Indian Gooseberry(Amla), Curry leaves, Ginger and Garlic juice- Juice to lower your LDL Cholesterol, A hair Tonic

                               Information Technology, the single word after its reign in India, has changed the quality of most of the Indian's life. It has made a drastic change almost in all the fields of nation, from real estate to food outlets. The increase was not only detected in prices, but also in cholesterol levels of an Indian adult. 

                              Earlier the blood test were only conducted for diabetic, checking thyroid and only specific ill symptoms. But nowadays the test is conducted for checking the cholesterol levels. Very recently I got to know that there are two types of cholesterol: HDL Cholesterol(the good one) and LDL Cholesterol (the bad one). Unfortunately many(indian adults) have high LDL numbers.

Muskmelon(cantaloupe) and Mint Smoothie- An Ultimate Low Calorie Smoothie

                                    I was not a big buff of these muskmelons, till I tasted this muskmelon juice. Got to taste the muskmelon juice, when in my uncle's house, during a bright summer. Muskmelon juice served by my aunt, was soothing for the whole long summer day. It was the Day One, I became fond of these muskmelons. Wherever and whenever I find it, I used to buy and make smoothies and juices.

Prawn Bajji recipe / Prawn Fritters with garlic touch

                    Bajji/fritters is an ultimate snack, that when made with any ingredient (either plantain, onion or aloo/potato,etc) will turn the whole scrumptious. That too, if the ingredient itself is divine, yes that would be my day then. The divine ingredient is nothing but prawn. It has a unique feature that, even for a beginner in cooking, the outcome will be tasty. Fritters with prawn would be heavenly, but wanted to give an unusual touch.

Amla,Ginger and lemon juice with honey for kids

                   Diet, has become a common word today, used regardless of ages. In earlier days, the adults and elders were dieting, but now even children are urged to maintain a proper diet. The big reason behind this is the increased use of the white sugar. Avoid Three Whites (sugar, rice and milk by products) is the regular advice by doctors these days.

                  Memorializing my childhood days in my grandparents house., we used to have morning coffee made with palm jaggery and juices in any form made with honey only and no sugar at all. When as a kid, would refuse spicy side dishes, so honey accompanied my idlis and dosas.

                  Any indigestion problem, my grandma's first aid would be juice made with ginger and honey. All sort of indigestion would have been vanished, for the above drink. Now me as a homemaker, practising the same simple and healthy (yet no side effects) medicine for my family, when necessary. 
Kids would also go for this drink as honey is added.

Papaya Lime Smoothie

                                    Making Smoothies are always irresistible. That too when trying new combos out the the fruits you like, is something better. I am fond of eating papaya fruit from my childhood days. My grandma always insist us (me n my sissy) on eating papaya fruits. We were lucky enough to eat those fruits, highly farm fresh. We right away pluck it from the tree and enjoy it(after washing and peeling done). One interesting thing that would happen is, we would let the papaya to ripe on the tree(for having it on the next day). But on the next day,  monkeys would be more smarter than us and have these fruits, before us. Usually there used to be a big competition between us and monkeys, to get the best and ripen one. (either papaya or other fruits in our garden).

Chickoo or Sapota Milkshake with Dryfruits and Nuts/ Sapodilla Smoothie

                               Remember having these milkshakes during my college days. Being a huge fan of sapota milkshake wanted to try it at home. When trying something at home, we can incorporate our new ideas, isn't it. So iron rich sapota milkshake, by adding the dry fruits and nuts, has become even more healthful.

Adai Recipe/ Nutrient Rich Lentil Pancakes

                     My first day of my work, was filled with lots of excitements, joining formalities, new intros, and the list was continuing. It was the time for us to break for my first lunch (not as a student), it was dusk almost by that time. In my company food court, there were many restaurants and famous food chains of Tamil Nadu, but I had packed lunch from my lovable sister. I could find a big queue in a particular food counter, because of my hurry was less keen to know about the queue.
