Why Beauty Services are Good vs. Salon/Spa?

Think of a Sunday afternoon when you are relaxing after a long weekend when you suddenly realize your pedicure or manicure is long overdue. The salon you normally visit is too far away and you are too tired to drive up there and get it done. What would you do in such a situation? Either you will feel to skip it or there would be an immediate thought that if the person who does your manicure could come to your house and provide the same service, it would be so much more relaxing. Fortunately, now that is possible. Mobile beauticians have become very popular these days and their services are equally good as the ones you get in the salons. In fact, many people are also of the opinion that the beauty services they get in their houses are more comfortable because they need not worry about others peeking at them. You are on your own and everything is personalized.
Beauty Services vs Salon/Spa – a Comparative Study

Here is a sneak peek into some of the basic reasons why beauty services are better than the saloon or spa centers. Check these out and get inspired to call your salon right in your home from now on:

Beauty services – a big time saver

One of the main reasons why beauty services at homes have become the need of the hour is because they save a lot of time and energy. You do not have to go to the salon, but get the same services at your home. All you need to do is to make a call, or visit the online portals and get the appointment confirmed with the expert beauticians using the NearBuy promo code. Just mention the services you will need and the respective salon will send their professionals in time. The time to go and return from the salon will be saved and so will the waiting time for your appointment. These things do not happen when you physically visit the salon. That is why more and more people are opting for beauty services from their homes.

Why get massages elsewhere when you can get them at home?

You have been to spas and got your weekly massage done, but somewhere deep down it was not that satisfying because you had to come back home again travelling a long way and then do the household chores. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get the same massage at home? That would be the ultimate relaxation, isn’t it? There are many spas that provide massage services at homes for people who don’t want to visit spas and get the massage. Or maybe your mother wants a massage and she is more than 70 years old. The best thing would be to book an appointment with a masseuse so that she can come down to your place and massage her properly.

Overall verdict

Spas and salons will continue to exist and it is always good to visit these places if you want to save some money. But if you prefer comfort over money, then the beauty services for homes would be the most appropriate choice for you.

Booking home appointments for getting beauty treatments done may be considered as a luxury, but when you have the money to spend, then why not! After all, you would also have to spend a lot on travelling to the salon or spa. So, instead of spending on transport, spend the same money on your comfort and get the best services right at home. Because, comfort always comes first over money!

How to make Mutton Curry?

Mutton curry is an Indian curry dish which formally originated in the state of Bengal. It is delicious, soft tendered chunk of lamb meat in Indian style with spiced onion and tomato gravy. Mutton curry is also known by various other names, some people call it as Goat curry, some call it as kosha mangsho and lamb curry.
The mutton curry may be deliciously served with steamed white rice or it can also be served with raji, a cereal. Originally in earlier days’ mutton curry used to be prepared by heating it on fire in a large pot. But now the cooking style has been changed a little, in spite of using a large pot it may now be cooked in a pressure cooker or slow cooker.

There are various variations of mutton curry, some of them are discussed below:
       Railway mutton curry:
This variation of mutton curry is a British Raj colonial-era dish that was served on long distance trains. This dish was used to be served with the dinner rolls. If look in the present scenario, some restaurants used to serve this dish. One of the restaurant which could be named is Oh! Calcutta! restaurant in Kolkata, India. This variation of mutton curry is prepared using a coconut milk base.

       Kosha mangsho:
It is one of the variations of mutton curry which can also be said as the Bengali version. Traditionally it is prepared as a part of celebration of Kali Puja specifically in the states of Bengal.
The kosha mangsho is less juice and as compared to other mutton curry, the content of gravy is more. Basically it is a tradition dish of Bengal therefore it is prepared in a kosha style. This style of cooking helps in retaining the flavour of mutton and moisture with the help of using sautéing and slow cooking method. 92 years old restaurant in Kolkata named Golbari is famous and specialises in this dish.

The ingredients required for making mutton curry and its detailed recipe is given below:
Ingredients Required:
For marination:
       300 grams of boneless mutton
       1 ¼ tea spoon of ginger garlic paste
       ½ tea spoon of red chilli powder
       ¼ tea spoon of turmeric powder
       2 table spoon of curd
       Salt as per taste
For the curry:
       1 ¼ to ½ table spoon of oil
       Cinnamon stick of 1 inches approx.
       2 green cardamoms
       2 tea spoon of meat masala
       1 large spring curry leaves
       Green chillies slit 1
       1 cup of fined chopped onion
       ¼ cup of tomatoes puree
       ½ cup of water
       Coriander leaves of garnishing purpose


Firstly, marinate mutton with ginger garlic paste, then put some turmeric powder on it. Now add some red chilli powder on it and salt as per taste. Now add curd on the marinated mutton and put it in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or so. Before starting cooking keep the meat out of the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.  Now heat oil in a pan and sauté cardamom and cinnamon for 2 minutes.

Now add onion to it and sauté until golden. Put the flame of the burner as low as possible and now add a marinated meat to it, sauté it for 7 to 8 minutes. Put the lid of the pan and cook it covered for at least 10 minutes. Add meat masala to it, only when u see the moisture begin to release and sauté it for 5 to7 minutes. 

Now add curry leaves and tomato puree and sauté it till the raw smell of tomatoes goes away. Add water and pressure cook it for 3 to 4 whistle on a medium flame. When pressure goes off stir the curry and then serves mutton masala with roti, rice or paratha. The only thing I hate about Mutton is it is made on low heat so as to retain its moisture and juicy nature which makes me or any mutton lover wait a lot. This dish is just mouth- watering that you just want to go have it now…

Keep cooking… enjoy eating it!
