And pure refrigerating and gastronomic genius.
Last evening in F.C. Road, the venue for Pune’s unending carnival, R and I were lucky enough to taste Tawa Ice-cream. Tawa Pulao and Pau-Bhaji, make way! Ice-cream is the latest thing you can make on a tawa (frying pan).
Scores of people watched transfixed as the creative geniuses rolled up the chunks of snowy icecream into Swiss-roll like, well, rolls. It was incredibly neat. When we had had our fair share of exploring the umpteen street food items on offer at FC – they now have glorious appe and thalipeeth as well – we managed to find a clearing in the crowd. There, atop the heated tawa, our ice-cream was made live and served to us topped with black salt and chilli flakes. What with air balloons rising in the background and stars shining in a late weekend sky, it was magical.
I’d say, hands down, Tawa Icecream is among the most interesting things you can make on a tawa. Have you ever tried this?

I guess, I’m gonna try for sure by next weekend! ☺
Do, do! Tell me how you liked it. 🙂
This sounds really interesting ! How was the taste ?
It was quite delicious. But it took me a while to get over the fact that I was eating ice cream with black salt. 😛
That is fascinating. Sort of like fried ice cream in the sense that it completely defies the logic of ice cream.
Yes, exactly! I love how some people experiment with food to produce such beautiful results.
Near Sagar Arcade!! Jaani pehchani swadish taste hai yaar. Stop making me cry and miss Pune. Ah! Those mouth watering golas, shakes, Tawa Pulao one favorite:)
Oh my, oh my. You made me crave for FC Road street food again, early in the morning. 😛
Will send you some Tawa Pulao, fret not. 😉
Tawa* stupid auto correct 😉
Haha 😀 Well, like the name suggests, this is ice-cream made instantly on a tawa/frying pan!
