Tasted Entire Menu From Mojo Pizza

Mojo Pizzas have gained immense popularity over few months. I feel very lucky to be one among the blogger tasting review team.  All pizzas are to appeal Indian taste buds, I got to taste the entire menu over 3 months we thoroughly enjoyed every pizza.

Every pizza is a 10 inch base. The base itself is slightly fluffy loaded with double cheese and toppings of choice.

I also tasted the starters and desserts like garlic breads, chicken wings, lava cakes and brownie. Each order was 1500/- its very affordable compared to other pizza brands. Two 10 inch pizzas can easily fill up 5 adults.

PRANA (Organic artscafe / Restaurant / Bakery) @NewBel Road-Bangalore

Newly opened Prana cafe at newbel road, hosted me for lunch, I was excited to visit here since we stay very close to the cafe. This organic cafe come store is unique and has very minimal decor yet feels homely and cosy. They have also setup a organic store selling cold pressed oils, millets, spices and handcrafted toys.

I liked the ambience here its open and has various seating options starting from ground level seats to reading nook and communal table. They serve only organic millet based dishes apart from few rice based dishes and the dishes are seasoned with pink salt. I got to taste millet soup, appam with coconut milk, rice puttu with kadala curry, multi grain chapathi with mixed vegetable curry, Ragi modak, aloo tikki and southindian meals finally ending with a moong dhal payasam.

Food was slightly bland for us, but people who have a flair for healthy food will enjoy the menu.  Meals was worth trying limited veggies but the sambar and rasam was in large quantity  white rice and chapati is unlimited.

Tips for purchasing and cleaning mushrooms:
Mushrooms are truly a delicacy but the art of purchasing and cleaning mushroom is something I have learnt over the years. When purchasing button mushrooms make sure the bulb or the bud of the mushroom is tightly closed to the steam.

Since super markets store it in large cold air coolers the mushroom turn brown in color. Make sure majority of the mushrooms are white and are not discoloured. I dont prefer to just wipe the mushroom with damp cloth and then cook it, I always wipe the excess dirt and wash twice before cooking.

After washing away majority of dirt I tend to leave the mushrooms in a colander and allow excess water to drain. Once the water has drained I line a plate with cotton cloth then spread the mushrooms on the cloth and allow to drain further. Please make sure you start this cleaning process 2 hours ahead of time before preparing your dish.

Method:
Chop the button mushrooms into quarters or half depending on size. Heat a pan with 1 tbsp coconut oil add all the ingredients mentioned for masala paste fry till the spices splutter and onion has softened, remove from flame allow to cool on counter and transfer to a mixer jar grind to form a smooth paste we can add splash of water while grinding. 

Heat a wok or heavy bottom pan on medium flame. Add 2 Tbsp coconut oil start adding the cumin and fennel allow to splutter add chillies and fry for 30 seconds.

Add onions to the tempered oil along with chopped tomato fry till onion turns transparent. Add chilly powder, coriander powder, and turmeric powder fry till raw flavor reduces from the masalas.

Add masala paste to the onion masala along with mushroom and peas stir and fry all the ingredients for a minute. Add 1/4 cup water cover and cook till the mushrooms soften and peas have cooked.

We can pre cook the peas and add once the mushoom has cooked. Mushrooms release lot of moisture place on high flame to reduce the moisture incase the gravy is bit watery. 

Once the gravy has reduced adjust salt as per taste stir bring to rapid boil remove from flame garnish with chopped mint, coriander, pepper powder and lime juice...Serve hot with roti or rice 😉

Sheraton Hotels and Resorts Celebrates 80 Years of Going Beyond

We were a select group of bloggers invited to celebrate "Go Beyond 80 Years"  and Christmas Carnival, followed by Master Class in Ginger Bread House Making/Baking - Property Tour showcasing the various festive decorations and inclusions, ending with sunday brunch at FEAST.

Go Beyond was inspired by Sheraton’s associates and the heart they bring to their service, which is why they were the subjects in the new creative. 

The Go Beyond campaign showcases actual Sheraton associates interacting with guests in small but meaningful ways that have great impact on a traveller’s experience. In one such execution, a Sheraton associate eagerly dives to the bottom of the hotel pool to retrieve a child’s precious stuffed bunny. 

In another situation at the Sheraton Grand Bangalore a Guest lost valuable bike spare which was very light the room service must have mistaken as garbage and cleaned the room as usual. Once the team got notice of the lost packet, security team took efforts to trace the garbage van near to Mysore and retrieved the lost packet.
   
“Sheraton’s Go Beyond will resonate with guests and associates especially in Asia Pacific where service excellence is an intrinsic part of the Asian hospitality mindset. With a strong portfolio of more than 120 Sheraton hotels and resorts in this region, They look forward to the brand’s continual growth, cementing Sheraton as the global hotel brand of choice.”


Tour started at life size ginger bread house...
 Inside the edible ginger bread house was a store filled with baked goodies where the customer can choose a single cake or put togeather a basket along with choice of wine, chocolates, cookies and cakes as per choice.
