AB’s are back in Gurgaon..read the review !

AB’s means my all time fav Absolute Barbeque, which is recently launched in Gurgaon at Mg road. I was skeptical about it serving less of veg options, but was really surprised to see max of veg over non veg here. They have a range of veg starters and main-course menu. Separate section are maintained for preparing the dishes and even the crockery is distinguished by colors red, green making it comfortable for servers to understand.

We were welcomed by manager Vishal, who ensured we were served at their best table. Must say it has quite spacious ambience to accomodate 100 pax. at our very moment, 2 corporate parties were going on. We had a great time interacting with one another and admiring the decor and of course the entire arrangement of the grills, live counters and the dessert counters.

Since it was a weekday, we reached by 8pm. Vishal checked with us regarding our choices and servers started serving. We tried their drinks menu, which had good variety like :

In starters (veg), i had :

Grilled Pineapple (4.5/5) – tasted wow. tangy from inside and coated with honey syrup.It’s a must try.

Kashmiri Kebab (4/5)– It was nice and tasted just like harabhara kebabs, but additions to it was raisins..which gave it a very lil sweet flavor, which again i liked.

Achari Paneer Tikka(4/5) – Excellent. Soft, well marinated and grilled paneer.

American Cheesy Potato (5/5) – Yummilicious ! no words, but i repeated it even before leaving the place.

Crispy Corn (4/5) – Liked them, but not something to rave about.

Golgappe (2.5/5) – i didnt like the water here, as it tasted bad. I gave the feedback to vishal and he explained us that the golgappe was full inhouse and he will try to make it better. Loved his sporting will to accept customer feedback.

Along with above starters, they also have big separate section to roam around and try other delicacies like Chinese, Arabian etc. which compound to their  “Wish grills” section. We tried the chu chur naan with paneer khurchan (5/5), which was highlight of the evening. Must must try !! other section had noodles prepared with som many non veg options like squids, octopus, shark, mutton etc. We sensed absolutely no foul odour and they were beautifully cooked and wow what a great taste! The rabbit and the quail tasted delicious with perfect spices around. The shark meat was something new i tried and was well spicy & rich in aroma. It’ll definitely wake up your taste buds!

In main course, we tried dal makhani,, aloo gobhi masala, sarso ka saag with breads. Next round we tried Hakka noodles with manchurian. Loved the flavors and aroma of the perfect cooked food.

C2ollage

Last but nt least, is most imp part of meal. DESSERTS, which here was like a live counter. Customers can select the ingredients like flavour of the ice-cream ,toppings etc and person behind the counter works magic on it to prepare wowww delicious deserts. Their specialty is Paan ice-cream which is yummylicious. Next wish item was Gewar with rabri (5/5). Other options are humongous like 5 varieties of pastry, banana cheese cake, angoori gulab jamun, strawberry pudding, saffron phirni, chocolate balls etc. Now it needs no words to describe as it was yumyylicious.

C3ollage

Service was awesome. Extremely polite, friendly & quick.

Highly recommended !! Will definitely plan my next corporate party here 🙂

Festival season is round the clock and we all enjoy eating delightful desserts. So its a call out to all lovely people reading my blog now, here i am with my last event coverage, which happened at Indigo Delicatessen, cyber hub in collaboration with Easydiner last week. We had a fun-filled sweet sweet day as we learned so many dessert recipes from chef Rahul, using Nestle Grekyo Yogurt & milkmaid.
Event was inaugurated by Nestle Product/brand manager , where he described about Nestle and its products, specifically he shared more about Greek yogurt which was VIP guest of tonite.

Do you know Grekyo yogurt of nestle is prepared using different bacteria with milk powder. Shocked to hear it. Read more to know recipes made out of it !!

Chef Rahul, took over from him and started sharing his secret recipes.

Let me provide you a short overview of the event:
1) Condensed milk cup cake
It was yummlicious cupcake i ever had. Soft and moist from inside decorated with a swirl of delicious buttercream frosting. and butterscotch crunches.
Ingredients:
  • Butter  85gm (room temperature & softened)
  • 250gm Nestle condensed milk
  • 1Egg
  • 1tpsn or 5gm baking powder
  • 125gm of Refined flour
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract
Ready In : 30mins
Serves : 10 people
Steps:
  • Preheat oven to 375f or 190c; line muffin cups with papers.
  • Cream butter till light and fluffy
  • Add Nestle condensed milk gradually and beat both now. Don’t add once else lumps will get created.
  • Add 1egg..if u want to avoid egg, you can add more condensed milk.If you want to add more eggs, do it one at a time.
  • Now add Refined flour (mixed with baking powder). Easily mix & churn so there are no lumps. Don’t move it fast,as it will become sleek
  • Now add Vanilla extract & Keep it aside for 5mins so texture is even.
  • Now fill it up in prepared cups. Don’t overflow, so just fill it up till 2/3 of cup.
  • Preheat it in Oven at 175 degree for 20mins.
Suggestion: Best part of this recipe is No machines required at home. Secondly in cupcakes..use less baking powder as you don’t require much fluffiness.
Icing: For icing your cupcakes, you can use chocolate ganache, as it gives both flavors of a chocolate and full of cream. Its 1/2 choc 1/2 cream. Sometimes prepared in Rum too, to give alcoholic flavor. Else decorate with a swirl of delicious buttercream frosting.

2. Baked yogurt
This recipe can be prepared using any flavored Nestle Grekyo yogurts in less than 15mins and Serves 5 people.This dessert is absolutely divine – just try it once and you will want to make it again and again. Best point here is, we don’t have to remember the chef maths, since all ingredients are used in equal proportions.Its perfect for parties as they can be made ahead of time.Here is how to make baked vanilla yogurt.
Ingredients:
  • 200gm Caramelized Condensed milk ( Its a different ingredient prepared over 4.5hrs in a boiling pan, keep on stirring)
  • 1/2 cup or 200gm Fresh cream
  • 1/2 cup or 200 gm flavored grekyo yogurt
  • 1/2 a teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps:

  • Take a bowl and add in half a cup each of Flavored Grekyo yogurt, heavy cream and condensed milk. In India, we do not get heavy whipping cream. We get only low fat cream and it works fine for this recipe.
  • Now we need to add 1/2 a teaspoon vanilla. We need real good quality vanilla extract for this recipe. Please do not use imitation vanilla.
  • Mix everything well until smooth.
  • Pour it in cups or vodka shot glasses and bake in a 160° Celsius oven for 13-14 minutes. No need to preheat the oven for this recipe.
  • After 15 minutes, the middle of the cup should be jiggly. If its still liquid, bake for a couple of minutes more. Do not let it cook for long else it will become hard. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.

Suggestion: Secret of this recipe is to place the glasses in “Water Bath”, which means hot boiled water.

Why are coffee scrubs a must try ??

Here let me increase your awareness about Coffee scrubs and why they are the latest “must-try” product of many natural skincare lovers. Since its main ingredient is caffeine or coffee powder ,which has some very interesting properties that make it an ideal ingredient for face and body scrubs like:

  • By applying to the skin in a gentle circular motion, coffee scrub exfoliates the skin, eliminating dead skin cells and brightening the skin
  • Caffeine, the chemical stimulant in coffee, has antioxidant properties, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines.
  • Caffeine is also moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term by tightening and toning the skin, and improving blood circulation in the skin tissues.

Basic Ingredients & Benefits

  • Arabica coffee infusion & Ground Arabica Coffee: It It stimulates blood flow in the skin and also promotes circulation. The caffeine in it helps in reducing scarring, cellulite and stretch marks.Natural aromatic, Organic Arabica coffee offers a sweet molasses aroma, & exfoliates dead skin to promote healthy rejuvenation.
  • Organic Wild bee honey : Provides smooth & softer skin glowing like never before
  • Shea Butter
  • Organic Cane Sugar syrup : Helps to fight acne and protects skin from ageing
  • Kaolin clay : Its the perfect skin detox helping skin to fight acne & purifies the pores
  • Fuller’s Earth : Also known as fullers earth, multani mitti has been used to get rid of skin issues and achieve radiant, blemish-free skin since ages in India.
  • Glycerin : provide softness
  • Vetiver & vanilla oil : Vetiver oil, also known as khus oil, is a lesser-known plant oil that offers a heavy, earthy fragrance and works as a massage oil to calm emotions.
  • Aloe vera extract : Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation.Aloe is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema
  • Xanthum Gum :used in oil-in-water emulsions to help stabilize the oil droplets against coalescence, and has some skin hydrating properties.

Packaging: Its a heaving grainy liquid scrub packed properly in a tub like cute box, whihc offers its a clean look and makes it handy to carry anywhere. since its a pre-prepared material, we are just left with applying it using a spatula or brush. So easy to use too 🙂

My experience & recommendation:

Now that you know why Ryaal coffee scrub ingredients are the best, and what exactly you are applying on your skin, it’s now time to try it. Buy here

Way to use: I ensure to use it while showering, as it helps me to clean the stuff easily and takes less time. I start with applying it gently in circular motion on my face especially on my nose to clean the blackheads. 1 minute gentle massage is more than enough to get a nice scrubbing effect. Since I have dry & sensitive skin, so doesn’t prefer much of scrubbing. Post that, rinse it off well and now you can notice all the dull & dead skin cells are long gone now.The honey present in the product makes sure to moisturize my skin. My skin does not feel tight or stretchy. It’s all beautiful, soft & smooth.

If still you feel the need for moisturizer, please go ahead ! It’s definitely a great way to wake up and get ready for the day!

Always do a skin test before applying any product. Have mentioned about it in all my previous blogs. Do visit them and read again. After successful skin test  only, i would highly recommend this product for evening scrubs only twice a week. It will help you remove dirt and clean pores. Apply cream and take a beautiful sleep, which will help your skin blossom in morning.People with oily skin, can try it for small patch , and see if it suits them,then only go ahead.

Lockup..Wanna be jailed for food!!

As name suggest, this place gives you new experience of being in a jail and treated with scrumptious food in aluminium plates and bowls. I visited it yesterday with my husband to have dinner & was really impressed with its interiors. They have tried really well to create the quirky rusty ambience with jail bars all over, dim lights and old Aluminium chairs. Walls are decorated with thief’s images and a chain barred thief standing on doorstep to welcome you. They have utilized the space very well, providing 2 floor seating with ample way to walk.

Service was really quick and person in charge ensured everybody is attended on time. Food presentation is tasteful just like its food.We were very hungry so started off with starters along with few mocktails like Oye Bubbly (5/5) – Orange & peach mojito, Melon Fresco (5/5) : Watermelon & mint juice

Food_Coolg

  • Veg Mezze platter (4/5) – crispy falafel,baba ghanoush served iwth soft pita breads and hummus. Decorated nicely using long crispy papdi.
  • Veggie surprise (5/5) – It was a Wrap slight on spicy side, but full of veggies and mayo cheese. must try. Outer crust was
  • Farm house Pizza (5/5) :
  • Jalapeno Poppers (4/5):

With a slight break and our talks, we ordered our main course, Dal Makhani, chicken makhani with breads. Must say the Dal makhani was authentic to its taste with perfect flavors indeed. No artificial added cream. Its gravy was perfect blended with spices.

We called off our lovely evening with a wonderful surprise dessert. Guess the Ball (5/5): no words to describe its presentation and taste. The pic says it all.

Had a great day and will highly recommend it to all. Please find it on Zomato at :
