As you say ice cream is something that reminds you of all the happiness, what was it that motivated you to open your own ice cream parlor? What’s the story behind its name and the project?
At an early age, ever since I learned about the concept of entrepreneurship – it’s the only thing that excited me as much as the food did. Being able to create content full-time- definitely gave me that confidence and push to start Indu Ice Cream. Ice cream specifically because- from all the food memories I have as a child eating ice cream and even the first time I ate gelato it really stayed with me. Experiencing those sensations, flavors, and textures is vividly etched in my memory. I wanted to create a product that is new & refreshing yet somewhat familiar and nostalgic. We chose the name Indu ice cream because the whole idea of the brand is to fuse flavors of India into ice cream. It’s linking back to the roots & heritage of India.
How has the response been and what more do you want to do, explore more ice cream flavors, or bring in something new and crazy to the store?
The response has been incredible! I think people are really enjoying the flavors since it’s something familiar to them yet so refreshing! I definitely want to do more flavors and more formats of ice cream. My idea for the future is to directly work with farmers in India and showcase unique products- coffee, chocolate, fresh fruit, etc through ice cream. We currently have a set delivery radius for the ice cream from our delivery kitchen- hoping to expand to other parts of the city and hopefully the country!
If you were to suggest someone try a flavor from Indu’s, which one would it be and why?
It’s so difficult to choose one! I think every flavor is so unique and it depends on my mood which I would pick. But one of my all-time favorites is the Mango Shrikhand. The flavors are really fresh and bright. It’s the perfect balance between the tartness from the Shrikhand and freshness from Alphonso mangoes- it’s finished with a mango saffron swirl and chopped pistachios!
The flavors from Saloni’s kitchen have really got me drooling and I can’t wait to really try out the amazing combinations that she has put up. Do check out her content and try the amazing recipes that she posts.
