Normally you get varieties of flavoured yogurt in market however, Epigamia has brought unique range of Greek yogurts. Their product range has some popular and unique flavours including Alphonso Mango, Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Banana, Vanilla Beans, Natural and Green apple.

  • low fat, low carbs

I loved all the flavours of Greek yogurt from Epigamia whereas our little one picked up her favourite strawberry flavour. What I loved about Epigamia products that each flavour contains original fruit pulp which gives you the exact taste of the fruit in the yogurt. They don't use preservatives or colors or synthetic flavours.

They have another exciting product which is Snack pack for your choti bukh. We feel hungry in between our big meals, in this condition you can't concentrate on your work.

If someone doesn't have a sweet tooth, no issues they can try Jalapeno Greek Yogurt or Cream & Onion Greek Yogurt with Barley Puffs.

Eastern Condiments - Ethnic & Ready to Cook Spice Range

Spice powders play a key role in your kitchen. Isn't it true? Earlier people used to buy whole spices and after several process they used to grind at home. Now the concept has totally changed because of our busy lifestyle. Hardly we get time to do all the steps and make our own spice powders at home. Though I prefer to make home ground spices, however do not get time. Hence, I have to rely on the store bought spice powders sometimes. I prepare cumin and coriander powder at home but I always buy turmeric powder from a reliable brand and for that I use Eastern Condiments, India's No.1 Spice Company.

When my favourite spice brand contacted me for their product review, I was really happy. They had sent a box of spicy-happiness to my home :-).


The box contained Kitchen King Masala, Bramhin Sambar Masala, Noodles Masala, Chat Masala and two ready to cook masala (Shahi Paneer Masala & Methi Mutter Malai Masala). The box also contaned a cute jute bag.



My daughter loves noodles so started with noodles masala. I must tell the taste of the masala is balanced and gives nice taste to your regular noodles. Normally, in store bought noodles masala, garlic flavour is dominating, however Eastern's Noodles Masala tastes really good.



Next we tried my favourite Shahi Paneer Dish using Eastern's Shahi Paneer Masala. A restaurant style dish will be ready in just three step cooking. For preparing Shahi Paneer Masala, you need Shahi Paneer Masala Entire Pack + 150 g Paneer + 150 g Tomatoes + 1 cup Milk.


If you are late from office or sudden guest comes to your place or you are in hurry to go some where or any urgent situation or you are simply lazy this ready to cook masala can help to make a delicious dish quickly.  We like the taste of Shahi Paneer Masala as well as Methi Mutter Malai Masala.

Our next target was Brahmin Sambar Masala. Sambar is my husband's favourite and this time I used Brahmin Sambar Masala and packed the sambar in lunch box. Evening he said "sambar was too good and I could get the authentic taste".Then I told him the secret that I have used Eastern's Brahmin Sambar Masala.




I am using Kitchen king masala in our regular curry dishes and it is equally good. I am quite satisfied with the taste and quality of these spices and thankful to Eastern Condiments for sending me this spicy gift. In their Ready to Cook, they also have Veg Kadai Masala, Butter Chicken Masala, Paneer Butter Masala, Dal Makhni Masala, Palak Paneer Masala.

Switch on to a new life with the Usha InfinitiCook Halogen Oven: Product Review






First time when I saw INFINITICOOK USHA Halogen Oven I could not control myself to take an opportunity to use this wonderful kitchen appliance. USHA team swiftly arranged a demo and gave me chance to experience this new generative appliance. You must be thinking this is a same like other ovens like Microwave or OTG. Let me tell you this is completely different from these ovens. By name only you can understand that this oven uses halogen light to provide radiant heat and thereby heating the air through infrared waves generated by the light. The oven helps to cook the food thoroughly by circulating the air using its fan. INFINITICOOK is one cooking solution for all including baking, air frying with no oil, grilling, braising, roasting, toasting, BBQ, slow cooking, thawing, air drying and many more.

INFINITICOOK ™ is very handy and unlike other ovens it requires very less space. Body of the halogen oven is made of glass where you can place the food to be cooked. Hence it helps user to visually monitor the food and user can manually stop the oven when the food looks perfectly cooked. 

USHA team has nicely explained about the oven and quickly they prepared garlic bread during their demo. At a time you can toast almost 10 breads and this saves time as well as electricity. 

This halogen oven has another advantage. You do not have to remember specific temperature and timing for a specific dish. Temperature for fish, cupcakes, pizza, air drying, etc has already set, you just have to press the required button and start it. There is a sterilize button too and you can sterilize the glass container and other attachments before cooking.


As soon as I got the oven I started my experiment with non-veg items. I prepared murg malai kabab which turned out just awesome. I added only 2 teaspoon of oil while marinating 400gms chicken and it turned out perfect. 

My next experiment was an easy one but you consume lot of calories when you eat them because it is deep fried item. Yes I am talking about famous French fries. I bought the frozen French fries packet and cooked them without oil in INIFINITICOOK. This is a simple example that you can easily cut down excess oil consumption by using halogen oven. 



From French fries I moved to pizza, another family favourite dish. Like other dishes it turned out up to the mark. 

How can I forget baking cakes in halogen oven? I prepared mango muffins topped with black raisins were equally good. 

People who are planning to buy an oven; I would recommend INFINITYCOOK to them as you can use it for multiple purposes. I am totally satisfied with it and I am sure it will take cooking to a new level.

iD Fresh Food Launched - New Ranges of #EatHomeMade Meal

iD Fresh Food is a popular enterprise who started in 2005 with home made Idly-Dosa Batter. iD Idly-Dosa batter is a great product and can replace your homemade batter when you are in hurry. Now recently they a launched a new range of #EatHomeMade Meal. I was lucky to receive a wonderful basket of their home-made meal. 


The hamper was handed over to me by their PR agency. It was very nicely packed as a hamper. Who does not like to get a gift and for a foodie this is the perfect hamper. 


iD Fresh Food has come up with a very good range of #EatHomeMade meal. The hamper consists of following products:
  • Just Heat Malabar Parota
  • Just Heat Whole Wheat Parota
  • Just Heat Whole Wheat Chapati
  • Just Heat Mini Parota
  • Chettinad Tomato Chutney
  • Chettinad Coriander Chutney
I was very much excited to taste each of the product and I started with my favourite chapati. Each pack contains 10 chapatis and you just have to heat them up in skillet for few seconds and they are ready to eat. 

Chapatis are too soft and taste just like homemade as they do not add any preservatives. My family really enjoyed the chapatis with curry (Curry Prepared by me). You can also eat chapatis with any of the chutneys. 
Just Heat Whole Wheat Chapati

Next I tried the famous Malabar Parota. Each pack contains 5 Malabar Parotas. You can enjoy your weekend meal eating home-made food. You just have to heat the parota adding ghee or refined oil. Malabar Parota was really yummy and we just finished off eating this with Just heat coriander chutney. Each layers of the parota are well defined just like home-made one.

If someone thinks I will not able to finish 5 parota, then you also have a choice. You can choose Just Heat Mini Parota which contains 4 small parota in a pack. Even you can pack the mini parotas in tiffin.

People who are little cautious about their health and want to avoid eating foods prepared from maida, iD Fresh Food has not disappointed them too. You can try their Just Heat Whole Wheat Parota. Each pack contains 5 parota. You have to heat them adding ghee or oil. However, I liked the taste of Malabar Parota or Mini Parota compared to Whole Wheat Parota.

Just Heat Whole Wheat Parota

Finally, its time to taste the dip or chutneys. Heat little oil and add curry leaves, mustard seeds and asafoetida and add the chutney, heat up. Your chutney is ready to serve. Both chutneys are equally good. You can eat them with any dish starting from idly, dosa and even with parota or chapatis.

Chettinad Coriander Chutney


Chettinad Tomato Chutney
iD Fresh Food Products do not contain preservatives, hence it is important to store them in cool and dry place or in refrigerator. Try this new range of #EatHomeMade meal.  I would like to thank iD Fresh Food for sending this hamper for review.

Product Review: Paper Boat's Ready-to-serve Iced Tea Line

Who does not like to receive a gift?? Especially during this festive season...If the gift is suspiciously delicious, you will just love it!!

Wait wait...No more suspense, let me reveal the story of suspiciously delicious gift..
 Yes, it was a box from Paper boat with their newly launched flavourful Ready-to serve Iced tea line. When I have been asked to write a review about their newly launched iced tea line, I did not think twice before saying yes because I am a big fan of flavoured teas. It was really my pleasure to receive such a lovely and nicely packed gift. When I opened the box, more surprise was waiting for me. I was touched to see their packing and excited to taste the flavourful iced tea line.

There were two flavours inside - Ginger Lemon Tea and Tulsi Tea. I like both the flavours. 

These are iced tea line, so I kept them in refrigerator to get little chilled. Now its time for tasting...
Ginger Lemon Iced Tea
First, I tried my personal favourite Ginger Lemon Tea and they were right. According to their claim I could realize that it is brewed properly otherwise it is quite impossible to get the real flavour of tea. I have tasted other packed tea drinks where I could not make out the flavour of ginger or lemon. HOwever, both the flavours are prominent in Paper Boat's Ginger Lemon Tea. 

Tulsi Tea

I like tulsi tea but not a great fan of it. When I tasted Paper Boat's tulsi tea, it changed my perception. It is equally good in taste just like ginger-lemon tea. Tulsi tea also has the flavour of lemon which makes a big difference in taste compared to other packed tulsi tea drinks available in market. 

Overall, it was great experience and happy to see a ready-to-serve iced tea line which fulfilled my expectation level. It would be a great product during summer. If you forget to put it in refrigerator, no worries you can serve with ice cubes. As their tag line says 'tune to go on a journey', you can easily carry them in a trip and enjoy it totally. If you are a tea-lover, I would suggest you to taste Paper Boat's flavourful Ices Tea Line and I am sure you will love it. These teas are now available across major super markets!
