It is not Rice but Ice

The first impression from a local digital creator in Himachal Pradesh which has gone viral creates an impression that some foodies are eating rice from a bowl in the Himalayas. But actually, they are eating ice and it is a special treat!

Thanks to a viral video by a local digital creator, the world now knows about this cool tradition from the hills. Himachal’s ‘ice’ is making waves online as a hot new food trend. Imagine crushed ice mixed with spicy flavours that leave your taste buds amazed and curious. The internet is full of surprises, especially when it comes to food. From bizarre food combos to unusual dishes, you’ll find it all on your social media feed. This video showing a unique dish made with ice caught everyone’s attention.

In the video shared on the Instagram handle @ruc. hhiiiiii, the digital creator declares that eating ice is a tradition in her hometown in the hills in Himachal Pradesh. Then she shows how to make the icy treat. She crushed ice from Himachal and added in a green-coloured paste made of fresh coriander, tangy imly, and fiery red chilli powder. She says that you can add more spices if you like, but sugar is a must!

Many scientists and conservationists are trying to save glacier melting water for drinking water. Now this new food can supplement the local needs where ice is available in plenty in winter.
