Sujata Mastani was set up in 1968 and began its journey as a small shop in the busy heart of the city. Since the beginning, they have employed the traditional French Pot method to create their range of fruit-flavored ice creams or Mastanis.
They don't use any preservatives either and their products are organic. While in the traditional French Pot method, eggs are used, at Sujata Mastani they don't use any eggs to prepare ice creams. "It is named Mastani as the product looks very attractive and as beautiful as Bajirao's Mastani.
Our Rose Milk and Mango topping (ice cream) Mastanis are popular," says owner Sachin Kondhalkar. In 1984, the ice cream parlour introduced the Mango Mastani and made it a rage.
Today, they offer more than 20 flavors that are priced between Rs 50 to Rs 90. Initially they also used to make a Dahi ice-cream (which they don't serve anymore) which was very popular. During winter you can savor Mastanis in flavors such as Custard Apple and Strawberry as well. The Kesar Mango flavor and the plain Mango and plain Kesar flavors are also good.
