3 Japhiyan Advertising Eid NestleFruitaVitals Press Ramadan Reviews Siblingbond Sip Positive TVC

Nestlé Fruita Vitals – The Sibling Bond

Nestlé Fruita Vitals giving a whole new meaning to 3 japhiyan this Eid. In their latest TVC Nestlé Fruita Vitals touches the right chords for all those who have siblings abroad, who anxiously wait for them on Eid, for the union and celebrations together.

The sibling bond is very beautifully presented in the TVC where the elder brother surprises the family by visiting on Eid and the younger brother is all so upset with him. We can all so relate to the complaints the younger brother has, not liking Facebook posts (we all have issues, don’t we?) not attending calls, not being there with the family on last Eid.
The concept of 3 japhiyan is again depicted in a beautiful way and with a beautiful message. No matter how upset you are with your sibling – just hug it out, the bond you share is precious than all the complaints and most importantly a hug fixes everything.
The lyrics are paired beautifully with the concept “dil nahin bhoolta dil ka yeh rasta” and we see the mother is happy and teary eyed seeing the love and bond his boys share.  It ends with the family on table having a good time and the elder brother being the elder brother annoying the younger one (so relatable). This TVC does justice to the brands concept of adding sweetness and affection to relationships “karwahat mein mithas”
There is no happiness greater than having your loved ones with you on occasions like Eid. If your sibling lives abroad and you have similar complaints, when they visit don’t forget to give them 3 japhiyan this Eid!
The brand, the creatives have done a great job in presenting an awesome concept depicting the sibling bond. The concept is paired perfectly with beautiful lyrics and enticing production value.
If you haven’t watched this awesome TVC yet, watch it now and share with your siblings.

Desserts & Sweets Eid Mango Quick & Easy

Mango Mousse Tart (No Bake ~ No Cook)

Mango-Mousse-Tart-TTTB

It’s Eid time .. we are still in the Eid break mode and this will continue throughout this week too, which is completely fine with us. We are having all kinds of delicious treats and totally loving it. This year around for Eid I wanted to make something different, not a traditional sweet dish (though I made one too) so I made this amazingly delicious Mango Mousse Tart


This recipe of Mango Mousse Tart is a No Cook and No Bake version, so you can imagine how simple it is to make and just look at it doesn’t it scream delicious? I know it does, because it is!!! If you want to make a dessert that’s really really simple and would earn you a lot of praise then you’ve got to make this Mango Mousse Tart and enjoy everything about it. Pssst… this is a great dish to impress your family, hubby or your in-laws 😀

Eid this year came in the summer season which happens to be a mango season as well and I couldn’t think of a better combo than this, Eid + Mangoes = Mango-licious Eid! Also, this Eid is known to be Meethi Eid (Sweet Eid) and generally a lot of sweet dishes are prepared, the sweetness just got doubled with the mangoes. We’ve been feasting on Mangoes and still can’t get enough of it. Everyone in my family LOVES mangoes. I thought of treating my family with this dessert and they all loved it.
Pakistani mangoes are known all around the globe for their distinct flavor, exquisite taste and sweetness. This is one fruit that is known to be The King of Fruits and is the best of its kind. We’re lucky to have all the variety of mangoes here in Pakistan and enjoy having it too. Love Mangoes!
You must have tried making Mango Mousse before too, since mangoes are in season everyone tries making all kinds of dishes with it and mango mousse is one them. But you might not have tried this recipe for Mango Mousse Tart. It has mango mousse but with a base of biscuits. Yes! that’s why we’re calling it a tart and that too a no cook and no bake one. 
Mango-Mousse-Tart-1-TTTB
Just look at it, its creamy, light, fluffy, fruity and delicious! You’ve got to try it to believe it and trust me you’ll have all the ingredients for this recipe in your kitchen already so go ahead and give it a try and enjoy this mango deliciousness!
And oh! I couldn’t find a loose bottom tart pan in my grocery store and since it was planned in the Eid break so wasn’t able to find it elsewhere too so I used 8 1/2 inch springform pan instead and the results were pretty amazing.

Mango Mousse Tart (No Bake – No Cook)
by July-22-2015
Mango Mousse Tart! A fruity, creamy and delicious combination of mangoes and a biscuit crust that’s absolutely mango-licious and its no bake and no cook too

Prep time: Total time: Yield: serves 10

Ingredients

For Tart (Biscuit Base)

  • 2 Packs digestive biscuits/graham crackers
  • 6 Tbsp Butter, melted

For Mango Mousse

  • 1 1/2 Cups Mango Puree
  • 2 Tbsp Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp Gelatin, unflavored
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Fresh Mango Cubes

For Topping

  • Fresh Mango Slices
  • Lemon Juice

Instructions

  1. Break the biscuits/crackers, add them to a blender or a food processor and blend until fine crumbs. Mix melted butter with the biscuit crumbs to a wet sand like consistency (add more butter if crumbs are too dry)
  2. Evenly press the biscuit mixture to bottom of the tart pan covering the bottom and up to the sides. Refrigerate it until further use.
  3. Peel and chop around 2 mangoes. Blend into a smooth paste using a blender. Now add sugar and lemon juice to the mango puree
  4. In a small bowl add water and microwave for 20 seconds, add gelatin powder to it. Mix and dissolve completely. Now add gelatin to the prepared mango puree, mix and refrigerate for 30 minutes
  5. Whisk the cream and 2 Tbsp castor sugar, until it forms soft peaks. Add the mango mixture to a bowl and fold the cream to it gently until its mixed well and no cream/ mango streaks are seen
  6. For the mango topping, peel 2 mangoes or more to cover the entire tart, make two large slices as close to the pit as possible. Then cut very thin mango slices length wise
  7. The tart should be set by now. Add mango mousse to the center of the set tart crust and then begin to spread out evenly across surface, leaving a small perimeter around the crust untouched by mango mousse
  8. Line the sides of the crust with mango slices, letting the edges slightly overlap so that the slices stand up and stay curved. Then start the next row of mangoes, placing mango slices in the spots in between two mango slices from the previous outer row. This overlapping pattern will make a rose like pattern
  9. For the center simply roll up a mango slice and form the center of a rose. Squeeze some lemon juice on the top mango slices to prevent oxidation of mangoes
  10. Refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours or more to set it completely.Serve chilled

Notes

  1. Mousse can be prepared without gelatin as well. For a Gelatin free version you can use china grass (agar-agar) or can completely avoid using it
  2. You can use store bought canned mango puree instead of making your own

The old adage goes “Distance makes the heart grow fonder” and when it’s your near and dear ones who are miles away from you the heart not only grows fonder it also waits and longs for being with them.
