Who doesn't know the big shot Burger King when it comes to burgers?
For me, they are my go to place for some amazing Chicken Fries! 


 Burger King, recently organised a Christmas Carnival at Burger King, Select City Walk Mall outlet from 16th December to 18th December. This particular outlet was Burger King's 1st store which was launched in November, 2014.

Say 'Yes' to Health: Spirulina Smoothie with Dates

December 09, 2016 Posted by Rishnita Bhandari No comments

In order for our bodies to function properly and stay healthy, it is important that we follow a good nutritious diet.
But let’s face it, who in today’s time has got the time to keep up with the charts? Or even something as simple as eating healthy?
We prefer something as effortless as a magic wand over our heads, giving us the curvy body, and perfect abs.

But, I recently came across something as simple as supra! – Spirulina Powder by Parry Wellness!



About Spirulina:

Spirulina is 100% natural and a highly nutritious salt water micro algae.
It was discovered in South American & Africa in natural alkaline lakes. This alga has constituted a significant part of the diet of many communities.
With over 100 nutrients, Spirulina is often described as the most complete food source in the world, which is what makes it sufficient in providing us with our required daily nutrients.

Now,
Talking about the people who can take Spirulina:

Since it is a nutritional supplement, it can be taken by anyone, anywhere, in all walks of life, be it children, pregnant women, mothers, elderly people, athletes, etc.; basically, EVERYONE!

Spirulina is best taken in the form of a beverage.
And I have formulated a recipe using the Spirulina Powder by Parry Wellness.



INGREDIENTS REQUIRED:

  • Dates,
  • Water,
  • Sugar,
  • Milk,
  • Honey,
  • Spirulina Powder by Parry Wellness


Step 1:

Soak the dates in a bowl of water overnight, so that they become soft and are easily peel-able.
When they have become soggy, cut each of them from between and remove the seed, stack the remaining parts.



The reason why it is yellowish in color is that,
I used dried up dates, instead of normal dates.

Step 2:

Put all the dates in the mixer; add milk, sugar to it.
The batter that one gets now should be pulpy, because of the dates, and whose consistency depends upon the amount of milk added.

Step 3:

Pour the contents in a glass, preferably using a strainer,
And add just a Tablespoon of powder to it.



The drink should turn green in color, just as the color of the powder.
Add a little bit of honey over it to give it a sweeter taste.

A couple of simple yet easy everyday things can replenish the required nutrients in our body, strengthen the functioning of our immune system, and bridge the gap caused by the missing nutrients.

North Indian Starboy: Pind Balluchi


Each time I crave for some North Indian delicacies, I look out for traditional places which prioritize authenticity over western influence!
One such place which never fails to amaze me is Pind Balluchi.


There has been no looking back for them since they first started. It is the shining star, endowed with many enviable awards and visited by whom not in the country!

The desi interiors at all the Pind Balluchi outlets across the country have an earthy charm to it. Some of them have been so constructed to give a village courtyard look with a huge truck, banyan trees, and such other things. To compliment the ambience, appropriate cutlery has also been used.
One such outlet which gives such a traditional feel is in Vaishali. Newly opened in a mall in Vaishali, I looked forward to a wonderful time!



The minute I spotted the outlet from across the food court, every thought mentioned above was justified. The entrance had this huge door like the ones in Palaces, with rustic feels to it. They have an indoor area, as well as a village courtyard open air space!

I had made mental notes in my mind regarding their specialty dishes from menu. Started the meal with a classic Mojito, and an Italian Smooch! Mojito was one refreshing and kickass start to the meal.
The starters consisted mostly of chicken dishes, with just one mutton item, which was a little off settling. But our moods were lifted as and when the starters started arriving. We aimed at trying every type remotely.

I had already heard so much about Pind Balluchi’s Dahi Ke Kebabs, which was why it was my first choice! They were literally so soft on the inside and equally crisp on the outside.
It felt right from Amritsar when I had the first bite of Machi Amritsari. It had a chew-y outer, a lot oily, but the aptly done fish beneath!

We would have been so disappointed if we wouldn’t have had Murg Tandoori at a place like Pind Balluchi. We expected this Murg to be a nice and dry tandoori, but it came as a greasy one, which was equally desirable as it did not give away the tandoor taste!



Pretty ordinary mutton seekh kebabs! The minced mutton was held together nicely and was the perfect blend of spices!

You can also go for Mushroom Kurkure for a teda meda kick, on a regular vegetarian dish!
Moving to the main course,

Determined to try the mutton and going by the recommendation, we called out for Murg Rahra. The best thing about Murg Rahra is usually that the gravy is not just oil or spices, but actually keema! 



The keema along with the mutton pieces makes up for a great main course item along with naans!
This Murg Rahra was again a brilliant choice! The pieces were sufficiently big, the gravy surrounding made it a little more drool worthy, and the aroma made us dig right into it.

Ended the meal with the best Ras Malai that I have had till date! Five stars to this sweet, unadulterated ending!



“In the present scenario, when everybody is running after various Global Cuisines, we came up with an Indianised Version because we believe it’s more permanent and not occasional like the other foods. One can try this at any day and any time" says Owner, Mr. Chaddha


Over the years, Pind Balluchi has excelled and has managed to remain on the top of the relevant list, and we couldn’t agree more with Mr. Chaddha!



WHERE:                Pind Balluchi
ADDRESS:            3rd Floor, Plot VC 3, Mahagun Metro Mall, Vaishali, Ghaziabad

Featuring Mariacommunion!

September 15, 2016 Posted by Rishnita Bhandari No comments


What is communion?

The christian worship services at which one dresses in white gowns, sports pretty accessories and follow a religious or spiritual fellowship.

For Christians all over the world, It is considered very auspicious! 

It usually leaves little girls who are to attend their first communion pretty excited as well as develops a sense of belonging and togetherness.

I still remember the time when I saw a Youtube video of a girl's first communion; all dolled up and gorgeous!


From getting the perfect dress, pretty veils, matching bags to getting those curls,

all of it is an experience to remember each time,
which is why, 
I am featuring Mariacommunion on the blog today!




One of its kind online marketing place which provides dresses suiting your requirements. Serving for about a decade, they have managed to build a satisfied customer base!

They have kept a variety of dresses, under the tags: White, Lace, Simple, long, with and without sleeves, First communion dresses.

and accessories like gloves, headpieces, bags and veils. 

Another thing that caught my eye while browsing was that,

They have mentioned the kind of Embellishment on each of their dresses, which makes it easier for the customer to know what they are looking at.

Though, they need to get more types of headpieces, and veils to match up the dresses that they have!
The price range is moderate, styles varying from classy to sober to royal!

A few of my favorite pieces from their current collection are featured as follows:




Love how a pair of gloves and a little flower along with cap sleeves gives a royal look to the whole, otherwise plain dress!


Check it out here: Organza Gown

Apollo White Dental, GK - Review

September 01, 2016 Posted by Rishnita Bhandari , , , , , , , , , 2 comments

APOLLO WHITE DENTAL

One of the most neglected things in our daily lifestyle is our, Teeth!

They work round the clock because we all are natural hoggers, and still get no proper care because we all are lazy people, here.


But this isn’t how it works. Our teeth need constant attention. Little things like brushing twice a day ought to be included in our daily routine.

As a teenager, I was really casual about my teeth. The price of which I had to pay when one of molar tooth got decayed. Nothing could be done as it was beyond treatment, all I was left was a big gap at the back of my mouth.
But, my ‘Dental Records’ wanted extensions. I got two other root canals done after, which still pains a lot every now and then!
The whole point of writing this down is to give you, the reader an idea about how paranoid I am when it comes to getting anything else done in there. I dread by the slightest pain in any part of the mouth.



I wanted to have an expert opinion, and the possible remedy for my dental issues, which was when I was introduced to APOLLO WHITE DENTAL

APOLLO WHITE DENTAL SPA is a 7-Star Dental Spa with world class amenities specially designed to meet the patient’s requirement with the utmost comfort. I was super impressed by how amazingly the clinic is done, with separate space for comfort and privacy, to complimentary services like Massages, Manicure and Pedicure, and other services, which is why it is called a Dental Spa!



Dr. Isha Singh did an initial examination of my teeth, followed by a full mouth digital X-Ray and when needed, separate X-Rays for each of my crown tooth. She did every possible test to get to the reasons behind the pain that kept coming back despite the fact that my crowns are pretty nicely done.



After this, she had my case consulted by Orthodontics, Dr. Niketa Wadhwa. Collectively, they told me what I needed to get done and what was wrong with my crowns.

Dr. Wadhwa treating another patient

The reason why I think they are a class apart?
  • ·         Treated by Experienced Consultants.
  • ·         Laser Precision procedures ensuring painless treatment.
  • ·         Top level hygiene: In house Triple Sterilization protocols.
  • ·         Setting a separate kid’s space with a dinosaur theme.
  • ·         Use of Superior Equipment.
  • ·         Complimentary services like Massage chairs, Hand and Feet Reflexology for both the patient and the person accompanying.
  • ·         Live One – One Chat with our specialist through social media.
  • ·         They even have their Mobile App wherein one gets sections like: Clear his/her Dental Queries, Book an Appointment, Receive Dental Tips, Find a Dentist, Locate a Clinic.

Cone Beam CT


Kid's Space


Dr. Isha understood my paranoia and did everything to ease me into the process of examination, and scaling of teeth. I felt like a kid, who forgot that Dental Visits are supposed to be painful and loaded with hectic follow ups.

Special mention to Samta Marwah who showed me around the property and explained how things are done at Apollo White Dental, worked out my appointment, and assisted Dr. Isha in finalizing the appropriate course of action for my decayed tooth.

Complimentary Services

Apollo White Dental has been awarded for:
Excellence Patient Service, 
Best Dental Hospital

STYLEWE: Where Everyone Has A Personal Designer


Gone are the days when designer products were restricted to the elites, and showrooms.
We live in an era where you can designer pieces right at your screen.

Thus,
Introducing: StyleWe
The name itself raises one's expectations.



STYLEWE is an online fashion shopping website which provides a platform to Independent Fashion Designers.
They enable the fashion designers to show case their brain child styles by making it available to customers worldwide.

I have probably become their latest fan!

While browsing through their designer wear, I could easily tell why they were a class apart.

  • Raunchy swimwear
  • Jumpsuits, Rompers, skirts, and even cool handbags.
  • All these at affordable costs.
    •  Money doesn't hurt when you get designer pieces like these!

Due to the above mentioned points, 
I got my hands on two of their items; one being a casual college wear, and another being an elegant party wear top!



These blouses came in a slider pouches, which makes it easier to keep and carry without any damage!


1. Half Sleeves Stripes Blouse

I instantly could imagine how cool and different it would look when sported in the college days.

I paired it with black jeans, and white sneakers!
The white sneakers complimented the white stripes well.



Another thing that makes it desirable is,
the stripes on the back! 
Front facing stripes are way too mainstream, which is why we needed this combination to come around!



Location Courtesy: Phone Booth Cafe

Buy it here:             Blue Stripes Blouse
Designer:                OneBuyE


2. Beige Chiffon Blouse

This one is a perfect party wear attire, paired with a pair of black jeans,

With just flower work, and lace going across the waist.

Sizzler Festival: Barcelos

July 08, 2016 Posted by Rishnita Bhandari , , , , , , , , , , , , , 1 comment

Barcelos,
The House of Peri has been known for its famous Peri Peri preparations;
along with the colored burger buns!
Red Burgers, Black Burgers; They have always given us something new to try!


It will soon be known for another thing,
which is a Sizzler Festival.

I happened to be at Barcelos, Hauz Khas Village a couple of days back to try their Sizzlers!


The interiors of the place have been done so nicely.
Situated at the second floor, right at the start of Hauz Khas Village,


It has a great open area, a pretty nice bar, along with high and low sitting.


Love how the Rooster is designed in the shaped of a big and fluffy 'B' representing Barcelos!

Getting back to the Sizzlers!

They have come up with a new range of sizzlers for this sizzler festival.
Divided in two categories,
Vegetarian (7 items) and non-vegetarian (6 items)

Mutton Keema Sizzler

Finely chopped keema done amazingly, with Sweet Corn, Broccoli, Mushroom, Onion and served on a bed on cabbages.
I love Keema rolls a lot,
and my excitement level was high since two great combo(s) were being mixed.


I loved it right at the first bite.

Peri Peri Chicken Sizzler

This sizzler was presented in a different manner, which was definitely delightful.


Chicken Breasts were cut into strips, rolled into, and stuffed with loads of mozzarella cheese put up on a mini stick!
The minute you cut open the roll, you are greeted with cheese flowing down!


Other sizzlers on the list:

Peri Peri Paneer Sizzler
Veg Kebab Sizzler
Paneer Trinchado Sizzler
Falafel Sizzler with Hummus
Soya Bean Keema Sizzler
Grilled Vegetables
Veg Seekh Kebab Sizzler

Peri Peri Chicken Sizzler
Mutton Kebab Sizzler
Chicken Trinchado Sizzler
Chicken Sizzler with Hummus
Mutton Keema Sizzler
Grilled Fish Sizzler

An experience like this is enough for listing Barcelos amongst the 'To Go places for Sizzlers'

Place To Be: Outlets at Hauz Khas, Khan Market, Gurgaon and Kolkata
When: A month long; starting from June 7th, 2016

Treat yourself with a Sizzler Fest this weekend.

"According to the 17th century legend, a pilgrim seeking food and water in Barcelos, was accused of stealing from a landowner. The pilgrim was sentenced to hang despite his protests of innocence. In a last minute appeal to the judge, who was enjoying a roasted rooster for dinner at the time, the pilgrim boldly stated, "If I am innocent, then that rooster will get up and crow!" Suddenly, a gorgeous scarlet-plumed cockerel rose from the plate, crowing loudly."
