Holi is round the corner and the sweltering heat too has come along. Ice creams and coolers seem to be the answer to cope with this weather. Add to it the flavours synonymous with Holi- thandai. Naturally then, it is a winning combination.
Affordably priced, Papa Cream offers two special ubiquitous flavours to combat the summer heat and get refreshed.
I was fortunate to drop by at the Oshiwara outlet to witness the making of these flavours.
Thandai Ice Cream:
One of the most traditional flavours of Holi is being served at Papacream in the form of a delicious scoop of ice cream. Made with heavy milk, poppy seeds, cashewnuts and infused with cardamom and saffron, topped with a light sprinking of almonds, rose petals and pistachios – this is perfect for your after playing Holi and gorging on a heavy meal. Of course I decided to indulge myself, even before Holi begins. The thandai flavour was distinct but not overpowering. Creamy with superior quality ingredients. That’s my verdict.
Single scoop Rs 100
Double scoop Rs 185
Tub Rs 450
Kolkata Meetha Paan with Gulkhand:
The paan lover that I am, I had to try this one too. And a Kolkata meetha paan in an ice cream form? Irresistible The first bite and the leafy Mukhwaas with Gulkhand enveloped my mouth. Sweet, spicy and all things nice. I was instantly rejuvenated.
The rich texture of the luscious ice cream appealed to me instantly and without a doubt, this flavour for me was the winner this Holi.
Single scoop: Rs 120
Double scoop: Rs 200
Tub: Rs 470
The simple but aesthetic presentation of the ice cream, by the young lady at the Oshiwara Papa Cream outlet adds to the experience.
So if you are looking to satiate your sweet cravings this Holi, opt for these new flavours from Papa Cream and given their reputation for quality and taste you will certainly get in to the spirit of the festival.
