Kylis- an Experience

banner002a

Hindware, one of the leading brands in sanitary ware has recently launched a new product, Kylis. I got to know about kylis when I went out searching for a perfect product for my newly furnished bathroom. I was looking for something classy and edgy and that’s when I found this new fitting. I and my parents have always been a Hindware loyalist; they have been in the market from over 55 years and unlike many other brands, have proved their mark.

The all new Kylis, together with an illustrious look and outstanding quality is here to take a lead in bathroom solutions products. The exquisite design and chrome finish of Kylis compels you to take a second look that leaves a lingering impression.

The sharp and gripping features give Kylis an edge over other contemporary designs.  Minimalistic in approach, Kylis elegantly compliments the environment they are placed in and create a perfect harmony.

We often spend a lot of time and effort in designing our house but often miss out on bathrooms and their equipment. This is where we go wrong, bathrooms are as important as any other part of the house.

Before telling more about kylis, let me tell you a little more about Hindware and its background.

HSIL Limited, vastly recognized by its brand Hindware, a leading name in the Indian market is a company driven by innovation. Its complete focus on crafting unforgettable bathing experiences, developing contemporary bathroom solutions for over five decades with products that make life better has set new trends each year.

A company that has such a vast background can hardly go wrong with their products and their quality. While choosing a bathroom solution I blindly vouch for Hindware and I can assure everyone out there that they can never go wrong.

Inspired by finest of styles and convenience, Kylis is here to make a stark entry and steal the show. The sharp and gripping features give Kylis an edge over other contemporary designs. The lustrous shine and elegant cut together with everlasting quality of Kylis offer optimum convenience without compromising on style and value. With a very enticing feel and extremely stylish looks, Kylis defies the odds and ticks every box to fit in the day-to-day a la mode lifestyle.

Kylis, with a combination of style and geometric design fits perfectly into your personal space allowing ample flexibility and movement in terms of space. Minimalistic in approach, they elegantly compliment the environment they are placed in and create a perfect harmony.

 

 

 

Getafix- guilt free indulgence #NewInTown

Getafix

Getafix

When I first got the invite to review/visit Getafix in Greater kailash market, I was in dilemma due to its image of a “Cafe that serves Healthy Food” or at least that’s what I thought initially. But soon I decided to finally go and visit a place that claims to have tasty and healthy food. Let me tell you one thing, we foodies have bad eating habits especially when you’re a food blogger, you get to eat a lot of junk and oily food. So this time it was a pleasant surprise to get an invite for trying a different sort of food.

There are way too many cafe’s in the market these days which claim themselves to be serving healthy/organic/guilt free food but how many out of all those are worth trying is the question. Getafix, claims nothing out of all these characteristics that I’ve mentioned above. They simply serve you what they would want to have without feeling guilty, of course they have kept taste and options in mind, so that they don’t bore the customers with repetitive stuff. With teal color brick walls one one side and a small book shelf at the entrance, this place will make you fall in love with itself as soon as you enter. At least it did made me fall in love with it and music is another highlight apart from food. The owners Dhruv and Aanandita have got some amazing taste in both music and food.

Getafix has a lot to offer you, from choice of pancakes to omelettes and appetizers to freshly made pastas and pizzas. To start with I ordered pancakes with banana and honey. Dhruv, the founder of the cafe told me the story behind these pancakes, so initially they did 30%  whole wheat and 70% oats but it didn’t come out as expected and as they just cannot compromise on the taste part, they decided to find a way out and came up with this unique way of making thin pancakes and filling it with ricotta and nuts and the choice of topping/filling you wanted. My verdict- these pancakes are simply refreshing than your usual fluffy pancakes which eventually become heavy on your stomach. They serve the pancakes with 3 dips, honey, maple syrup and fruit compote. A MUST HAVE!

Pancakes

You always thought of having smoothies but couldn’t, because the ingredients and look of it was enough to fill your stomach? Well if that was the case then try the smoothies here and I bet you’ll come for more next time. The cafe has an extensive menu of juices and smoothies, all being freshly prepared with seasonal fruits. They do have some options which might contain canned pulp or fruits but they do not appreciate it and hence, they have variety of seasonal fruits to interchange with the existing option in a particular smoothie or juice. I opted for Berranana Fix and my friend opted for Khal Strawgo Fix. Berranana Fix has Banana, Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberry and Yoghurt and Khal Stawgo fix has got Mango, Strawberry, Basil and Yoghurt. As I told you above that they do not suggest using nonseasonal fruits, so the mango was changed to kiwi and trust me each of them tasted better than the other.

Smoothies and Juices

After my fix of smoothies and pancake, I ordered Air fried fish and chips and Mexican Bowl. I know a lot of people who swear by the air fried dishes but this was my first time and let me assure you, the fish and chips are super! Brilliant in taste, perfectly cooked and almost zero oil. The food here is neither too spicy nor bland because I know after hearing the word ‘Healthy’ most of us associate with the word ‘Bland’ or ‘Tasteless’ but Getafix will change your mindset and notion about healthy food being tasteless, as every dish here is as tasty as any other oily, heavy dish or maybe better.

The Mexican bowl has, steamed vegetable mexican rice with grilled veggies, black beans and salsa style sauce. Another filling dish which is not at all heavy and perfectly balanced in terms of flavour.

Last but not the least, my meals are incomplete without having desserts, so I decided to go for Diet Vanilla Pound cake and yet again, I wasn’t disappointed at all. The lovely people at Getafix packed me a slice of carrot cake as well which was another surprise. After carrying it for good 1 hour and another half hour of delay, I finally ate it and now it’s added to my list of best carrot cakes in Delhi.

These dimsums were good in flavour but due to some unforeseen circumstances in the kitchen that day, these dimsums couldn’t be filled properly and were a little overcooked.

Drool Over North Indian Food #Sponsored

shutterstock_310379780

North Indian cuisine is a very important part of Indian cuisine, from the regions of North India, which includes a major part of India, covering states like: Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Delhi and West-Central Uttar Pradesh (Awadh and Braj).

There are a number of variations in North Indian cuisine depending on the region and its background like: Awadhi, Bihari, Bhojpuri, Kumauni, Cuisine of Kashmir, Mughlai, Punjabi, Rajasthani and Cuisine of Uttar Pradesh. Out of all these cuisines, there are a few dishes that are common amongst the people of all regions. A certain dishes have been listed or chosen as comfort food or favourites, if I say so.

shutterstock_101790181

Delhi has its own North Indian specialties and Butter Chicken happens to be one of them. You get this particular dish almost everywhere and with all these places making their version of Butter Chicken, it makes all the more fascinating to try it. But some restaurants remain an all time favourites like Moti Mahal Deluxe.

Butter Chicken or murgh makhani is an Indian dish which has its roots in Punjab cuisine. It’s a dish of chicken in mildly spiced curry sauce. Apparently this dish was developed by Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi.

Moti Mahal is a chain of restaurants with over 120 franchises in India and around the world. Moti Mahal waa founded in 1920 in Peshawar, Pakistan. It was the first to introduce tandoori cuisine, butter chicken and dal makhani to the world.

The story of Moti Mahal dates back to c. 1920 when Mokha Singh Lamba started a small eatery in Peshawar, Pakistan. Kundan Lal Jaggi worked for Mokha Singh in Peshawar, Pakistan. Moti Mahal was the first to dig up a tandoor right in the middle of the eatery and since then Peshawar was introduced to the culinary art of tandoori chicken by them. This was a success and soon there was in demand for Tandoori at social gatherings and wedding feasts where they would use an improvised tandoor.

Being a Delhite and a true foodie I happen to have foodpanda App in my phone for those last minute food cravings and I can vouch for the delivery and quality of food prepared by Moti Mahal, especially their Butter Chicken. The quality is not compromised and so is the quantity. Both the things are maintained in the delivery and you will feel as good as eating in their restaurant.

foodpanda has made it too easy for all the foodies to get their favourite dishes at their doorsteps without being afraid of the quality or other such factors.  foodpanda Cuisine Festival has a lot more to offer. Log in and explore flavours and facts about your favourite dishes.

So, Rajouri Garden which has array of restaurants, yet again floored us with its newest offering called The Westside Story, located in the heart of West Delhi. This new kid on the block offers plethora of cuisine from Indian to Burmese, Italian to Chinese. The interiors are elegant as well as exquisitely ornate.

In an extraordinary warm day which calls for a nice refreshing drink, Virgin Cucumber Mojito was a perfect treat. Lemon and fresh mint give this pretty green non-alcoholic punch a mojito flavor. The cucumber lends this drink a beautiful fresh scent and taste. Next came, the Som tom which is a spicy papaya salad that will light your taste buds on fire. This fiery little salad is one of Thailand’s best known culinary export but it didn’t taste right here for me.

Moving on to the appetizers, Chinese Button Mushroom was crispy and had a sweet tangy taste, while on the other hand, salty Crispy American Corn tossed with assorted peppers and chilies features an outburst of crunch and flavor. Crunchy Cheesy Broccoli served with chili mayonnaise was again delicious. Cheese creates a flavorful blanket for these crispy broccoli bites that are the perfect side on. Following the starters, was the perfect Indian snack, Karare Dahi Ke Kebab, which is an infusion of hung curd with indain spices. A must try for vegetarians.

Coming to the mains, the highlight of the lunch was the ‘Mushroom Rarah Pizza’. With the blend of makhani sauce it had a very Indian taste and is now one of my favorite. I judged this amalgamation success and enjoyed every bite. Burmese curry with Steamed Rice was authentically done and had the divine flavors of coconut milk, caramelized onions and fried garlic. Paneer Rogangosh is a good option with garlic or traditional naan that was up to the snuff and delicious.

Overall, the food is delicious, the freshness of the ingredients and the superior skills of the chef shine through in every dish and the décor and ambience are inimitable!

How Peppertap can be useful in your day to day life

PepperTap-logo

So one fine day I planned to make this dish and realized that I didn’t have enough material at home n worse I had no time to go out and buy stuff, thanks to Peppertap app in my phone, this problem got sorted.

I quickly opened my phone and ordered all the products within minutes rather seconds and in another 15minutes I had all the required material at my door step. Not just the material came on time but also the products were fresh and neatly packed. Just like this, another day I was at a friend’s house and she wouldn’t get this particular shampoo and I suggested her to try on this app and voila! She found it on Peppertap and it saved her time as well since she didn’t have to go out to especially buy a shampoo.

With an app like this half of my grocery problems have been solved, especially for the days when there are guests coming and you have to go out for buying veggies but then you won’t get the fresh ones or they are finished already. This app turns out to be a savior.

And not just me, even my mother swears by the efficiency of the app and people behind it. While making cake one day she found out that her cocoa powder had expired and the nearby store didn’t have it as well, she called me up and asked what to do and that is when I introduced her to this magical thing. She instantly downloaded the app and decided to order it. And within few minutes her problem was solved and all thanks to the lovely people of this app.

I must say, apps like these are a blessing in disguise. Not only for the people who are working and stay alone but also for a normal everyday household.
