Getting ready for #MyFriendAlexa!

So, it’s the first time for me! I am all nervous and confused and searching all those articles on Alexa rank and browsing through twitter with the hashtag, #MyFriendAlexa and literally spamming blogchatter team there with my queries! Thanks God their patient and didn’t block me for this!

But I guess, I have got the main idea digested! It’s a blogging festival! A big one! That’ll eventually help me get a higher performance for my blog and not to forget getting the better ranking at its highness, Alexa. The lower I rank at Alexa, the higher I rank in the blogging world. Plus the interactions and genuine feedback’s I would be getting on my blog would be another positive factor to look forward to.

What’s more? For the love of reading, I get to read some varied works of numerous bloggers all so experienced and amazing writers because of this fest. A minimum of eight or many in one or many niches are welcome here too.

I guess, I should dedicate my September to a month full of variety of niches covered in this blogging fest. I would start a chain of blogs with genres and cover almost all aspects of lifestyle and other niches while we complete the fest. For example, my first blog would be on pregnancy stages while second can be on fashion styles. I can dedicate my third one for food and the fourth one for technology. Similarly, writing on travel for the fifth and finance for the sixth would be a great choice too. I am planning to let my seventh post be dedicated to food and eighth one for travel! Who knows I may even cross the eight figure and write more! May be the ninth one would be on parenting and tenth one can be on home decor ideas and I can even write an eleventh on fiction and more on parenting and more.

Let see if these ideas work and I can survive through this challenge after the A2Z challenge! Wish me luck and stay tuned for a month full of varied and exciting posts!

The trendiest desserts in 2018! #GodrejFoodTrends2018 #GFTR2018

Foodies are evolving and so are food trends! Strange hunhh? Never thought even food had a trend too? Or do you assume the latest craze for Italian or Mexican cuisine as a whole idea of food trend? Actually, that’s just the part of it. Food trends is the day to day preferences of foodies about various food items and their increasing demands comprises of a food trend. For instance, the recent healthy bowl options that are getting so much common is a growing food trend, while Indo-continental food that we delightfully have is a great food trend and there are much more. Related to these trends, Vikhroli cucina brings out the food trends report each year that has the best prediction done by food experts on diversed food trends and their possibility of getting more popular hence onwards!

Desserts are BAE!

From that large predictive list is the one dedicated to desserts! As they say so rightly, we indians aren’t just ready to desert our dessert! That sweet taste after our normal meal had become almost like an addiction to us. Although those calories do show us the red light, but dare we stop having those sweet taste buds at any cost?


Such are we! Hence I think the prediction of bite sized desserts taking a huge leap in 2018 is highly possible. We are now hung between our cravings for sweet after each meal and the growing fats threatening our healthy routine. So, the Savior here comes in the form of these bite sized positions. The one which are prepared in smaller positions so as to limit the consumption of the same. Such that in the end, we can say, “we had just little dessert after the meal.” And a little less guilt too!


I also feel presentation counts a lot! We have always heard that hindi dialogue,”jo dikhta hai wo bikta hai!” This is especially going to take quite a big leap in the dessert trends in 2018! Food, especially desserts that would look devastatingly tempting. Why? Because I feel somehow with the growing use of social media, we hardly order something to eat it, rather it’s to post it! A story on instagram or Snapchat is all we are concerned of nowadays. In the hussle of posting them on social media platforms, we often tend to forget to enjoy what’s been presentated such beautifully to us! But, again, some people will especially visit that place to enjoy that dessert because it looked so tempting on another’s Insta story! Hence the assumption comes automatically that the taste would be amazing too. So, I personally think there would be an increase in beautifully and uniquely presented desserts largely in 2018.


Healthy desserts are again something that’s going to reign the 2018 food trends. We just read above how guiltless food is important to health conscious foodies. Well, because of this, they’ll definitely choose deserts which consist of healthy ingredients rather than living them off altogether. Just recently, I have tasted innumerable desserts that used honey or brown sugar instead of white sugar, chia seeds being the prominent ingredient in many of the desserts, bananas and berries being included in many desserts and cakes. And not to forget the latest trends having cakes being made up of whole wheat and multi grain flour. Thus, I think even healthy options in desserts are going to dominate over the dessert trend in 2018.


Even indian fusion desserts seem to be a highest possiblilty this year. Did you ever before hear of pani puri or paan or motichoor laddoo flavoured icecream? Well, this is what’s reigning the ice cream world right now. The Indian fusion desserts are getting loved across the nation. People are actually enjoying a rasogulla pastrie. They are loving the idea of having their jalebies being made in Mexican style! Well, that’s another food trend that’ll definitely be seen quite a much in this year.

There may be more trends that are going to get a role in the Godrej Food Trends Report 2018, but these factors are going to effect our food choices and preferences a lot! But whatever the teendlist displays, one thing’s for sure, though we may not the have the habit of having our gargling session after meals, we just cannot quit or sweet toothing session after those meal times!

Now comes the food, I always did hear that they serve some authentic and delectable biryanies, I wanted to try that for sure! But, I started my dinner with lamb shorba, delicious, slurpy shorba is surely a must try for all the lamb lovers.

The starter platter

The starter’s platter including some delicacies of mutton and chicken both, looked deliceous! Tasting it was left! It included chicken achari tikka, a soft, boneless chunk of chicken with achari masala, quite ravishing must say. The malai chicken tikka, a little bit sweet and soft meat of chicken made in tikka style is also quite a try here. Both the chicken and mutton tikka were spicy and scrumptious to have! Even chicken lollypop in the platter was good!

Instanbul parda biryani

Though all of their biryanies are a must try, both in vegetarian and non vegetarian options, their latest, signature biryani, Instanbul parda biryani is an amazing dish, the most recommended dish from their menu. A super yummy lamb biryani with softest chunks of meats rolled in excotic, indian spices, covered in yummy coating, this biryani is enough to reward them with an extra star.

Desserts and drinks

Finishing of with some rich, thick and creamy lassi to compliment the yummy meal and deliceous, soft gulab jamuns as desserts, I would say my experience here was superb! With experienced and efficient staff, they surely are well managed in serving their guests the most efficient way!

Fastest four healthy recipes with prawns and fish this #worldhealthday!

The need for a healthy diet!

A healthy diet is a healthy you! In this day of continuous stress and excessive work load cramping our body and soul extensively, staying healthy has become an essential target that’s too difficult to achieve! Either we are always on a go, hence, we end up ordering those restaurant meals or start heating up the ready to eat food with loads of preservatives in it. We hardly think about getting our meals organised. Like, getting fresh raw materials delivered at home and then preparing some unique dishes with it. There are numnerous online stores like cambay tiger available doing so nowadays which do deliver fresh fish for our wholesome meal in the minimum time at our doorstep. The lack of time to catch up with basic exercise and walks adds up to this misery. The result is in front of us. The machine depended generation today have turned in to a 24/7 working machine with serious illnesses like insomnia, diabetes, thyroid, high blood pressure, hazardous chronic diseases, PCOD and most of all, obesity.

Sea food, a healthier ingredient!

While being on a consistent quest on finding the best, fastest and healthiest meal pattern, I came across some quite useful tips and recipes to attain better health with quality eating. While I sorted out some excotic, healthier and quality veggies for the purpose, I also made quite a discovery with the non veg ones. For example, one of the fastest meal option in sea food, prawns are even low in calories and protein than in chicken, yet with much more protein. Prawns contain magnesium, which plays a role in nerve and muscle function and bone devolupment. Fish is slow fat high quality protein and is filled with omega 3 ac plus vitamins such a D and B2 (riboflavin). Fish is rich in calcium, phosphorous and a rice source of minerals such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium and potassium.

The other side of food reviews!

With great position comes great responsibility! We all have heard the quote and who wouldn’t agree to it? Myself as a food blogger since three years, I have been lot in to this reviewing position lately. Reviewing food from street foods to fine dines, it’s all a matter of great concern. While everyone else think it’s all an excuse to have loads of food, I always consider it as my top most responsibility as my regular job and a great passion as a hard core foodie. Today, let me open up the other side of the food reviews, the other side of the coin that’s still veiled from majority.

As a home maker, I have been cooking varieties of food for around thirteen years now. In these past thirteen years, I have got all sorts of people, Indian and foreigners visiting my place and tasting what ever I have made. There are always those numerous comments and prasises about my prepared food that encouraged me so much and made the tiring process of cooking so much enjoyable. There have also been some comments those were not appropriate or I may say, heart breaking and left me wondering, what have I been doing around all these years?

Over the years, my passion for food exploring brought me amidst the blogging and reviewing world! Where in I stepped in to the process of appreciating the good food around me and reviewing and stating the same on my blog, Zomato, trip advisor and other such platforms. But, while I sank deep in to the sea of food blogging, I got to know about the different fishes that survive under the same water. Some with an incredible knowledge of the tiniest ingredients in the versatility prepared food, while some with little or no experience of swimming in this sea. There were also some even stating the food they tasted as bad and pathetic! This made me so sad, since childhood I was taught never to say anything bad about the food you get. What you may get as a morsel, is just in someone’s dreams. No food is bad,if you don’t like it, just avoid it, why bother telling everyone around about it!

But reading such lines which describe food as disaster and rubbish makes it just so unethical and rude! It’s true that when you are a reviewer, you have to state the facts correct to the people reading your reviews. It’s your responsibility. But everything can be dealt by two ways. We can either be ride in our reviews stating that particular food item was wrath tasting, or we can say, I wouldn’t recommend it much, but you can try the same if you want to. This conveys your message without breaking the heart of the chef involved.

Why do we just ignore the fact that the person preparing the food is but a human. He/she is destined to make mistakes just as we are. Why do we forget that these are the people who turn those raw vegetables in to beautifully cut dishes. These are the ones who mix all those different Coloring spices and turn them in to a similar coloured gravy! The ones who take all their efforts to stand on those heated rooms for hours just to make a captivating, deliceous tasting dishes. This job does take the pain just like any other does. From the small-time cooks on the road side stalls to the high class celebrity chefs at the great restaurants, each of them put in a similar kind of effort to prepare something. Can we just for a second, slip on their shoes and think, if we are resting a recent review on our food and someone stated the food prepared was pathetic, how would we feel? Will we be excited as before to serve the next customer awaiting us? Will be still be feeling that we did great by choosing this job as our profession?I know, each of us all will feel the same way at that time, totally negative!

The reason for putting all these thoughts out here is just to let that even minor chef inside us spring to life and understand, when someone would point out at our efforts rudely, how would have we felt?

We can point out the missing details of the food rather in a different way as our suggestions. They are always asking for the same. But negative and harsh comments, no one asks that, neither likes them.

So, the next time we go and visit someone’s place who is preparing a dish for us, or visiting a new restaurant for that matter or just having a food cooked lovingly by our moms, take some time to appreciate their efforts, let them know you care and you can even give your suggestions to them politely. And as for the latest craze in trends in review goes, carry on your duty as you do the usual way, and do give the desired subtle approach to whatever negativities faced. After all, a human always has that talent of exposing a matter from both the sides. Let’s from now on, explain our negative views even in a positive manner where this matter is concerned. Let’s make cooking food an easier job through our easy to go attitude and approach of the same. Remember, it’s not easy to cook thrice a day for 365 days and each day something that hasn’t been cooked yesterday!

Hydrating with instacuppa #SuperBloggerChallenge2018.

12 O clock in the noon, April sun already beaming in its hardest form and a huge pile of work to be done! I was already feeling dizzy and parched. A swift movement to get my flask made my office go on a merry go round trip again! I caught the edge of the table, gathered my self together and grabbed the flask with a protein shake in it. The shake prepared at 7.00 am in the morning would have turned almost stagnant right now. I opened it started to drink it, yuk! The smell coming out of it was enough to make me go nauseatic again. I have to do something, I just can’t keep on revolving here and there, again and again, the whole day. I didn’t want to turn in to mother earth you know!

That evening my dietician cum physician was quite angry with me! “I told you never go for over dieting!” She almost gritted her teeth. “But I haven’t. I follow all the diet chart you give me religiously well.” I was beginning to feel like an ill patient already. “Hmmm! When was the last time you had some fluid?” She inquired. “Actually, it was a protein shake, I tried having it in the morning but it had already started smelling awful till noon in that flask thing”. ” oh! So we get the hang of it! You are just dehydrated.” Here, she knows everything. I always boasted amongst my friends that my dietician was a health and fitness google! She knew almost all going in the health and fitness world.

“Well, actually, due to lack of water intake, we often feel that we are hungry. Here, intake of enough water takes its part and helps our body functions go working perfectly well. That’s why staying hydrated is the key to fitness. Even though we may be followings healthy diet full of vitamins and minerals, a dehydrated schedule spoils everything.” She said. “I agree! And that’s why I carry sometimes chilled, sometimes warm water in the flask. But, the cold one turns warm and the warm drink gets a strange taste after some hours. How can I manage to stay hydrated when I am so much busy with my work? I can’t have that strange smelling liquid. Nor can I rush from my cabin each half an hour to get a new fresh detox drink.” I kept my problems in front of her. “Try instacuppa”. she said. ” oh! Now, what’s that? Another bottle of my fitness or detox drink?” “Not a regular bottle. It’s a thermosteel flask. The perfect solution to your problems.”

Then she went on in detail. “Fill in your daily detox liquid in this container. It has a unique infuser rod to keep your fruits in it and a water container with vacuum insulation that ensures that our cold beverages remain cold for 24 hours and hot beverages remain hot up to twelve hours. Perfect for your hot green teas and cold detox liquids. It lets your water stay in your preferred temperature for hours and fresh too.”

“And it won’t smell?” “It won’t smell bad, in fact, your drink will stay fresh as if you’ve just made it.” She was quite confident. “You can check mine here.” She showed me her infuser. “Hmm! This looks good”. ” And can you see its outer coating? It’s beneficial too. The Powder-coated matte finish never sweats, preventing slippery bottles or dreaded stains on wood surfaces. Thus, your infuser stays dry always and the temperature in it remains maintained.”

All those praises went on my head and the next thing on my way home, I ordered my own instacuppa thermosteel flask right away. Delivered the very next day, it certainly was quite a package. Reading all the instructions and following all the guidelines I made my first detox drink in it.

Fruits were sliced and put safely in the rod, water filled up and infuser well locked. I got it all covered in its sweat absorbing cover and yo, we were good to go! Till 10 am, the drink was as it is and even the temperature showed no difference. Let’s wait until mid-afternoon.

I was pleasantly surprised that even after 5 pm in the evening, I felt I was drinking a fresh detox drink. I fell in love with the product. Went home, read again the cleaning instructions, and again filled with some black coffee.

Whoaa! Even after 11 pm at night, I felt I was sipping a freshly made coffee.

Now, my purse has a new guest in its place, the instacuppa infuser. Lifesaver for me and I should say for anyone who needs to stay hydrated and fit or just have a habit of carrying their liquids along with them. I have even gone through their various more unique products and have found them really interesting for regular use too.

Let’s say as of now, I am a huge fan of instacuppa and how got my wishlist full of its various awesome products like an instacuppa fruit infuser water bottle- Tritan edition. and instacuppa green tea detox water bottle- double walled glass edition.
