Tawa Tales..New age kitchen with emotional touch

Now a days  food delivery is mostly in trend wrt food tables. People prefer to order food at home rather than wandering around. This has led to new food business in NCR regions with most competition. Winner deserves it when its every thing is in place. Starting from Food menu to order to delivery to Packaging to taste & presentation.

Recently we ordered food from TAWA TALES, a newbie in this business, which shares with their customer their love for food. According to their concept, “its a new age kitchen that’s all set to bring you mouthwatering delicacies from depths of India’s culinary heritage”. Will share my reviews about their modern interpretations of age old recipes.

We placed an order including both veg and non veg. quite easy to place the order and their owner Sanchali, provides full guidance in helping us decide the menu. She also guides you about the food taste, which leads to perfect customer satisfaction. Delivery was done before time as promised.

Packaging of food was perfect blend of art, culture and mind. According to Tawa tales team, they want to connect with their customer emotionally through extra value personalized items. Their packaging is both high quality & fun.Black microwave safe boxes sealed with plastic covers stating the food item inside. Every cover has Tawa tales pics on it. Food inside is packed inside foils to keep it warm.

With every order, they include a handwritten postcard for their customer stating their hardwork and love for food. Along with it they provide an InstaShot Foodmat, which is a new concept & gets food lovers a new way to click their pics.

Tawa tales has focused more on menu, which shows the amalgamation of so many dishes. This team has special relationship with several indian cuisines – from heavenly paranthas of Amritsar to staple dosas of chennai to spicy Kolkatta roles to litti choka of rajasthan.

In veg we had, Paneer Butter masala with Lachcha parantha,which was delicious. Paneer was soft & tender blended inside masala thick gravy which was medium on scoville scale. Lachcha parantha was perfect shaped and not at all oily. Next we tried their Parantha menu, where we had Mix & aloo parantha. Must say, had such tasty parantha’s after a long time. Fully stuffed, well cooked parantha’s with perfect flavors & taste. Simply loved it.

In Non veg we had , Chicken tikka masala roll, which again was served hot and tasted delicious. Chicken was soft and tender with perfect sauces inside Parantha.

In drinks we had Modi nagar ki Shikanji, which was refreshing lemon mint masala, tasting tangy and mouthwatering. In desserts, we had Walnut Phirnee, which is classic indian milk pudding thickened with rice flour with dry figs & walnut served in clay pot.

Must recommend place and would definitely try their food again.

Lohri farzified @ cyber hub,Farzi Cafe !!

Lohri is one of the most commonly celebrated festival in India and way of spreading joy.India being known for its diverse culture & traditions, here no celebration is complete without good food & dance 😊

This year we planned to celebrate lohri festival with family & friends at Farzi Café (cyber hub) who especially launched lohri menu for people to come and enjoy. To start with they have even scripted the menu card with lohri pics. Lohri is incomplete without bhangra dance on beats of dhol & relish scrumptious meals like we had here today.  So here is a short review about the same.We kicked off our day with delicious dishes like :

Bhuttia aur palak ke tinke

Presentation of the dish is an imp part which makes it more appealing. This worked out best for this dish as you can see in pics. It was curated well in form of lohri sticks. Skewers of sweet corn & spinach rolled on bamboo sticks. Prepared fresh make it feel smooth and soft when in mouth. Plated well with aloo chips that symbolized fire. Sauce was sprinkled well on sticks to symbolize flames and went well with the taste. It was prepared from bell peppers. Dish was amazingly delicious and mouth watering. We repeated the order.

C1Collage

Matka chholley with Lucchi puff

This was next dish served,& increased our hunger more as this is what Punjabi’s crave for. Pindi cholle with maida puri famous as Luchi. Cholle were well prepared with perfect blend of spices. Luchi on other hand was not at all oily adding to the beauty of festival food. Served with chilli pickle and potato fried worked as sidings. Loved this dish as it was toooo delicious.

Bathua Sarso da saag, Makai | Mooli Pide

Again Punjabi’s have to eat this traditional dish of ours to complete the Lohri rituals. Sarso da saag with makki roti is a combination of regional leafy greens cooked with ghee, jaggery & chickpeas flour. Presented in form of a ship, garnished with butter, gurr & raddish. It was a must try dish which can only be enjoyed eating with hand.

Rewari Gajjak Peanut Butter icecrea, caramel popcorns

Sweets are integral part of our punjabi’s festival. Here we had Peanut butter icecream ,which was crunchy from inside served chilled with caramel popcorns and rewari gajjak sidings. Neither too sweet neither less. Perfect blend to end your day with amazing after taste.

It was a great lohri celebration and will look forward to visit this place again!!

Fuschia Anti Acne Face Gel-Neem and Basil | Review

Face gels are a trend in now a days and especially Acne related. They have many ingredients which help to treat acne and as well help skin to grow radiant.I recently purchased Fuschia Face gel for my sister and suggested her to use it for her Acne problem. Let me share my opinion about it.

About Brand:

Fuschia comes under company Vkare Bio Sciences.This brand dedicated to Natural , Handmade Skincare Products. From natural ingredients to manufacturing process , from Unique Packaging Styles To Eco-Friendly Policies, brand stands apart from most other Cosmetic Brands. Their constant efforts to provide customers the best & at the sametime contributing towards saving our ecosystem makes its products , much in demand.

Product Description

Neem & Basil essential oil prevent acne outburst & heal inflamed skin, cuts & wounds. This combination tightens pores, lightens dark spots & brightens the skin to give a more youthful look.This product is made from Natural ingredients and essential oils.

DSC_1737

It doesnt encourages the practices, that may harm the user or the environment.So its Eco-friendly with its product development too. It contains no petroleum based ingredients, sulfates or parabens. It’s pure & natural with no synthetic preservatives.

These products are certified by Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). The certification ensures that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards, minimizing the risks involved in any pharmaceutical production starting from materials, premises and equipment to the training and personal hygiene of staff.

By opting for this, one can reduce his/her carbon footprint as there are chemicals or petroleum products are involved which relatively have a higher carbon footprint when compared to organic alternatives.

Store: Store in cool & dry place.

How to Use: Use these masks once or twice a week Apply a layer of this mask even over your skin and relax for 15-20 minutes. Once dry, rinse with plain or cold water.

DSC_1738

Packaging:

It comes in a small cute tub like jar with screw open lid which shuts tightly and prevents any spillage.

My take on it :

The gel is pale green in color and has refreshing fragrance. Its easy to use as it has big opening.Spreads very easily and gets completely absorbed by the skin with a little massage (i prefer circular motion). Should be usually applied during the night time before going to bed, as it helps skin to rejuvenate & show effects sooner.It doesn’t sting or irritate my skin, but rather it has a cooling effect.She has been using this gel since quite a while now, its really good

Will rate it 4/5, and definately buy it next time !!

Thanks for reading. Do leave your valuable comments !! Take care

 

Fuschia By Vkare Products Review

                                         Fuschia By Vkare Products Review

Hello Friends…Wish you all a very happy new year and loads of smiles around 😊

So am back with my first product review for this year which started with surprise hamper from Fuschia By Vkare. Will be reviewing their products one by one as per timelines and on my blog soon. Do read and follow for more such updates!!

You can check out my Instagram post about the products here.

Best I love about this brand, and its USp is: its free from SLS, paraben, phthalates. Never tested on animals, so cruelty free and definitely made in India. I love my India 😊

About the Brand:

Fuschia is range of Handmade Natural Skin products by Vkare. I have used couple of their products last year and now they have launched few new like “Activated Charcoal Face and Body Detoxifying Scrub”, “Neem & Basil Face gel”, “Lemongrass Intense Moisturiser” . As i mentioned above these products are free of SLS, parabens, phthalates, artificial smell etc, they are best for my skin and health. It’s USP, is the fact that it’s products are handmade, curated to have a special experience by it’s users.

So today will review their Fuschia Activated Charcoal Face and Body Detoxifying Scrub

DSC_1734

About the product: As the name suggest, it cleanses the pores and provides deep exfoliation action bringing out dirt from the pores giving squeaky cleaning effect. Its main ingredient “Activated charcoal”, is a great detoxifier with its super absorbent property due to which the toxins get stuck to it & leave our skin. Apart from this, it is also enriched with the goodness of aloe vera, olive oil and wheatgerm oil.

Packaging: It comes in a cute yellow plastic circular tub with a lid. The label on the lid bears the brand logo, product name and the key ingredients. It’s convenient to use as it has a full big opening which allows me to use it without a mess or wasting the product. Easy to carry around in your purses.

Direction for use:  Apply the scrub to moist skin and massage it in a circular fashion for 1-2 mins. Rinse thoroughly with water.

DSC_1735

Ingredients : Aloe Vera, Glycerine, Charcoal, Olive Oil, Almond peel, wheatgerm Oil.

Shell life: 2 year

Price: Rs.75/- for 15 gm

Availability: The scrub can be bought from Fuschia or Amazon shopping websites. The brand is not available offline though.

Pros:

  • The grain particles are even in cream texture and are gentle on skin.
  • Since its Cream based, it doesn’t dry out the skin or creates any irritation
  • Easy to apply & Non sticky
  • Mild & Refreshing Aroma
  • Gets rinsed off easily
  • Detoxifies the skin and makes it feel smooth & clean
  • Works best on blackheads

 

My take on it: This scrub gently draws out impurities and toxins from your skin, because of its best ingredient “Activated Charcoal”. Its thick & creamy in texture ,almost looks like clay having tiny exfoliating particles in it. Apply it gently on your skin else it might be harsh.Its grey-ish in color and bears a mild refreshing aroma. It is totally non sticky and non oily. I have applied it on my face after my skin test (read my previous blogs to know how to do it), and noticed quite a change within a week. It has bit of slippery texture when you first apply it on skin, but after you start working with it, it gives a nice experience. It is easy to wash away & less messy. Also does not dry out skin & replenish it with the goodness of olive oil & wheatgerm oil. It has worked well on my nose blackheads and reduced them to a great extent without any itchiness on the skin.The moisture level is so balanced that people with dry skin can also use it.

 

Do I Recommend This Face & Body Scrub?

Since the natural Skin care products are trend in market now, this product is a must try as it can work well for both the dry or normal skin type.The regular use of this scrub can make a huge difference to your skin.The oils present in the scrub nourishes skin without making it feel oily or sticky. Activated Charcoal really suck out all the impurities out of skin. I m gonna repurchase the full size of this scrub for sure!!! And also would love to try their other scrubs and masks as well as they have a huge range of face masks and scrubs in soo many variants.

Don’t forget to share your thoughts with me in comments section below. Will come up with other product reviews soon.

Till then stay happy and Smile !!

Lots Of Love.
