It takes less than 30 minutes to cook this sumptuous meal and be happy you did a right thing today by NOT eating out.
Stewed jira-eggplant, braised bittergourd with jaggery and tamarind, hot spinach-zucchini-kadhi…. all under 30 minutes..
slow cooked to preserve the maximum nutrients… I can’t explain better than this pic.

Those kitchen-morons just don’t know the best of it all.. I am surprised to see the amount of negative publicity in the press around Indian Food. The number of options we have for low caloried, high fiber content coupled with super good nutrition is just mind blowing. For example, look at this dinner option:
Bajra-Jowar Dosa topped with onions and served with veggie-filled Sambar ( a thick lentil soup with super beneficial herbs, spices and lots of vegetables ) and peanut chutney.
very delicious, mouth watering combination with amazing health benefits.. It takes pages to explain why you should focus on lentils, millets, fiber and vegetables..

Wanna dine light but with hellafa fiber, anti-oxidants, low-calorie-high-energy cereals and essential elements with a punch of herbal medicine right in your kitchen? Taste this raw mint, cumin, coriander, saunf, red chilli and turmeric that went into the making of simple rotis served with a spicy curry of cabbage, carrot and beans.
When the dominating aroma of fresh mint reaches your nostrils, the strong flavor fills your palate and the cool aftertaste makes you close your eyes and bend your head back, then you know you are ready for dinner 🙂
Not to mention the heat it all generates, you surely would be more resilient to the winter weather 🙂 hail the herbs.

I didn’t realize at first but that is a freshly baked French baguette served with Israeli olive oil from the Arbel mountains at the Sea of Galilee, sprinkled with Italian seasoning and the famous Californian garlic salt… truly Global cuisine? haha, no, a globetrotter’s humble dinner I would say 🙂
I finally figured it out and its my responsibility to share this secret recipe with the rest of the world. Whenever a husband communicates with his wife, he must remember these 3 rules: 1) Say it with love; 2) Say it softly; 3) Say it again… I bet you will never have a communication problem again.. for all the marital bliss for eternity.. All the best to you.
