As you chill in the AC at home, our back kitchen at IFN tried this jil jil jigar thanda recipe which is like an AC for your mind, body and soul. If the video tempts you to whip one up for yourself, a little tip: be generous with the ice-cream, you will definitely need it. As an add on, we also have 10 coolers to keep you going through this month.

For our May cover, we spoke to actor, model, producer and social activist, Dia Mirza about her thoughts on child welfare and environmental conservation as we also learned what her comfort food is and her favourite go-to cuisine. We also saw the launch of the first episode of my new series, Currently Eating, where I explore the hows, whys and whats of viral and trending content on the internet. Alongside chef Sanjyot Keer, in the very first episode, we make a delightful mango boba falooda (and yes, the boba was made from scratch) as we get to know him and his venture, Your Food Lab a little better.
All those looking for a little healthy dose to add to their diet (especially after the last stint we pulled off with International No Diet Day) we have quick and easy recipes like oats uttapam and methi na thepla. And for those who enjoy a little side plate of fruit, may I suggest you try this watermelon basket?
From Nissin, an iconic cup noodles brand, releasing a eye shadow palette in the colours of their noodles to Karan Johar now entering the hospitality business with Neuma, it's been a little busy lately at IFN, keeping track of these new developments. I hope you're having a breezy summer though.
