I’m not sure what this truly means, but I’ve received two awards and I’m grateful for it. I’d like to thank storyofthekitchn for nominating me for these awards. I suddenly feel like I’m back to school days though i only received awards for my intellectual abilities and i was never an athlete.
This is a cool refreshing drink to beat the summer heat.
It is so so hot these past few days that I’ve been going to the gym as i cant take the heat & decided to make this summer drink made out of mangoes.
Idli is a South Indian dish. Its very healthy and i can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, anytime of the day. Each idli is about 40 calories only. Its made out of rice & urad dal. It requires a lot of time & prep work. Takes about 9 hours to make it, but its well worth it.
This is in no way healthy! And sometimes its okay to indulge, that is what keeps me sane. I had oranges & peaches in my fruit basket so i thought of making cupcakes using them; skeptical at first thinking how they would turn out, but hey!! nothing lost /nothing gained & i went ahead with my idea. They did come out good & here i’m sharing with you all after my photographing spree.
I usually go alone to run everyday and its amazing what my small body can do, and what you feel after a good run is just “accomplishment”. But, lately I have found a friend with similar interest in running as me, and today i went running with her; but i ran at a quiet slower pace than usual because of company & the talking, and i was enjoying it as well. I was enjoying the trail, the company, the weather. It turned out a good day with a good workout rather than my usual self running alone with a bunch of songs as my company.
A healthy quick no cream or butter tomato soup. Very basic.
Oh there are lots of tomato soup recipes, and here’s one more!! Its comfort food for me. Takes me back to my childhood home. Its the way my mum makes it, and i was craving for it today after a good workout at the gym.
I’ve seen lots of recipes with butter & heavy cream in it & c’mon, i just busted my ass in the gym & i absolutely don’t want to waste all that effort. So here it is & its totally healthy; so have 2 cups if you wish
A sweet pudding made using milk & condensed milk (Yummm).
I can have condensed milk as it is but then i stop myself thinking about the calories. This dish requires agar agar for it to set, which you will find in Asian stores. Its almost transparent & crunchy.
