half hours.

I forgot that I was seating in window seat but when I realized that there is something interesting to see out, I took my phone started taking pictures and videos. It was a beautiful view; soon we were surrounded by white clouds, like we were in heaven. We were about to land and it started raining. Oh, I forget to tell that the trip was Delhi to Bangalore. Delhi and Bangalore both look very different from sky.  Well, my first experience by flight was good and yes, my wish to be in plane at night has been fulfilled last time when I traveled by flight and it was the same as I was assuming it would be.
You can see a small video uploaded on my Youtube channel too ๐Ÿ‘‰ Delhi to Bangalore
