“Gola Ice Recipe” – Flavors, Grated Ice & A Dash Of Corpse!!!

About Food Habits, who doesn’t like these “Ice Golas“, the colorful delicacy, which cherishes our childhood memories.

Ice slabs – main ingredient for ‘Ice Golas’, is as well used for preserving corpse in morgues. Well, in India we have a clan of street food lovers. When we talk specifically about food habits, the quality, flavor and price differs, few people opt to eat on streets, and few in cafes.

Do we actually give a thought on parameters like HYGIENE? Well who can control the urges of tongue!?!  A few recently published articles about ‘chats‘ (quick snacks) were an eye opener to many – one such instance was about a vendor who was caught on a ‘cam’ while mixing urine in Paani Puri/ Gol Gappa (click to see the YouTube video)..

Disgusting yet, people  tend to disregard such news telecasted  in concern of the public & go out hunting for “diseases on a plate”  when the digestive system in our body which is 30feet in length just digests what’s fed irrespective of taste, why are we concerned more, about impressing our tongue which is hardly 4 inches to 4’1/4 inches!!!

This very sight was awfully shocking which was the reason for me to publish this in my blog: It was a misty morning, as every other day went to the nearest store to buy a few condiments for the day, there adjacent to the store was a guy’s residence who was a “Gola Ice” vendor, was waiting for someone. In a few seconds time, I saw an ambulance which arrived at his residence & a hospital staff who got down from the ambulance & helped the ‘Gola Ice’ vendor  in unloading an “ice slab“, the “Gola Ice” vendor was charged INR. 200/- for that, who later cut the huge slab to many segments & stored it in a “Thermal-storage”.

Later at 10 AM, on the way to a friend’s place, while crossing the store which I visited the very morning, saw the “Gola Ice” vendor, grating the ice slabs delivered to him that morning, to prepare GOLAs for customers who were salivating around his stall.

May not all the Gola vendors do this, but surely not all vendors can afford to purchase ice slabs prepared of mineral water, obviously.

Well, few points to be thought of:

  • How long would have the corpse been preserved on the ice slab?

  • Well recently the hospitals have replaced ice-slab way of preserving corpses, to refrigeration techniques in morgue, yet there may be government hospitals who follow the old skool way.
  • Reason of death, infectious diseases or allergies, the person died, would have suffered from.
  • Note, when human skin is in contact with chilled dry ice, layers of skin stick to it – similarly is of the corpse.
If you are salivating to taste a corpse, you might end up paying a HEAVY PRICE!!!

  1. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues
