The business was started by our father P. Sheik Meeran in 1977. “We are from Aaraampannai Village near Tirunelveli. My father first sold ice creams made of milk, sugar and vanilla essence for existence. ,”.

The ice cream immediately became the most sought after and people fondly called it as ‘Bhai’ ice cream. In the evenings, Sheik Meeran started selling jigarthanda in push cart. “Though this drink is available everywhere, ours is quite different from the others. We mixed ‘basundi’ to add more taste to the drink,” .

We sells two types of jigarthanda. The ordinary and special. The main ingredients that go into the making of jigarthanda are milk, almond pisin, basundi, ice cubes and sherbeth. The special variety has more khoya than the ordinary one. “We prepare our own sherbeth. It is tough because proper care during the preparation is a must and that is the secret of our success.”
