International Tea Day 2022

Featured

Tea is not just a drink, but it holds love, culture and life. It is something that connects all of us in one single bond. In India, tea is something that starts your day, keeps you moving during the day, refreshes you in the evening and finally de-stress you after a long tiring day. Over a cup of tea we discuss everything on the globe. Relations are bonded forever over a cup of tea, the most important decisions are taken over a cup of tea and much more.

Just take some time out after you read this article over a cup of tea and imagine the hard work that has gone behind getting this charismatic drink in a cup to your hand. Take a sip and imagine the workers spending hours and month to carefully nurture the plantations, carefully plucked each leaf and done everything to give you this magical moment. Take a pick on this International Tea Day, to understand what the tea workers deliver to us, what is more than a drink to us.

How I survived during COVID-19 lockdown | Quick Recipe to make Chicken Roll

Recap of how I survived during COVID-19 nationwide lockdown.

I ensured to keep stock of frozen food during Lockdown because of Corona Virus spread as going out to buy veggies was not a simple task. Stayed at Home and made easy and quick wraps / rolls made from frozen food. Ensured not to consume anything raw during the spread of COVID-19, even onions should be sauteed! Instead of Chicken Seekh Kebabs you may use other frozen meats like Salami, Sausages, even Veg patty.

INGREDIENTS:

2 Wheat Roti / Tortilla, Frozen Seekh Kebabs, Sambel Chilli Garlic Sauce, half diced red onion, Maggi hot and sweet sauce, grate cheese if required to make it cheesy. #StayAtHome

Delicious Cafe Food in South Delhi

Have been craving to go out and it’s been many months that I have been to a cafe. Found this gem online and thought of trying. Whiz Cafe delivers in South Delhi. Food was packed and labelled well.

Three Bean salad – Loaded with high protein legumes and fresh vegetables. This was tangy and bursting with flavours, also quite filling. Just loved it! MUST TRY!!

IMG_3525

Chicken Sandwich – Toasted french bread was crisp and fresh stuffed with grilled chicken, lettuce, veggies and cheese. This sandwich was a serious deal and tasted top notch! Also it was served with potato wedges which were yum.

Spicy Aglio e Olio – Spaghetti cooked in olive oil with garlic, chilli flakes, fresh herbs and parmesan cheese. To be honest, I have not tasted anything so simple yet delicious! Being a hardcore non-vegetarian, this veg dish was an absolute winner. MUST TRY!!

IMG_3527

Wild Mushroom Risotto – Risotto was cooked with assorted mushroom and garnished with parmesan shavings topped with truffle oil. Not a fan of risotto so it was quite average.

Chocolate Cake – This cake just melted in my mouth. Best ending to this awesome meal.

I love how this cafe has maintained the quality of the food they serve. I am surely going to try more dishes from Whiz Cafe.

Also I’m glad to be a part of the #SupportLocalRestaurants and #VocalforLocal campaign. It’s time to support local restaurants and brands in these tough times.
