Today, I am going straight to my ancestral town to scoop up - Gadbad. You read that right - it's an ice-cream from Mangalore. My great grandparents spent their early years in Mangalore before shifting their residence to Mumbai. Of course, Gadbad icecream wasn't invented that time. I read about it for the first time in "Upper Crust". It appeared to be Mangalore's answer to the ice cream sundae.
Keeping up my fiasco theme of Ghotala and Locho, I thought that this "Gadbad" too fits the bill So I made my own quick version. I chose 3 flavors of ice-cream, made a bowl of jelly and used up some fresh and dried fruits. Choose any flavors of ice-cream, fruits, dry fruits that you like. You can't go wrong with this "gadbad"!
